Before you fill out the attached application, there are several items that should be explained so that you plainly understand the procedures and fees pertaining to this application.
1.) We charge all applicants a non-refundable $50.00 fee for performing a credit report on them. This must be given to us in the form of a money order and will not be returned whether you are accepted or denied. This money order is to be made payable as directed by your leasing agent.
2.) Once you complete the application you are required to leave a $100 deposit in order for us to process your application. This also must be in the form of a money order. It must be a separate check from the application fee and also made payable as directed by your leasing agent. (If and when you are accepted this $100 will be added to your Security Deposit. The Security Deposit ranges from $500 to one and a half times of the rent).
***IF YOU, FOR ANY REASON, DECIDE TO CANCEL YOUR APPLICATION AFTER YOU HAVE GIVEN US THE $100.00 DEPOSIT, YOU WILL FORFEIT THE ENTIRE DEPOSIT. THEREFORE, BE SURE THAT YOU WANT THE TOWNHOME BEFORE YOU GIVE US THE $100.00 DEPOSIT.
3.) Once you place the deposit with us, we will process the application. Once we receive the FULL Security Deposit, we will hold a specific apartment on your behalf. Up until the time we receive a FULL Security Deposit we reserve the right to change the apartment to a comparable one. WE WILL NOT HOLD THE TOWNHOME FOR LONGER THAN ONE (1) WEEK. (The Security Deposit ranges from $500 to one and a half times of the rent)
4.) All money paid up to the time of and including the move-in MUST be in the format of a Money Order. Once you move in, monthly rental payments may be made by personal check.

6.) Within this application, there is also a landlord verification section. This section NEEDS to be filled up as accurately as possible with the information from the landlords that you had over the last 3 years.
7.) We will make every effort to give you an answer as to whether or not your application has been approved within 48 hours of receiving ALL of the information that was requested of you.

Once you have been accepted for the home, you must do the following:

b. Contact all utility companies to put the meters in your name, i.e. Electric, Gas, Cable TV, Phone, etc. Failure to turn the appropriate utilities into your name once you have moved into the apartment will result in the utility being shut off.

IMPORTANT: YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNTIL ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION IS RECEIVED.
9.) Within three (3) days of being accepted, you must pay the balance of the security deposit in the form of a money order. Until the full security deposit is paid, we will not guarantee a specific apartment. We will not hold an "open/approved" deposit for more than five (5) days without a full security deposit. Thus, if after five (5) days from the date of approval, we still only have a partial security deposit, we will not guarantee that we will have an apartment available for your specific time frame that meets your specific requirements.
10.) If applicant chooses to terminate this application once it has been approved, all monies will be forfeited.
