What type of housing is Adam & Bruce Apartments? Is it low-income?
Adam & Bruce Apartments (ABA) is a subsidized housing community for seniors over the age of 62 and the mobility/sensory impaired. The term “subsidized housing” means that the rent is based on income. A resident of the community pays approximately 30% of their income as rent.
How is rent calculated?
Resident rent is based on approximately 30% of income. A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your gross annual income and divide it by 12 months. This will give you an estimate of what your monthly rent could be.
What does the rent include?
Rental of the apartment for one month, as well as heat, water, and an electric allowance. An electric allowance is a certain amount taken off of the resident’s rent payment meant to help the resident pay the electric bill. The allowance amount is based on average usage for the apartment and may change annually. Residents will still receive an electric bill, but the allowance is intended to help pay for it. Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the state.
Is there a lease?
Yes, there is a one-year lease, but we are understanding to the necessity of unanticipated move-outs.
How many apartments are there?
ABA has 50 apartments.
How big are the apartments?
ABA offers spacious studio and one-bedroom apartments, as well as a few more accessible apartments for the sensory/mobility impaired. Studio apartments are approximately 415 square feet, and one-bedroom apartments and accessible apartments are approximately 540 square feet.
What is the Security Deposit?
The Security Deposit is the same as one month’s full rent (before the electric allowance) with a minimum of $50. This deposit is due in full at the signing of the lease.
Do you allow pets?
ABA welcomes you to bring your pets along with you. Fish and birds are welcomed without a deposit. Small dogs and cats are also welcome, with a pet deposit. There is a maximum of one cat or dog per apartment and there are specific size and breed restrictions.
What is the Pet Deposit?
The pet deposit is the same amount as the security deposit with a minimum of $50 and a maximum of $150. We can make payment arrangements for this deposit. Beginning with $50 and then a monthly payment of $10 until the deposit is paid in full.
Is there additional storage space available?
