We are looking for basic criteria in prospective tenants as a basis for your approval. With your help we will do everything we can to try to get you approved but there are cases where that may not happen. The more information you can provide us the better the chances are we will be able to work with you.
What you need to provide on your application to help you get approved:
Following are issues that may cause your application to be denied or co-signers required:
Help yourself & us - Be honest on your application and explain issues in detail.
(The items above are basic criteria and do not represent all examples.)
Is there an application fee & background check?
Yes - A $100 application fee is required. All application fees are Non-Refundable. If your application is approved, the application fee will be applied to your deposit. Background checks are required.
What if my roommate does not pay rent?
When 2 (or more) parties enter into a lease, they become both jointly AND severally liable, meaning that the full amount will be auto-deducted on the due date and the rent is 100% collectible from one or all parties. It is up to roommates to decide how much they should pay jointly and it does not matter as long as the rent is set up to be auto-deducted the 1st of each month.
If one roommate pays half and the other(s) do not pay, the delinquent amount is collectible from ALL parties, including the roommate that has already paid half.
Do you have any special lease offers?
If you sign a 24 month lease - you receive your 25th month's rent free.
