Tenant FAQ

What are the important criteria used to qualify for renting a home?

Since we manage homes for different homeowners, each homeowner may have a somewhat different standard for tenant selection. Generally, owners consider the following factors:

  • Satisfactory credit history
  • Monthly income about three times the monthly rental amount
  • No outstanding judgments
  • No past rental evictions
  • Established history of credit since a past bankruptcy
  • Employment verification
  • Criminal record check
  • Present and former landlord references

All properties are offered subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act which makes it illegal to advertise any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, country of national origin, handicap, or familial status.

How much does it cost to use our services?

There is $40 Application Fee.

How much does it cost to move in to a rental home?

First month's rent and a security deposit equal to one month's rent at a minimum. Proof of Renter's Insurance is also required. (Pet deposit if applicable.)

Are pets allowed?

Most properties will allow pets for an additional security deposit that is refundable. Simply ask your leasing professional when inquiring about a particular property.

How long does it take to process my application?

Typically your application will be processed within the same day it is submitted or the next business day.

The home is available for rent now but we will not be able to rent for three months. Will the owner hold the home until we need it if we pay a deposit?

No, not with just a deposit. Owners may be willing to hold a home for a time, but may require that rental payments start.

We will not be moving for a few months, so how can I learn what homes will be available in the future?

Tenants are required to give a 30-day notice of their intentions to move, so we seldom know beyond 30 days which specific homes are going to be available for rent. Since we manage a large number of homes, there are usually several choices of rental properties available. These homes are updated on our website on a regular basis, so you may want to bookmark our site and visit often as the time gets closer for you to select a rental home.

There are some homes that I want to see. How do I arrange to see them?
