THE APPLICATION FEE IS $55 PER OCCUPANT 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. APPLICATION FEES ARE NON REFUNDABLE.

PETSCREENING IS A REQUIRED PART OF THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR ALL APPLICANTS:

A welcoming environment is paramount to all our residents with or without pets as well as animals. To help ensure ALL our residents understand our pet and animal-related policies, we use a third-party screening service and require EVERYONE to complete a profile. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and more accurate records to create greater mutual accountability. If you need accommodation in another way, please contact your housing provider.

Our current pet policies include a one-time non-refundable pet fee of $250 / pet, and pet rent of $60-$80 / pet / month depending on pet(s), of which $30 per month shall be applied to a pet administrative fee. Each individual property owner has the right to deny an applicant based upon the number, type, size, age, or breed of pet. Restricted Breeds include Pitbull’s, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Boxers, Doberman Pinschers, and Mastiffs. **Does not apply for Assistive Animals**

Please verify with the property manager that the property you are applying for is available to rent and does not currently have an accepted application in process.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO CONSIDER APPLICATIONS ON A HOME UNTIL THERE IS AN APPROVED APPLICANT WHO HAS PAID THE EARNEST MONEY.

In addition to this rental application, applicants must provide a copy of a valid form of identification, proof of income, and rental or residency references. All applications will be considered and accepted until an applicant is approved and earnest money has been paid.

Earnest Money Deposit

If applicant qualifies and is approved to rent the property, a minimum earnest deposit of 1 month’s rent will be required to secure the home for a maximum of 30 days.
