Rental Application

Application Process

 

Once you have selected the home you want, it is necessary to apply to lease the home.  Applications can be picked up at the office, faxed to you or downloaded from this website.

No one under 18 can apply as a party to a residential leasing agreement.  To be considered an application must be completely filled out and have an original signature.  Signatures on faxed copies are accepted.  Our office is open Monday through Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  to answer questions and assist with the application process.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $35 up to 2 applicants.  The fee is to cover our screening and processing cost.  Most applications can be processed in one day.

The screening process includes: rental history including previous landlord references, credit report, public records, and background check.  If the applicant is a homeowner and does not have a prior landlord, a realtor or property manager reference is usually sufficient.  Our property managers can assist applicants in choosing an appropriate reference for their prior living circumstances.

An applicant’s income should be at least three times the rental amount.  As part of the screening process we verify employment references and salary.  For self-employed and non-employment income we verify sources and amounts.  Examples of verification of non-employee income are:  tax returns, bank and business references, government documents.

If approved, applicants with recent bankruptcies and/or credit problems may be required to make advance rent payments.  Please discuss any questions or concerns over credit and/or background requirements with one of our property managers before submitting the application.

Pets are accepted or rejected based on the homeowner’s discretion.  A non-refundable pet deposit of $250 must be paid.  Appropriate pet references may be required.  Prior landlords and/or realtors are examples of appropriate pet references.  As an option, pet rent may be considered in lieu of a deposit.

Once the application is accepted, the applicant must execute a residential leasing agreement within five days.  This can be done in the office.  If the application is accepted, and the applicant does not enter into a residential leasing agreement, the application deposit would be forfeited and the property placed back on the rental market.
