Rental housing is very limited in Weston and in high demand. For the subsidized units the wait can be 3 - 6 years, due to the number of applicants on the wait list. Income qualifications for these apartments follow current HUD Income Limits.
The wait list for the market rent units is shorter with immediate occupancy occasionally available. An application is necessary for either type of apartment. One month’s rent and a security deposit are required upon occupancy.
The rent includes heat and hot water. Each tenant is responsible for paying his / her own electric, cable and phone bill.
