FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN INDIVIDUAL LEASE?
Individual leasing means that each person is responsible only for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate transfers or moves out, you’re not responsible for their payment.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Copper Beech San Marcos includes: Extended cable, internet, washer & dryer, parking, access to all of Copper Beech San Marcos's amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.
DO YOU HAVE A ROOMMATE MATCHING SYSTEM?
Yes! If your student doesn’t have a roommate, we can find them one. Each resident will fill out a Roommate Matching form so we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person available.
WHEN ARE PAYMENTS DUE?
You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under your lease—one installment, two installments, or twelve installments. If you choose to pay a single installment for the entire amount, that single installment is due August 1. If you choose to pay in two semester installments, those installments are due August 1 and January 1. If you choose to pay in twelve installments, the first installment is due on August 1 and the remaining eleven installments are due on the 1st of the next eleven months. Please note these are all installment payment options and not monthly rent.
HOW DO I QUALIFY?
There are a couple of ways to qualify for a lease. You may apply as a lease-holding resident and provide personal income equal to 3x the amount of rent or you may utilize a guarantor who provides the income portion to qualify.
HOW DO I MAKE A PAYMENT?
We accept payment via check, money order, or through the online system.

DOES MY LEASE PROVIDE INSURANCE COVERAGE IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, THEFT OR NATURAL CAUSES?

We suggest getting renter's insurance for your personal belongings. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something does happen.

Are leases for families with children available?
Yes. The property’s policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of the property, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.
