REQUIREMENTS TO SIGN A LEASE
- You must be 18 years old to sign a lease.
- You must provide a valid driver's license to sign a lease. (No Miami student ID's).
- You must pay the total required refundable deposit amount for the lease agreement at the time the lease is signed.
- You must have toured the property prior to signing the lease.
- To tour a house, please stop by the property with your group and politely ask the current tenants if you can see it.
- To tour an apartment, please call or email our office to schedule an appointment.
LEASE SIGNING PROCESS
- To start the lease signing process, please come to our office with at least half of your group and the total refundable deposit. For example: an 8 person house = $6,000 deposit. Therefore to start a lease, you would need 4 people to come to our office with $6,000.
- Within 48 hours, the remaining tenants need to sign the lease. If they do not sign, then at our discretion we may lease the property to a new group. However the initial group that did sign will still be bound to the lease until a new group fully signs the lease and meets our requirements.
- We accept cash, check, or money order payable to: Park Place Real Estate. We do not accept credit cards.

- We lease our available properties on a first come, first serve basis. WE DO NOT HOLD PROPERTIES.
- Once you sign a lease, you are legally bound. There is no grace period or cancellation policy.
- An incomplete lease does not necessarily mean it's invalid, however if a new, eligible group presents itself, the landlord has the right to lease an incomplete lease to another group.
- The deposit will be returned to you at the end of the lease term less any charges you may incur during your tenancy.
- The deposit rate is based on the occupancy the property is historically leased
- For houses with the occupancy of 8 or more people, we will allow groups to sign leases with one less person than the required occupancy, however the deposit amount will not change.
- The utilities are separate and paid by the tenants. To find out the monthly average, either ask the current tenants or contact the utility companies directly.
- We will allow tenants going abroad to share a spot on a lease with another person for the semester they will be abroad.
- You can look on "Miami University's Study Abroad" Facebook page to assist in locating someone to share your spot.
