Thermostat/Furnace Instructions
Each apartment is equipped with its own thermostat and heating/cooling unit (behind the metal panel), so you have complete control over your apartment’s temperature at all times.  If at any time during your tenancy you think your heat or AC is not working, check the following items:
A.      In the vicinity of the thermostat and heating unit (metal panel) is a switch that controls power to your unit. It must be ON for your unit to function.  At ALL times the switch should be in the ON position. 
B.       Make sure the circuit breaker, located in your electrical panel, is ON. 
 
Telephone Entry System
Your buzzer will require the use of a dial-up phone that can be plugged into the landline outlet, which does not require the purchase of a land-line service. Upon guests entering your unit number, the plugged-in device will then ring. You will need to press the number 9 to allow guest(s) in.

Move-In Instructions
Depending on vehicle types we have recommendations/requirements for unloading. The alleyway located to the left of the building entrance is not available for parking. If you are using cars/smaller trucks, you may pull into the parking garage temporarily with hazard lights on. As for Uhauls/trailers we recommend finding street parking and bringing items through the front entrance or side entrance. Please do not hold the elevator door open, it confuses the sensors and will temporarily shut down. 
 
Trash/Recycling 
Trash and recycling are located on the first floor. Please bring a key, as if the door shuts it automatically locks. There is a large brown double door in the lobby that will lead you to the trash room. Please make sure to always break down boxes and place recyclables in paper bags only. 
 
Sublet
Subletting options are available, with possibilities of either finding a new tenant on your own or with our assistance. With a tenant found subletter there will be a $75 fee. The prospective subletter must complete an application which can be found on our website at http://www.butlerplaza.net/application. Once the application is completed, we will require it to be submitted to us along with a security deposit made payable to the current tenant.
Our team also offers the option of us finding a subletter, with extensive advertising through multiple platforms and scheduling tours. There is a $250 fee, and the current tenant will be responsible for paying rent until the new subletter takes over the lease.
