See this article, section for qualifications   Before you can step through the door of your prospective residence, you'll need to navigate the intricate path of the rental application process. This critical phase serves as a bridge between your aspirations and the reality of becoming a tenant, ensuring a clear understanding of expectations and responsibilities on both sides. 

How Do I Pay?

Who Fills Out the Application? 

Anyone who is 18 or older has to fill out an application. 

What does your application procedure include? 

A national credit and background check, current employee / income verification, several years past rental history including eviction search, a proven proprietary method for generating honest responses to open ended questions regarding the tenant's situation, and payment of application fee 

Alternatives if you do not have a driver’s license/passport: 

I-9 or I-94 Forms, Visa Documentation, etc

Alternative for (SSN): 

Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), on rental application put this on the line stating: “other identifying information” 

I have poor credit? What are the requirements, will this stop my application from being accepted? 

How much is the application fee? 

$79 and it includes a background check and income verification in instances where simple 3rd party verification isn't available.  

Can I receive a refund for my application fee if I do not get approved or moved to the next step of the process? 

Application Fees are non-refundable from the time they are submitted, and we submit fraudulent chargebacks to collections with clear evidence.

How long does it take to process my rental application? 

If you need a particularly quick response, note this in your application and we will set a 24-hour time limit for the owner to either accept or we will decline and move on. 

What is required initially after receiving conditional application acceptance? 

  1. Submit a list of upgrades and repair requests – Upgrades, and note broken items  

  1. Pay first month's rent/ Hold payment – Must be paid within 24 hours of application acceptance to secure property
