We prefer to discuss current rent amounts over the phone. Feel free to contact us to inquire about any house you are interested in.
Once your group has been approved, an application deposit is required to begin the process.
If your group is approved the first step is to collect a $400.00 application fee from you. By giving us this fee your group agrees to complete all the necessary paperwork, which includes signing the lease and turning in signed and completed co-signer agreements, within one week (five business days). If your group does not complete all the paperwork within the week allowed you will forfeit your $400.00 deposit and we will proceed with another interested party. Once all the paperwork has been turned in the deposit (minus the $400.00 already paid) will be collected. This will hold the house for you until your lease term begins.
Some pets are allowed subject to approval. Dogs over 25 pounds will not be considered. Pet rent is $20.00 per month per animal. A pet addendum must be completed and signed with the lease.
Co-signers are required for all tenants. An individual renter's insurance policy for each tenant is recommended.
