  7. How do I sublease an apartment?
    Come by the TLT Properties' office at 41 East University in Champaign, or call us about getting a sublease form. The people subleasing must also fill out a regular application, which TLT Properties must review before OK'ing any sublease.

  8. If I sublease, what responsibilities do I still have for my old apartment?
    You are still responsible for making sure the new tenant pays rent on time, and will incur any cleaning charges that occur after the lease expires.

  9. Do I need Renter's Insurance? Will TLT Properties cover any of my property?
    All tenants should get Renter's Insurance if they are concerned about their personal property. TLT Properties' insurance policy, in most cases, does NOT cover tenant's personal property.

  10. Who do I contact for maintenance services?
    Call our man Jim Wilson 217-621-2800 or Email him. We do not cover most problems created through renter negligence - i.e. punching a hole in the wall.

  11. If I pay my rent and bills, but one of my roomates doesn't, am I still responsible?
    Yes. If your name is on the lease, you are responsible for all obligations detailed on that lease.
