Spooky Savings 2023 Special! 

Spooky Savings – 2023 Special – Details & Restrictions:

Applicants signing their first CHAD Lease can be granted up to $100.00 off their initial month’s rent amount if the Leaseholder(s) signs their CHAD lease between September 15, 2023 and September 30, 2023. This offer will appear on the lease as a “Lease Bonus” reflecting an amount of $100.00 or less to be applied to the Leaseholder’s initial pro-rated rent due. If the tenant’s initial pro-rated rent due at the lease signing is less than $100.00, the tenant’s initial pro-rated rent amount will be applied of equal value as the lease bonus. Applicant(s) must sign a lease and all applicable addendums, pay all move in fees due, start necessary utilities, and have keys at the time of the lease signing appointment, in order to constitute as a new move in/initial lease. Transferring residents and previous CHAD residents do not constitute as new residents. Renewed leases do not apply to this offer. If the credit does not reflect on the CHAD account, there is no credit applied. Additional restrictions may apply upon review.
