What if I need maintenance?
Just give us a call! You can call the office during normal business hours or put in a help ticket on the portal on our website. In the event of an emergency (after hours), you would call 864.235.0185 and choose the appropriate option.
Is parking first come first serve or do we pay for a permit/spot?
It is first come, first serve. We ask that our residents have their guest park a little farther away, so all of our residents have 1st priority to the closer spots.
Is the community pet friendly?
Very! We LOVE to visit with your pets!! We do have some restricted breeds, so just check with us before you apply. Once you do, you will also do a pet - screening application for each pet in your household.
What is the pet policy?
We allow most pets with the exception of dog breeds that are considered generally aggressive.
What are your restricted breeds?
Chow, Dobermans, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Presa Canarios, Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies, wolf Hybrids and any Pitbull Terrier breed (Staffordshire Terriers)
Can I sublet my apartment?
Can I use financial aid to help pay my rent?
Yes, any form of income is considered: financial aid, child support, alimony, disability, retirement, etc.
Are your apartments furnished?
Can visitors use the amenities?
Yes! They must always be accompanied by a leaseholder.
How do I access my apartment if I lose my key?
If it is during normal business hours, we can provide you with a spare. We do not provide after-hours lockout service.
Once I move in, how do I pay my rent and when is it due?
You can pay your rent online at Haywoodpointe.com. Rent is ALWAYS due on the 1st. A late fee is added on the morning of the 6th.
Can I paint walls in my apartment? Can I hang things on the walls like a TV or artwork?
Of course! We want you to make your home, your own! All we ask is that when you get ready to move out, the walls are painted back, and any large anchor holes are patched.
If I need to move out, how do I give notice? When do I have to give notice?
When you decide its time to move, you will need to provide a 60-day written notice. An email to one of our team members will suffice, but we also have a form you can come in and sign as well.
Are there termination fees if I need to leave suddenly?
If you need to break your lease, you will need to provide a 60-day written notice and provide a fee equal to 1 month’s rent as a termination fee. Any concessions you received must also be paid back.
Who will be able to get into my apartment and for what reasons? How much notice will I be provided?
Maintenance will have access to your apartment, but only when you request service. The only time we would make entry into your apartment without at least 24-hour notice is if there is an emergency, either in or around your apartment. For example, if your downstairs neighbor is flooding, we may need to enter your apartment to make sure you don’t have any leaks.
How is trash collected? What about recycle? How do I get rid of a large piece of furniture?
We provide Valet Trash service for household trash. Please, only use the provided Valet Waste Trash can outside of your door. Placing just a “trash bag” outside of your door is a violation. Large furniture must be taken off site to be disposed of. The closest dump is O'Neal Residential Waste and Recycling Center.
What things do I need to maintain in the apartment? Do you supply AC filters, refrigerator filters, light bulbs?
We supply AC filters during your entire lease. We will supply the florescent bulbs in the kitchen.
Can I bring my own washer and dryer?
Yes! All our apartments have full size hookups for washers and dryers. If you don’t have your own, no worries! We have a laundry facility here on site!
Do occupants have to be on the lease?
We do not have occupants unless they are minors, under the age of 18. Anyone 18 years or older, must be on the lease.
