2.  State-issued driver's license and social security card must be photocopied when the application(s) are submitted.

6. The Application must be signed by all applicants.  We can hold a property for an approved applicant for 10 business days after the applicant pays the Security Deposit.


Income is to be 3 times the amount of the rent of the property applicants are applying to rent.  Applicants must provide the last 2 months of pay stubs. Documentation for any other income (SSI, child support) must also be provided.  Unemployment income is not considered.  Self-employed applicants must furnish a copy of their Schedule C from their last tax return or furnish a copy of the last 6 months’ bank statements, verifying monthly income of 3 times the rent amount.

Criminal Background

Any criminal offense which has taken place within the last 7 years, will result in a denial.  If there is a criminal conviction and the applicant has been out of jail/prison less than 5 years, they will be denied.  If the criminal offense was of a physical or violent nature against either person or property, the applicant will be denied.  If the criminal offense took place more than 10 years ago, or if the person has been out of jail/prison more than 5 years and has perfect credit and rental history, they may be approved (provided this was a one-time offense and was not of a physical or violent nature).  Multiple offenders will be denied no matter what the credit and rental history shows.

Security Deposits

The tenant’s security deposit will NOT be refunded unless the tenant completes the full term of the lease and meets all other conditions of the lease.

A $350.00 non-refundable fee is required for each animal.  This applies to all inside and outside pets.  There is a monthly pet rent of $25.00 per animal.  No Pit Bull, Rottweiler or Doberman Pinscher dogs are allowed, even if they are registered.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  Fee is waived for applicants providing a medical letter stating that the “pet” is, in fact, a medically prescribed assistant or companion service animal.  Applicant remains responsible for damage done by ANY animal brought onto the property.
