Please read below for our specific screening criteria. We process our applications on a first come, first serve basis. Your application, screening fee, photo ID, verification of income, and all additional documents must be completely submitted in order to be considered. We will refund your screening fee if a previous applicant has been approved.

Application Steps
Applications online can be filled out by visiting our list of RENTAL PROPERTIES.

Processing the Application
Application information needs to be obtained and verified within 48 hours from the time the screening process begins; if your application information cannot be verified within this timeframe, your application will result in a conditional approval or be denied.

The processing of your application will result in 4 possible outcomes:

Your application, screening fee, photo ID, verification of income, and all additional documents must be completely submitted in order to be considered. If the application is approved, applicants will have 24 hours from the time of notification to confirm acceptance of property.

Applicants will have 48 hours from the time of notification to either execute a rental agreement and make all deposits required there under or make a deposit to hold the unit and execute a reservation deposit agreement which will provide for the forfeiture of the deposit if applicants fail to occupy the unit. If applicants fail to timely take the steps required above, they will be deemed to have refused the unit and the next application for the unit will be processed.

If a co-signer is required, a completed co-signer application, screening fee, ID, verification of income, and all additional documents must be completely submitted in order to be considered.

REMOVING OR TAMPERING - It is a violation of law to remove or tamper with a properly functioning smoke detector or alarm, including removing working batteries or non-payment of electrical service which renders the device inoperative. Should the tenant or someone under their control cause the smoke detector to be inoperative the landlord may assess a penalty of $250.00 and/or terminate the rental agreement.
