Can I move in early?
If you are looking to move in early, you must communicate that with the agent as early as possible. Please plan to move in on the date and time specified on your lease, if there is no time on the lease plan for after 12pm. KR Boston cannot release keys until the time specified on your lease unless otherwise noted.
For move-ins on September 1st a lot of current occupants are moving out on the 31st of August, For this reason, we can only guarantee a move-in on 9/1.
For vacant units, some landlords will ask for an additional prorated rent amounting to the daily rate over the span you are in the apartment prior to the lease.
What if something in the apartment is broken upon move in.
With the short turnaround times between tenancy, landlords have to address issues based on urgency. If there is an urgent issue in the apartment please contact the landlord first. As the agent we can only help communicate the issue to the proper party. We would be happy to help as much as possible! Please keep us in the loop and reach out to the landlord to help resolve any issues.

What it means to be a cosigner?
A cosigner may be required for certain applicants. Applicants who have no verifiable income will require a cosigner, this generally includes (students, working professionals with little-no job history.
What a cosigner is to a lessee is essentially a guarantee, hence the alternative name of Guarantor. They will sign onto the lease as an individual that agrees to take over the expense of the lessee in the case that they do not pay their rent or default on the rent.
To do this they will need to fill out the cosigner form with all pertinent information. Once the landlord is approved, they will need to notarize the form and send it in to KR Boston.
