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 deposit is $1000 and would be due in order to reserve the
apartment. This deposit could be waived if a guarantor also signed
for the resident. If he/she fails to make payments on the
apartment, the guarantor will be responsible to provide those
payments. Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are
completed with no damages to apartment or furnishings. A guarantor
must meet the following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have
good credit standing with a 600+ credit score, and gross 3.5 times
the rental amount monthly.
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. The Collier Companies doesn’t not promote any
specific insurance coverage company to use.
What type of apartments are
The Connection at Statesboro offers 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom floor
plans. With 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.

Do you allow re-assignments (commonly
referred to subleasing)?
Yes, there is a reassignment fee of $250. However, the resident
will be responsible for finding his/her own re-assignment. Once
someone has agreed to take over the lease, both parties will work
with the leasing team to complete any necessary paperwork.
Can my child pick their roommate?
It is not necessary to lease the apartment with other roommates.
However, we are more than willing to accommodate those that already
have roommates in mind. Roommate matching forms will be completed
at the time of application. Our roommate-matching survey is used to
best place each resident with another person that has the same
interests based on his/her answers provided.
Do you allow co-ed apartments?
Our policy is to only place residents with those of the same sex,
unless the apartment is fully leased with individuals who have a
written agreement of the living situation they prefer.
What if my child doesn’t get along
with his/her new roommates?
We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries
immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a
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.
