We only accept online payments through E-Check or Credit Card payments on our Resident Portal. We are unable to accept manual or cash payments unfortunately. If you click on the "Pay Your Rent" shortcut link under "Residents", you can easily make payments on a monthly basis, or if you wish, you can set up recurring payments. Setting up an account also allows you to track your payment history. "Pay Your Rent" gives you control of timely payments and helps avoid late charges.

We pay for high-speed internet, cable TV (with HBO), water, sewer, and trash pick-up.
Residents are responsible for paying electricity.

No, that would be at your own expense.
