Rental Applicant FAQ’s
Can I apply online?
Yes, you can! You can fill out your rental application online by selecting one of our homes, and by clicking on “Apply Online”. You can also pay the $40 fee online but you will need to fax/scan in proof of income and a copy of your drivers license to complete the process.
What does my credit have to look like to qualify?
This will depend on your income, rental history and the details of the score.
I may not qualify. Can I apply with a co-signor who will not live with me or pay an additional deposit?
Yes, if the approval is” conditional” an additional month or having someone co-sign with you often improves the chance that your application will be approved. However, the co-signor must be approved seperately, and must be able to afford the cost of the rental and their current home at the same time. The co-signor must also realize that they will be just as financially responsible as you are for any damages, rents, fees, and other charges for the entire time you live there, unless we determine (in writing) that you can handle the rental on your own.
Am I allowed to have a pet?
Many of our homes do allow pets. Ask your Property Manager what the policy for the owner of your home of interest. If your pet is allowed you will be required to pay the pet fee of $250 of which $100 will be non-refundable.
What is renter’s insurance and do you provide it?
Many tenants believe they are covered by our insurance if something happens to their belongings, if someone is injured, or if they cause damage or injury to someone else on the property. The truth is your belongings are not covered, so you we strongly suggest you get renters insurance to protect yourself
What do I have to do before I can move in?
Before we can give you your keys, all of the following must be done:
• All monies must be paid in full (by cash, certified check or money orders only)
• Your electricity and other utilities must be turned on in your name.
• Carefully read your lease agreement and ask any questions you may have regarding this important document. Sign it only when you understand all of your legal responsibilities.
• Carefully read and sign all other required documents.
• Once you do move in, be sure you have completed your move in inspection report and be sure to report to the Rental Office any problems or defects immediately. This will protect you in case problems are found after you move out.
