The Spanish Trace Apartments Parents FAQ

What should I know before my son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?

A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the remainder of the lease agreement.

What deposits are required?

The deposits are $250.00 for a 1 bedroom/1 bath, $350.00 for a 2 bedroom/1 bath and $450.00 deposit for a 3 bedroom/2 bath unit. Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are completed with no damages to apartment or furnishings. Deposits could be higher if you cannot get a guarantor.

Is renters insurance required?

No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can purchase to protect your personal property as the management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants. Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen could be covered. TCC doesn’t not promote any specific insurance coverage company to use.

What type of apartments are available?

Spanish Trace Apartments offers 1, 2, and 3 bedroom floor plans. With six different options to choose from, ask your leasing specialist which floor plan may work best for you based on what you are looking for in your new apartment home.

How close is the community the UF campus?

Located directly across from Butler Plaza, we are only one mile from the University of Florida, Shands and the VA Hospital. Residents can enjoy the convenience of a bus stop located just outside the property, as well.

What is your pet policy?

We are pet friendly with no breed restrictions up to 80 lbs. The pet fee ranges from $250-$350, and pet rent ranges from $25-45. Both pet fee and pet rent are dependent upon the age and weight of your pet.

When is rent due?

Rent is due on the 1st of each month and will be considered late on the 4th. There are late fees of $50.00 on the 4th and $10.00 each day after until paid in full. If rent is not paid by the 15th, the unpaid amount will be sent to collections.

Online rental payments through Rent Cafe can be automatically set up once the resident has moved in and the set up codes have been supplied to the resident from the office staff.

Do you allow short-term leases?

We have a very limited number of off-season leases ending in December and May, and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Do you allowing subletting?

Yes. However, the resident will be responsible for finding his/her own sublet. Once someone has agreed to take over the lease, both parties will work with the leasing team to complete any necessary paperwork.

Do you allow co-ed apartments?

Yes.

Do you allow non-students?

Yes, if a new resident does not attend school and meets all our approval criteria, he/she can also live at Spanish Trace Apartments.

What if my child doesn’t get along with his/her new roommates?

We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.

Do I have to pay for parking?

Parking is free and on a first come, first served basis. Residents and their guests can park anywhere within the community.

Does Spanish Trace Apartments provide security?

We have a Gainesville Police Department courtesy officer who lives on site. We take every effort to be a safe community. We also have a neighborhood watch meeting each month. However, it is the resident’s responsibility to lock up his/her personal belongings and vehicles.
