Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find frequently asked questions about Uncommon Columbus apartments conveniently nestled between The Short North and The Ohio State University. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered on this page, feel free to contact our leasing office.

What’s an individual lease?

An individual lease means you are only responsible for your portion of rent. Although you may have roommates that share the common areas of your apartment, you are not financially responsible for them and their names are not on your lease.

Do I need someone to co-sign my lease?

Only the person living in the unit needs to sign the lease; however, if you don’t meet certain qualifications on the credit portion of the application, you will need a guarantor to sign a Guaranty Form.

What’s a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who is financially stable and who guarantees timely payment on your lease. We require a guarantor only when the person living in the unit is unable to meet the application’s credit qualifications.

How much is rent?

Rent varies depending on the size of the unit and floor preference. Please Contact our leasing office to learn more about pricing before units sell out.

What’s included in the rent?

The rent includes internet, cable with Big 10 Network channels, trash, sewer and water. We also provide electricity which is billed back to each resident individually so you can avoid the headache of collecting money from your roommates.

Is there an application fee or security deposit?

There is a $50 application fee which covers a background check on the resident and credit check on the guarantor. We also require a redecoration fee. Contact our leasing office to learn more about pricing and deposits.

Does furniture come with my apartment?
