(this fee is required to be paid in order to submit your application with a major credit card)

RENTAL APPLICATION CRITERIA AND PROCEDURES

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of the U. S. Policy for the achievement of Equal Housing Opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support a program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

All applicants must see the interior of the property before a lease can be submitted. The property must be accepted in an AS IS condition before an application can be accepted, except where there is written agreement for repairs with the owner. If so, that agreement will become part of the lease.  Verbal representations are non-binding.

Processing Time Frame:

Processing an application normally takes between 2-3 days.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, some applications may take longer.  You will be contacted immediately upon determination of approval or denial.  Upon approval, you will have 48 hours to complete all lease requirements for the property for which the application is submitted.

Application Requirements:

  1. Applicant understands and agrees that multiple applications may be taken by Landlord or Management for the same property and Landlord or Management may approve who they wish even if multiple applicants apply.
  2. Every line of the application must be filled out and the application signed by the applicant. NO APPLICATION WILL BE PROCESSED THAT IS NOT FULLY COMPLETED AND SIGNED.

Procedures and Policies:

  1. No properties are held for more than two (2) weeks unless approved by the owner.

The number of vehicles must be in compliance with the guidelines established by the city, other local government entities, or promulgated by the covenants and restrictions to the applicable residence.  Many communities including condominium and townhome development explicitly allow for only two cars per households. The same guideline applies for townhomes with one car garage.  Two car garages typically restrict residents to three (3) cars per household, wherein two cars must first be inside the garage before the third can occupy the driveway.
  7. Due to the perceived and real liability with recreational devices such as trampolines and children's slides, most insurance companies are excluding coverage to policy holders with said devices.
