Processing: Applications are processed in the order in which they are received. Most property management companies will process and complete the report within 24 hours. This can be longer if a complication arises such as difficulties contacting your past landlords. It is typical that properties will require a review your credit and criminal background report, verify your employment or income, and check with any current and past landlords you have rented from. As your representative, we must act in their your best interests and will mediate for your interest. If someone has already applied for a property we suggest a search for new properties. The minimum screening procedure most companies do includes employment, income, credit check, and landlord references.
Qualifying: All applicants must meet credit and Landlord guidelines for occupancy must have good landlord references unless applicant has just sold his or her home. References must be for six months or more within the last 18 months, to be considered with good credit. Relatives are not acceptable as rental references. A felony on your record is an automatic decline.

Unemployment is not considered for qualifying.

Approval: After an application is approved, the property management company will contact the applicant within three days and set up a lease signing appointment (any other applications on the same property will be held). If no deposit has been received within 24 hours of approval, the property will return to available status and any other application on file will be considered. Some properties require an upfront deposit, ask your agent for all fees required.
Usually applicants can pick up the keys 3 days prior to move in. Rent is due on the 1st of each month. Rent is late at Noon on the 4th of each month, no exceptions. A late fee of $175.00 will be due on the 4th plus $10.00 for each additional day until rent is paid. this is only an example you will have an opportunity to view the lease contract prior to signing which will show your all requirements.
An applicant can be automatically disqualified if:
any of the applicants have ever been evicted.
there is any money owed to a previous or current landlord for any reason (and restitution has not been made).
any of the applicants are in the process of declaring bankruptcy, and the filing and judgments are not finalized.
