Q: Is this a low-income community?
A: Yorkshire Place is a subsidized community. This means the rent is based on income. The resident pays approximately 30% of their income as rent & the remainder is paid in the form of a subsidy. If the resident qualifies for subsidy, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a U.S. government agency, will pay the remainder of the rent.
Q: How is rent calculated?
A: Rents are based on 30% of household income. A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your gross annual income & divide it by 12 months.
Q: What is included in the rent?
A: Rental of the apartment for one month, as well as hot water, sewer, and a utility allowance. The amount of the utility allowance is based on the average use of the apartment and may change annually. Residents will still pay for their own utilities, but the allowance is intended to help pay for their cost. Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the state.
Q: Is there a Security Deposit? If so how much is it?
A: There is a security deposit. The security deposit is the same as one month’s rent (before the utility allowance is deducted). This deposit is due in full at the signing of the lease.

A: Yorkshire Place welcomes you to bring your pets along with you. Fish & birds are welcomed without a deposit. We also welcome small dogs and cats with a pet deposit. There is a limit of one cat/dog per unit and there is certain size, breed restrictions.
