Applications are not processed on a first come, first served basis. All applications received will be processed concurrently, and from them we will select the best qualified candidate. Application fees are nonrefundable. If you turn in an incomplete application, it will not be processed until it is completed AND received with the applicable fee for each applicant. Turning in a completed application without paying the required application fees will result in the application not being processed.
Applicant(s) understands we do not accept cosigners.
Applicants desiring to live together as a single housekeeping unit may qualify for tenancy as a group, in which case the owner or agent has the right to immediately terminate the rental contract (lease) when any one member of that group vacates the property.
Applicant agrees that all credit information maintained by owner or agent may be given to any credit reporting service or other agencies authorized to obtain it. Applicant hereby certifies that the information given in this application is true and correct and that any false information given will be sufficient grounds for termination and eviction.
When processing an application, we check credit, background, employment/income, and landlord references. We reserve the right to decline an application if negative conditions are identified during the screening process.
Submitting an application will not hold a property for the applicant. Applications in process do not create a "hold" on the property. Please ensure information is accurate; references or employers not getting back to us can allow a competing application submitted after yours to be completely processed before yours.
If approved, the lease must be signed and all fees, deposits, and first month's rent must be paid with certified funds within 48 hours of notification of approval.
