To ensure that all utilities are connected on the day of your move-in, you must make arrangements in advance for the connection of your utilities.

Yes! Damage caused by a resident is usually the financial responsibility of that resident, not the property owner.

Please inform the insurance provider to have The Hive listed on the policy as an “interested party.”
