How Much is Due at Signing?

The down-payment for Charleston Townes is $580, and the entire amount is due either at our General Leasing Day when you schedule a time to come back and sign your lease, or, if you were not present at our General Leasing Day, at your lease signing.

  • $30 – Key Fee* (non-refundable)
    • *If you are signing onto a home where 1+ tenants are staying (renewing), you will not pay the key fee.
  • $300 – Routine Systems Maintenance Fee (non-refundable)
  • $250 – Security Deposit (Refundable)

The $580 down-payment must be paid via your online account. We cannot accept cash payments.


Joint Account vs Individual Accounts

This is a demo image

As long as we receive a Guaranty of Lease from each tenant (essentially a co-signer), you will be liable for your 25% of the monthly rent instead of jointly/severally responsible for the full amount of rent each month.  Keep in mind that any damages/deductions are ALWAYS joint/several per the lease agreement.

Free, Plentiful Parking for Residents & Guests!

Every resident gets a parking sticker, free of charge, upon move in. Each unit also gets 2 guest parking hang tags, that allow their guests to park anywhere in the Charleston lot. Residents and guests can also park across the street in the last row (closest to Lucy Drive) of the Valley Fitness parking lot.

Don’t have a car? Visit HDPT’s site for current bus routes.  There is a bus stop located directly by the community along Lucy Drive and another bus stop directly across the street on the corner of Lucy Drive and Reservoir Street.

Visit for all real time transit system information.

Is Charleston Townes a Pet Friendly Community?

YES! The down-payment is $400: $200 is refundable if there are no pet-related damages at move-out; $200 is nonrefundable to deodorize & deflea the premises at move-out. The monthly pet rate is $35 for any pet. If you would like to get a cat/dog, we’ll need written approval from all your roommates (a simple email to the Property Manager is perfect!) before a Pet Lease can be signed.  Please keep in mind that aggressive breeds (Rottweiler’s or Pit Bulls) are not allowed. German Sheppard’s & Bulldogs are considered on a case-by-case basis.
