Verandas Apartments’ utility charges are based on whether you live in a one, two, or three bedroom apartment home. One bedroom apartment homes have a monthly charge of $65. ($60 for water/sewer and $5 for garbage). Our two bedroom apartment homes have a monthly charge of $75. ($68 for water/sewer and $7 for garbage.) Our three bedroom Hillsboro apartments have a monthly charge of $85. ($75 for water/sewer and $10 for garbage.) We happily cover all recycling charges! These amounts are not included in the stated rent. Residents are responsible for setting up their own Portland General Electric (PGE) account, which is required before taking possession of the apartment, and pay them directly.
Residents are approved with either a $350 deposit or an amount equal to one month’s rent. This is determined after our third party vendor reviews your rental history, credit check, and criminal background check. *Security deposit amounts are subject to change at any time without notice.
As soon as possible! The second you submit your application, proof of income, identification, and pay your application fee(s), your application gets sent to our third party screening company to review. This process rarely takes longer than 24 hours. We’ll call or email you with the outcome as soon as we’re notified so we can keep the apartment rental process moving!
We review applicants and their need for a co-signer on an as-needed basis. Inquire with the leasing office for more details.
Of course! All residents have the option to add or remove roommates during their stay with us. All changes regarding occupants must meet occupancy guidelines and all new roommates 18 years of age or older must apply, pay all necessarily application fees, be approved, and be added to the lease before moving into the community.
For your convenience, we accept online payments! Pay your rent for free with an e-check, use a debit card for a small fee, or use Visa, MasterCard, or American Express for a fee dictated by those companies. Paying online allows you to pay any time, anywhere!
We offer a variety of parking options to satisfy your needs! All of our community is open parking with a select few spots reserved specifically for guest parking. If you’re interested in a reserved space, we offer carports on a month to month basis for $25 and garages on a month to month basis for $100. *Prices change regularly.

Absolutely! Word of mouth referrals are the best compliments we can receive! For each future resident a non-resident refers to our Hillsboro apartments, we’ll cut them a $200 check. Residents will receive a $200 rent credit for each referral made. The check or rent credit is issued once the referral has moved in. They just have to list your name upon first contact with us, that way you get the credit for the referral! We’ll then contact you for additional information on where to send the check. Plain and simple! The best parts of our program:
  • There’s no limit to the amount you can receive.
  • You don’t have to be a current resident to participate in the program.
  • You can refer a future resident to any of the communities managed by property management company Tandem Property Management, Inc., and earn the referral check! For a complete list of qualifying communities, click on the link.
