THE MOVE IN PROCESS
Before we can give you your keys, all monies must be paid in full (by money orders only) to the management office. Your electricity and cooking gas must be turned on in your name. Carefully read your lease agreement and ask any questions you may have regarding this important document. Sign it only when you understand all of your legal responsibilities. Carefully read and sign all other required documents.
On your move in day, you will be greeted by a Benjamin H. Realty Corp. representative. This representative will do a move in inspection to make sure your apartment is in acceptable condition. Carefully check the condition of your apartment. Notify the management office of any problems or defects immediately as this will protect you in case problems are found after you move out.
Rent is due on the first day of each month and there will be a 5 day grace period. Your rent (in money order or check form only) can be mailed to the office at 7 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 308, East Orange, NJ, 07017 or you can stop by the office and the administrative assistant at the front window will gladly accept your payment and write you a dated receipt.

Protecting your property and guarding your personal liability is sometimes overlooked, but it’s an important part of apartment living. Renter’s insurance is more affordable than you think. For a very modest premium you can protect your possessions and personal property, you can protect yourself against personal liability and you can obtain assistance if your apartment home is damaged or unlivable. We’re not in the business of selling insurance, but having managed several apartment communities, we strongly urge you to consider renter’s insurance. It’s peace of mind about the future and a safety net if you run into trouble.
