Renters Frequently Asked Questions

Q: "How much is the deposit?"
A: We typically require 1 month’s rent, but it depends on the owner of the property. In some homes, the security deposits can be ½ month's rent. This information will be displayed on the “Properties for Rent” page on this website.

Q: "How much is the application fee?"
A: The application fee is $25 per adult over the age of 18.

Q: "Do you check our credit?"
A: We not only pull your credit report but we check your criminal background as well. You cannot have any money owed to an electric company or landlord for any reason because it results in your application being automatically denied.

Q: "Do you check criminal background?"
A: Yes, we conduct a crimal background check going back at least 5 years.

Q: "Do I have to sign a 12 month lease?"
A: Yes, we only offer 12 month leases without exception.

Q: "Can I paint the place I rent?"
A: We do allow people to paint their units as long as we approve the color in writing. The resident understands that the walls have to be painted back to the original color upon move-out. No bright or very dark colors are allowed because it takes 3 to 4 coats to paint over it.

Q: "What happens if I am late with the rent?"
A: Rent is due on the 1st of the month and late on the 5th of the month at 5:00pm. There is a $50 late fee after the 5th without exception.

Q: "What is your pet policy?"
A: We usually do allow pets with the exception of aggressive breeds such as Dobermans, Rottweilers, or Pit Bulls. There is a $200 Pet Fee (one time only) required. Some owners do not allow any pets. The pet policy will be displayed for each property in the “Properties for Rent” section of this website. If there is a question on breeds you can call and ask us.
