Q&A: What do I need to know about renewing?

Depending one which property you live in and when your current lease is up, the start of the new year may mean you need to start thinking about renewing.  There are several perks to renewing your current lease.  For one, it can benefit you financially since you won't need to come up with another security deposit for a new apartment and new lease elsewhere.  Another blessing is not having to move!  Moving out of one place and into another can be stressful, time-consuming, and costly.  On top of those reasons, our different properties have additional incentives for you to renew the lease and continue calling Haverkamp Properties your "home sweet apartment."

We checked in with our property managers in Cedar Rapids, Ames, Ankeny, and Des Moines to see what they had to say about renewing.  


What do I need to know about renewing?

Aaron Hill, Kirkwood Living & Campus View Manager (Cedar Rapids)

"It is time to start making plans for next year. If you renew by March 15th 2013, you will receive our lowest prices and protect yourself from a rent increase. If you would prefer a different apartment or roommate for next year, we can provide you with options. Advantages to renewing include hassle-free living and utilities included. Plus, you won't have to worry about moving! We also have renewal specials going on for residents who return the sign leases by March 15, 2013. Stop by the office or call 319-363-8388 with any questions or to get the renewal process started."

Dave Hyman, Ames Property Manager

"For those of you unfamiliar with the Ames rental market, it is already that time to ask residents about their renewal intentions for August 2013. We have several incentives in hopes of keeping you as a resident in our Ames communities. Have your housing needs changed?  Enjoy the convenience of staying with Haverkamp Properties and ask about our $100 Transfer Bonus! If you're planning to move but will be remaining in the Ames area, please remember that we have over 550 studios, 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom apartments and townhomes to choose from throughout Ames. Short on Money? No need to find extra funds needed for a new deposit. Haverkamp Properties can transfer your existing deposit to your new apartment. Why pay the extra expenses to move to another company? Stay with us and find out how we can save you money.  We have a special Fun Money promotion for renewing as well! Stop by our office and talk to one of our friendly leasing agents to find out the Fun Money promotion, renewal deadlines, leasing rates and terms, and anything else you have questions about."

John Peterman, Des Moines Area Manager

"In the Des Moines and Ankeny area, our office will typically provide you with a renewal invitation about 2 months prior to your lease and date. Within the renewal invitation packet there will be material pertaining to any current specials that we may be offering and other important information that we would like you to be aware of. Additionally, there is an enclosed form for you to fill out and return to us stating your plans for renewing! Be sure to read through all of the information provided for you. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your renewal invitation, be sure to contact the leasing office for more details.  If you decide that you will not be renewing your lease with us, the renewal invitation will serve as a reminder for you to provide us with your 30-day written notice. You are required to provide us with a full 30-days written notice prior to moving out. Remember, notices are not prorated so they must be received no later than the last day of the month preceding your last month of occupancy. You should have about a month from the time that you received the invitation to submit your notice to us! Keep in mind, if you have any specific questions regarding your renewal, do not hesitate to contact the leasing office for more information!"

Thanks to our expert property managers for their information and insight!  We hope you'll be renewing your lease with us and call Haverkamp Properties your "home sweet apartment" for another year!
