What are the terms of a POLYCORP lease?
We use a combination of fixed term leases and year-to-year leases. The tenancy will continue to run until one of the following occurs: the fixed term ends; or with a year-to-year lease either you or POLYCORP gives proper notice to terminate as outlined in the Nova Scotia Residential Tenancies Program Guide.
What does 'Smoke-Free Buildings' mean?
All POLYCORP properties are Smoke Free. Residents of your suite and your guests are not permitted to smoke in your suite, throughout any common areas, and on your balcony or deck. This includes cigarettes, e-cigarettes (vaping), cigars, pipes, drugs of any type (including cannabis, even with a prescription). We also have a policy of no smoking within 100 feet of the buildings. Our residents are prohibited from growing any substances as well.
What is your pet policy?
We know you love your animals; however, no dogs are allowed at our properties, including visiting dogs. No other pets are allowed unless specifically authorized.
Is there parking available?
Our properties have either underground parking or a combination of underground and surface parking available at an additional fee. Outdoor visitor parking is available.
Do I require tenant insurance?
Yes. It is a requirement to reside in one of our apartment homes. Tenant insurance is there to protect you and your personal contents from damage resulting from an accident by you or another tenant in the building. Should there ever be a building-wide issue, our insurance protects the building; however, if your personal property is damaged due to this, you need to be covered by your own insurance. Many policies also cover additional living expenses should you need to vacate while repairs are being carried out. You can also be liable for any harm you cause to any part of the building and to others who live or visit there. Tenant insurance is available for this as well.
Will a credit check be conducted?
Yes. POLYCORP does a complete credit check as part of your application.
Do you require a security deposit?
Yes. As per provincial regulations, a security deposit of 50% of the value of a month’s rent is required at the time of lease signing. When you decide to leave, your security deposit will be returned to you in full, without interest, provided the suite is in the same condition as when you moved in, and that a thorough cleaning has been completed.
