What type of lease lengths do you offer? 3 month. 6 month. 9 month. 12 month. etc.2015-05-23T08:21:08+00:00

We typically offer only annual (12 month) or longer leases. This is especially true for leases beginning in late July or early August. It will be very rare for us to still have availability by that time. We typically only have availability in (late/early) Dec/Jan, May/Jun, and Jul/Aug.

In the rare occasion that we have a unit that is still available after August 1st, we will offer a shorter term lease on it. Preferring at lease a May ending, but going off of the waitlist at that point. So if you’re looking to lease for just the fall, or the fall and spring, you can check our availability then and contact us if there is an opening. 

The other exceptions would be for the occasional December/January or May/June ending leases which is usually from a tenant that lived there long-term and was extended as a special case. Also in the case where someone were evicted for any reason. This type of unit availability and lease is rare and would be decided on a case-by-case basis.

We do offer longer than a one year lease for those who would like to lock their rental rate in at the current pricing. Our rents have never gone down from one year to the next, so it could be a good investment.

Do you have any photos/pictures of the units?2015-05-23T08:20:24+00:00

Yes, you can view photos/pictures online here:

https://www.hollemanbythepark.com/Leasing/Photos

PLEASE NOTE: The units have evolved over the years with slight variations in materials like vanities, tub surrounds, cabinets, counter tops, flooring, and closet doors. All units are painted with the same scheme which is tan walls with white trim/cabinets. There may be a few variations of stained wood, but it is rare. The flooring may vary between carpet in the living room with vinyl tile in the kitchen and bathroom or vinyl wood plank throughout the living room, kitchen, and bathroom. All bedrooms are carpeted. There may be other variations that are not listed here. We do not guarantee specific materials with our leases.

Is this too good to be true?2015-05-23T08:19:34+00:00

I’m addng this because it was a legitimate question that we received by email.

It’s not too good to be true. Yes it is a inexpensive place to live. Yes it’s that close to campus. Yes it’s convenient to just about everything that matters.

If there is a catch, I guess it’s just that it’s not a new property. Unless it was a teardown/rebuild, nothing in this part of town is new construction. Some people have to live in “the biggest, baddest, newest, most hip, all stainless steel appliance, cutting edge PC center, updated work out equipment, latest in tanning machines, largest pool on earth” type housing. So if that’s what you’re looking for, then this is not it.

But it is a nice, clean, safe, inexpensive little community tucked right off the road in the middle of town. So if you think we’re a fit for you, please schedule a viewing using the form below.

Q9. Do you allow pets?2019-03-01T20:23:11+00:00

Yes, we do allow pets. Up to two pets allowed. No more than 50 lbs combined weight.

The fee for the first pet is $400 and $200 for a second pet. We do not charge a monthly pet rent.
The following breeds are restricted: Pit Bull, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Akitas and all other aggressive breeds. A pet agreement must be turned in to our office with any applicable fees BEFORE the pet(s) is brought on to the property.

Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up all poop that their pet produces on the property. Failure to pick up after your pet will result in a $50 fine per occurrence.

Do we offer any specials?2015-05-23T08:18:14+00:00

Our properties are usually 100% occupied, so we rarely run any kind of move-in specials. If we have any, we will be sure to post them across the top of the front page of the site. You won’t have to wonder if we have one or not, if we do, you’ll definitely notice it.

Is there a laundry facility nearby?2015-05-23T08:17:40+00:00

Yes, there is a laundry facility right next door to the units. Walking distance.

Are parking fees included in my rent?2015-05-23T08:16:55+00:00

Yes. There are no additional parking fees.

When is my rent due and where do I pay it?2020-03-13T00:19:33+00:00

Please review your lease packet for specific dates, but typically tour rent is due on or before the 1st of the month. Your rent can be dropped off or mailed to the address at the property management office at BCR Realty:

BCR Realty
700 University Dr. E., Suite 108
College Station, TX 77840

Make checks payable to: Holleman by the Park
Be sure to put your unit number in the memo line of your check.

You can visit the property managemetn website at: http://www.bcrbcs.com

If you choose to drop your rent of in person, it must be received on or before the due date. If you mail it, it must be received by the due date, not just postmarked by the due date.

Do you do standard or individual (by the room) leases?2015-05-23T08:15:49+00:00

We do one lease per unit. So if the unit has multiple people living in it, they would be signing the same lease.

Do we have assigned parking spots?2015-05-23T08:15:14+00:00

No, you can park anywhere. The closer to your unit the better. We have over 70 parking spots for 40 units (64 bedrooms), so there is plenty of parking. many of the units only have one resident for two bedrooms, so there are a lot of available spots. The neighbors even use a few of our spots, but we don’t mind as long as our tenants have plenty.

Can you tell me more about the application and leasing process?2020-03-13T00:19:34+00:00

We use an industry standard Texas Apartment Association lease contract and application form. If you have leased before, it is likely just the newest version of what you previously signed. Applications are processed via a secure online site. If you are interested in a unit, we can schedule a time for you to view the unit. If you decide to lease, then we will sit down with you and complete the application and lease paperwork. Your application fees and deposit will be due at time of lease signing. Your prorated 1st month’s rent and any pet addendum deposits can be paid when you pick up your keys at move-in time.

We have a written qualification policy that covers whether or not you will need a guarantor. Unless you have been gainfully employed for two years, you will likely need a lease guarantor. That form can be downloaded and faxed in by your guarantor, so they do not have to attend the lease signing in person. If they are interested in attending, they are more than welcome as they will become party to the lease.

Once your paperwork is completed, it will be processed by the property management personnel. They will notify you when the paperwork is completed and approved.

If you want more details on the TAA lease, you can check their website at www.taa.org and search for “TAA Lease Contract Overview Video” which is an instructional video overview of the lease.

If you cannot make it in town in person to fill out the paperwork, please check the FAQ for: What do I need to do if I’m completing a lease packet by mail?

If you already signed a lease and want to know more about the move-in process, please see the FAQ: I preleased earlier, how do I get my key at move-in time?

If you have any additional questions, please see the FAQ: What if I have a question that is not already answered here?

Thank you.

Is this a whole apartment or is this more than one room with roommates?2020-03-13T00:19:35+00:00

The pricing is listed as per unit, not per bedroom. We do not lease per bedroom and just stick you pot-luck with a roommate. Our units are only leased whole. If you want a roommate, then you choose that person. Otherwise, you can probably afford the rent on your own anyway so why bother.

Is the monthly rental rate per person or per unit?2015-05-23T08:28:11+00:00

The rate shown is per unit, not per bedroom. Yes, it’s that affordable. Lucky for you we got a good deal on the place.

Is this on a TAMU Shuttle Bus route?2015-05-23T08:10:31+00:00

Yes, the closest location is less than a block away, close to the corner of Holleman and Anderson. It’s on the Anderson St. side of Anderson Park. As of this update, it’s TAMU Shuttle Route 28 – Rudder.

For more information see: http://transport.tamu.edu > Transit > Off-Campus Routes > Route Maps

I preleased earlier, how do I get my key at move-in time?2020-02-13T15:23:08+00:00

You will receive your key(s) and move-in packet the day of.

Are the Tennis Courts at Bee Creek Park free?2015-05-23T08:08:28+00:00

Yes, I believe they are free. For more information please visit the City of College Station website at www.cstx.gov.

When is my rent due?2015-05-23T08:07:57+00:00

Your rent is due on or before the 1st of the month. This is true even when the 1st falls on a Sunday or holiday, so please plan in advance.

Can I have someone else sign the lease for me?2015-05-23T08:07:28+00:00

Sorry, no. The prospective tenant must sign the lease themselves to be a legally binding TAA lease contract. This is a requirement for our leases.

I have rented a unit, what is my new mailing address?2015-05-23T08:06:47+00:00

Your mailing address would be:

<your name>
1402 Holleman Dr. #<unit number>
College Station, TX 77840

What do I need to do if I’m completing a lease packet by mail?2020-02-13T15:20:55+00:00

Everything is done electronically so there’s no need to mail us your lease packet.

How do I request general maintenance and repairs?2015-05-23T08:02:58+00:00

There are two ways to request routine maintenance/repairs to your unit:

  1. Submit a request in writing by dropping it off at the same location as your rent: 

    Holleman by the Park
    1511 Texas Ave. S. #175
    College Station, TX 77840 
     

  2. Use the online Maintenance Form on the website:
         http://hollemanbythepark.com/Maintenance

    Please be sure to make a complete list for our maintenance staff so that we can minimize the number of times we have to enter your unit.

 

Do you rent the 2 bedroom units by the bedroom?2020-03-13T00:19:36+00:00

In short, no. We don’t lease these by the room. Many of our 2 bedroom units are leased by a single person who just wants an extra bedroom to use as an office.

The more important question may be, do you want to rent by the bedroom? Many prospective resident like the idea of renting by the bedroom until they fully consider the ramifications. If you rent by the bedroom, then you are handing over responsibility of that room, for better and worse. This means that it’s not your money, but it’s also not your decision. So instead of finding a roommate and going in together with someone you mutually agree on, you would be stuck with whoever we decide to put in there. So with lack of responsibility also comes lack of choice. Something to think about before you jump off into that kind of living arrangement.

If you decide that’s the only way to go for you, then we’re not your place. Good luck!

What if I have a question that is not already answered here?2015-05-23T07:59:01+00:00

If you have a question that is not currently answered on our website, please use the contact us area of the website to request more information. We look forward to helping you.

How do I request EMERGENCY maintenance?2015-05-23T07:56:29+00:00
