What should I know before my
son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?
A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of
the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through
the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the
lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the
remainder of the lease agreement.
What deposits are required?
The deposits are $250.00 for a 1 bedroom/1 bath, $350.00 for a 2
bedroom/1 bath and $450.00 deposit for a 3 bedroom/2 bath unit.
Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are completed
with no damages to apartment or furnishings. Deposits could be
higher if you cannot get a guarantor.
Is renters insurance required?
No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can
purchase to protect your personal property as the
management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants.
Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen
could be covered. TCC doesn’t not promote any specific insurance
coverage company to use.
What type of apartments are
Spanish Trace Apartments offers 1, 2, and 3 bedroom floor plans.
With six different options to choose from, ask your leasing
specialist which floor plan may work best for you based on what you
are looking for in your new apartment home.

long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living
together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues
within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If
they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist
with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.
