You are able to set up a one-time payment or recurring payments.  You can also, see your individual account, track payments, see lease agreements and submit work orders.


Where do I get my mail?
Your mailbox is located in the main lobby of the building.  Larger packages are usually dropped off at the management office within the building.   This is contingent upon the parcel delivery company policies and the delivery instructions.   


Are there apartment inspections?
There may be periodic inspections which will be announced prior to inspections. These inspections are to determine any damages in the apartment. Often quarterly, filter changes and alarm equipment testing may be coordinated during this time as well to minimize disturbance. If damage beyond normal wear and tear is found there will be charges assessed. Also, each month, units are exterminated by a professional extermination company. Devonshire’s policy is to be aggressive on extermination in order to prevent issues.  We do not believe in waiting until an issue occurs.  Consequently, if the exterminator flags units that are not maintaining a certain level of sanitary protocol then we will take measures to bring those units into compliance.


What kind of rules are there?
Our Rules and Regulations are governed by the Chicago Landlord and Tenant Ordinance.  Our community rules and guidelines are clearly outlined in our lease documents. Please ask us if you would like a copy of this document sent to you before you apply.


Do you have insurance if my apartment is in a fire, flood, or other natural disasters?
Personal damages are not covered under apartment lease agreements. Apartment managers or the management company are not liable to residents or guests for personal injury or damage or loss of property (including vehicles) from theft, vandalism, fire, smoke, rain, flood, hail, water leaks, ice, snow, lightening, wind, explosion, or surges or interruption of the utility service, except to the extent that such injury or damage was caused by the management negligence. We strongly recommend that all residents purchase renters insurance from their local agency to cover any losses from such causes. This normally is relatively inexpensive (as low as $30/month), and can be found locally as well as nationally.  You can contact your management office for more information.
