General Leasing Questions

How are roommates matched?

We offer a roommate matching program for those who have not already pre-selected their roommate(s).


What if I need to cancel my lease?

With the exception of joining the military, we do not offer a lease termination clause in the lease. The resident is responsible for the entire lease contract. Cavalier Crossing does allow residents to transfer their lease agreement for a fee of $500 and with proper authorization from the management staff.

Will you send me a monthly bill for rent?

No, we do not send monthly invoices. However, we do offer automatic payments to help you not forget to make your monthly rental installment.

What types of leases are available?

We offer 12-month, 10-month ($50 premium each month), and 5-month ($125 premium each month).

Can additional furniture be brought into the apartment?

All of our apartment homes are very spacious and provide a lot of room for you to bring personal furniture items. All Cavalier Crossing furniture must stay within your apartment so make sure to plan your decorating before arriving.

If I'm over 21, do I still need a guarantor?

Yes. All leases are required to have a guarantor. If an approved guarantor cannot be obtained, Greystar will accept a security deposit of one and one half (1.5) installment of rent.

When I go to pay my rent, why does my balance due say $0?

We charge rent on the first of every month. You can still make a payment before the first, and will show as a credit until rent is charged.

When does my lease start?

We offer immediate move-in’s and our Fall 2021 start date is 8/21/2021

Are there home essentials included, such as pots and pans?

Although we offer fully furnished apartment homes, you will want to bring dishes, pots and pans, etc.

What size are the beds?

Each bedroom contains a comfortable full-size bed.

When is my first rental installment due?

The 15th of the month prior to your lease start date.

How close are you to campus?

Cavalier Crossing is an 8 minute drive to both Piedmont Virginia Community College and The University of Virginia.

What types of apartments are available?

We offer two different fully furnished floor plans: 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom and 4 bedroom / 4 bathroom.

How are rooms assigned?

Residents who already have preferred roommates can confirm their roommate match requests using our roommate matching platform. If you do not have a roommate in mind at the time of your application, we are happy to help assist you in finding the right match through roommate matching. Residents will be able to communicate with each other during and after the selection process. In the event that potential roommates discover that they are no longer compatible, they can request a different roommate and we will do our best to accommodate any change request. To provide sufficient time and the greatest opportunity for residents to find the perfect roommate, they should apply and sign a lease as early as possible.
