Application Fee and Timeline

Our Application Fee is $30.00 per applicant. This fee will be due when you turn in the application. Every part of the application should be answered completely. We generally need 3-5 business days to process the information you provide. Delays may be caused by the unavailability of landlords, employers, etc.

Landlord Verification

Your current and previous landlord will be asked for a rental reference. The application may be denied if a positive rental reference cannot be received.

Income Verification

Applicants will need to verify income that exceeds three times the rental amount. Employment can be verified through one month worth of paycheck stubs for each applicant. We may contact your employer to verify your employment and an applicant may need to complete a release so that the employer may provide information to our office.

If you are self-employed a copy of your tax return for the prior year will be required to verify income.

Income from any other source may be accepted if it can be verified. If we have difficulties with income verification, it is your responsibility to provide that verification.

Credit History

We will contact the local Credit Bureau to review your personal credit history. Your application can be refused if your credit report shows a history of unpaid judgments, liens, charge-offs, repossessions, or repeated late payments. You are entitled to a copy of the report.

Leasing Requirements

Once your application has been approved, you will be forwarded our Residential Lease Agreement by Docusign. You (and all parties over the age of 18 with you) will need to immediately sign the forms. Once we have notice of the executed lease, a portal on our website will be opened for you to pay your security deposit, which must be received within 24 hours of lease signing. The property is not considered rented to until the lease is signed and deposit paid in full. If you delay any of the above steps the property could be rented to someone else. If you do not have access to a computer, please let us know so we can make other arrangements for you to sign the lease. If you fail to fulfill your commitment to move into the property, all terms of the lease shall apply including your payment of a re-lease fee and the rent until a new replacement tenant can be found.
