Processing your Application - We begin processing applications immediately, and we strive to complete them within 24-48 hours (1-2 business days). Incomplete applications are subject to denial. If we are not able to complete your application because we are unable to get a response from your current and/or previous landlord or your current employer or reference within 2 business days we reserve the right to deny your application. If we are unable to reach you within 2 business days at any time during the application process we may deny your application and move on to the next in line.
Rental References - Please note: after your application is received and screened, if we are unable to contact or get a reply from your previous landlords within 2 business days it may result in a denial and we will move on to the next application. To ensure the best chances at getting approved, please assist by letting your rental references know that we will need a timely response when we request the references.
Upon Approval – You will have 2 business days after you are approved to submit funds for your security deposit (deposit to hold the unit). We can only hold a vacant unit for 1 week with the deposit before rent will be due.
- Prior to receiving keys, we will need certified funds (money order or cashier’s check) – one for your first month’s rent amount and another for your security deposit.
- Please note that mailbox keys are tenants’ responsibility
