Our Application Screening Process

Applications can be submitted by completing the application provided by the Property Manager and returning it to our office along with two checks or money orders. Include one check or money order for the Application Fee and a second one for the Holding Deposit.

Because it costs us time and money to process your application for each adult resident, there is a non-refundable Application Fee of $40 for each person 18 years of age or older or $40 per married couple. This Application Fee is to be paid by check or money order (Cash Is Not Accepted) when the application is delivered to our office. (Note: The Holding Deposit must also to be paid at the time the application is delivered to the office.)

We will accept the first qualified applicant or group of applicants. If the application(s) being processed does not qualify, we will then call the next interested party and process their application(s). If your application(s) is not processed the Application Fee and Holding Deposit will be returned to you.

Please review our list of criteria. If you feel that you meet the criteria, please apply – because we’d be happy to rent to you. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to qualify please speak directly with the Property Manager representing the property you are interested in renting as there may be possible options.

Holding Deposit

A refundable Holding Deposit of a minimum of $200 for the dwelling must be paid by separate check or money order (Cash Is Not Accepted) and must be received when delivering the application to our office. If there are multiple persons applying for the dwelling only one Holding Deposit is due. This deposit will be returned to you if we determine you do not qualify. If you do qualify the Holding Deposit will be deposited and applied toward your security deposit when you sign your lease. If you do qualify and later decide not to take the dwelling we will retain the holding deposit because we will have taken the property off of the market.
