Transfer frequently asked questions

How would transferring to a new home affect my lease?

If you want to transfer during the middle of an existing lease, you must sign an early termination agreement, and you will be required to sign a new lease for the home you want. If you want to transfer after your original lease ends, you will also be required to sign a new lease for the home you are approved to transfer into.
