We will also keep our residents connected to events going on in the Flagstaff community so you don’t miss anything!

Individual Leases
Plus Icon

Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate moves out of Elara for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why Elara is your best option! 

What is included in the monthly installment?
Plus Icon

Elara at The Sawmill installments include: Internet, sewer, trash & recycling, washer & dryer, and access to all of Elara’s amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them. 

What does it mean to have an individual lease?
Plus Icon

Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the remainder of their term, you’re not responsible for their payment.

What are the parking or public transportation options at Elara?
Plus Icon

Transportation in Flagstaff is huge. We offer two parking options for a low monthly rate accessible to all of our residents. Or if you would rather commute with public transportation - Elara at The Sawmill will provide Mountain Line bus passes to all of our residents free of charge so you can travel with ease. 

Do you have a roommate matching system?
Plus Icon

Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information. 

When is my installment due?
Plus Icon

You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under the lease – one installment, two installments, or twelve installments. If you choose to pay a single installment for the entire amount, that single installment is due August 1. If you choose to pay in two semester installments, those installments are due August 1 and January 1. If you choose to pay in twelve installments, the first installment is due on August 1 and the remaining eleven installments are due on the 1st of the next eleven months. Please note that these are all installment payment options and not monthly rent. 

How do I pay my installment?
Plus Icon

We accept payment via check, money order, or through the online system. 

Is there insurance coverage in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease provide coverage for my belongings? 
Plus Icon

Elara’s insurance will not cover your personal belongings. We require getting renter’s insurance for this reason. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something were to happen. 

What if I need to break my lease or don't return for the spring semester?
Plus Icon

Elara’s lease is binding and cannot be broken. If you cannot live at Elara at The Sawmill after signing your lease, you will need to re-let. Please call the leasing office for information on re-letting. 

What if I need maintenance in my apartment?

If you need maintenance, simply go to your resident portal on our website and fill out a maintenance request. You can also call or stop by the front desk. If it is an emergency, please notify the front office immediately. 

How do I receive mail and packages?

Elara offers a 24-hour Amazon Hub – so you can pick up your packages at your convenience. Your mail will be delivered to your apartment’s individual mailbox located on Elara’s property. 

What do I need to bring to my new apartment?

- Bedding for a Full XL-Size bed
- Toiletries

Are leases for families with children available?
Plus Icon

Yes. The property’s policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of the property, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.
