Helpful Tenant Information


The Columbia Apartment Association (CAA) is a trade association representing the Owner / Management companies of the multifamily industry. We’re not qualified to give you legal advice. If you need legal help for a particular problem you’re having, we encourage you to check with an attorney or look for legal resources in your area that can assist you.

In most instances, resident and landlord disputes are based on provisions contained within a lease agreement. You are encouraged to carefully read, understand, and maintain a copy of your lease. Give special attention to lease paragraphs regarding lease term, rent amount, rent due dates, non-renewal notice, deposits, and maintenance requests.
