What are FLEX Payments?

FLEX Payments are an alternative way for residents to split their monthly rent payments into two payments on the 1st and the 15th of the month. This flexibility helps our residents better align payments with their financial schedule, reducing the risk of late fees and offering more control over their monthly budget.


What is FLEX Leasing?

​Flexible leasing allows our residents to enjoy the freedom of adaptability regarding life changes. No lease end date, shorter notice requirements, and hassle-free transition for every life stage. Be sure to obtain additional information from the property staff, as there is limited availability.


What is Renter’s Insurance?

Renters insurance provides coverage for damage or other incidents to the apartment home. TLC requires all residents to obtain renters insurance either through their community or through a third party if personal property coverage is needed. If obtained through a TLC community, it will be a liability policy only.


Can I sublet my apartment home?

Subletting is not allowed at any point during your lease, this includes Airbnb, VRBO, or any similar platform.

Is parking included?

​Parking is open to you and your guests on a first-come, first-serve basis. Upon reservation, covered and/or reserved parking may be available in your community. This can be clarified with the property staff.

How are maintenance issues handled when the office is closed?

We offer on-call maintenance for emergencies outside office hours, please call (417) 851-1747.

Is your community pet-friendly?

​Absolutely! We require a one-time pet fee of $300 per pet due at move-in or when the pet comes to live at the apartment home. We do not require pet rent and have no size, weight, or breed restrictions. TLC Properties only allows up to three pets per apartment home.
