Approval Process

Approvals are based on: credit, background check, income/time on the job, and rental verification from previous landlords. The following items can cause your application to be declined or may require additional requirements in order to get an approval:

  • Student loans in delinquent status
  • Back child support
  • Bad rental history such as: eviction, broken leases, or owing previous landlords
  • Credit check and Background check

If your application is approved, you will need to bring the security deposit in certified funds in order for the property to be held for you, for up to two weeks. Once the security deposit is receipted, you will set up your lease signing date, and will pay the first month’s rent on that day. The second months’ rent will be pro-rated. The security deposit will be retained for liquidated damages, even if you have not seen the property yet. If you change your mind or fail to sign your lease within a 2 week period, you will not receive the deposit back.
