Scheduling a tour is easy. Simply call or use the handy Schedule a Tour link on the website home page to let us know you'd like to see our community for yourself.

We often have move-in specials available. Check our website or contact us for the latest information regarding move-in specials. 

We check your credit when you apply for an apartment. We do what is called a "soft pull." This should not affect your credit unless you have multiple soft pulls done in a short span of time. If you have a challenging credit history, we will be happy to speak with you about the resources we have which may help you secure housing at our community. 

Once you have submitted all the required materials, we will verify your rental history, credit history, and income. Our approval process usually takes no more than 72 hours. 

We offer short and full-term leases between 3 to 12 months at Lake Nona Water Mark Apartments. Once your original lease expires, we will negotiate a new term and you may renew for the same number of months, a new month-length, or go month-to-month. We will run a credit check and background screening when you apply. You will also need to supply proof of income, a government-issued ID, and other information. 

Yes! You can easily apply online. Just visit our floor plans page to see our available homes, choose the apartment you like, the lease term that works best for you, and follow the steps to start your application. 

You can pay your rent in several different ways at our apartments. Our online resident portal allows you to connect a bank account (ACH), credit card or debit card for automatic payments. Once you've connected your account, you can set up a recurring monthly payment. This will be drafted out of your account or from your card every month on a specific date, so you never have to worry about forgetting your payment! We do not accept payments in the office. Late fees will be added to any payment made after the 5th of the month. It is your responsibility to ensure your auto-draft payment has cleared your financial institution. There are fees associated with Credit and Debit Card payments. These fees are collected by the card processing agencies and do not go to our management company or community. ACH payments are always free. 

When you move in, you'll receive a move-in packet with instructions about how to sign up for and log in to your resident portal. You may also receive an email from our team with instructions about setting up your portal. Your email address and provided Tcode will be used to set up and access your resident portal.

We require 60 days written notice to vacate your lease at Lake Nona Water Mark Apartments, unless you have short-term lease of 3-6 months. In the case of a short-term lease, 30 days notice will suffice. We do not accept verbal notices, and failure to provide written notice within the allotted timeframe for the term of your lease will result in you being responsible for any rent, late fees, or other related costs until the unit is rented. We have notice forms available in the office for your convenience.

We will send you a reminder 90 days before the end of your lease to offer a renewal. You will also see a reminder on your resident portal that your lease is due to renew soon. You may call or drop by the office to discuss renewing your lease anytime during regular business hours.
