Detailed List of Damages and Miscellaneous Charges for University Apartments

Residents are responsible for any damages that are not recorded on the Apartment Inventory & Damage Report at Move-In.  Charges for damages are based on the recommendation of the Facilities Manager. The amount of the charge is based on material and labor costs. If you have occupied your apartment for more than one year, you will not be charged for normal carpet cleaning. Any excessive damage may result in additional cleaning charges or carpet replacement charges. If you have occupied your apartment for 3 or more years, you may not be charged for painting. This does not include any excessive damage i.e., crayon marks, large holes, etc. Any occupancy less than 3 years or any excessive marks or damage on walls will result in charges for apartment painting.

UA Facilities Management determines the extent of damages and whether the damages are the result of tenant negligence. The amount of any damage charges are based on material and labor. Cleaning charges are assessed on total vacancy of unit to the last remaining tenant(s) regardless of whether or not previous tenants damaged property or failed to clean the unit unless responsible party(ies) agree to be assessed for damages.

Any damages discovered after your roommate(s) moves out will be the responsibility of the remaining roommate(s). Consequently, it is to your advantage to report any damages before your roommate(s) moves out. If partial vacancy occurs, it is recom­mended that all tenants review the state of the apart­ment prior to the departure of tenant(s) to determine responsibility.

If the apartment is in need of extra cleaning, painting or repairs, it is to your advantage to arrange for ser­vices in order to keep damage and cleaning charges to a minimum.
