Tenants Q & A

Since we manage homes for hundreds of different homeowners, each homeowner may have a somewhat different standard for tenant selection. Generally, owners consider the following factors:

  • Satisfactory credit history
  • Monthly income about three times the monthly rental amount
  • No outstanding judgments
  • No past rental evictions
  • Established history of credit since a past bankruptcy
  • Employment verification
  • Criminal record check
  • Present and former landlord references

All properties are offered subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act which makes it illegal to advertise any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, country of national origin, handicap, or familial status.

There is no charge for our leasing staff to help you to find a home. If you decide to submit an application to rent one of our properties, there is a $45 charge for the credit and application background check.

First month’s rent, plus a security deposit equal to one month’s rent, and, if applicable, a pet deposit.

At the time of submitting an application for tenancy, you may request any exception that you want the owner to consider. Sometimes, but not always, an owner may reconsider their requirements after reviewing your pet’s verifiable history, or a large pet deposit, to cover possible damages. Pet restrictions do not apply to assistive living animals.

No property owners will approve an occupancy for the following breeds of dogs:

  • Rotweillers
  • Pitbulls
  • Dobermans
  • Chows
  • German Shepherds

You will be required to sign a statement attesting to the fact that your pet has no history nor any known incident of showing a threatening posture towards people.

No, not with just a deposit. Owners may be willing to hold a home for about 7 to 10 days after the posted availability date, and then they require that rent payments start.

Tenants are required to give a 30-day notice of their intentions to move, so we seldom know beyond 30 days which specific homes are going to be available for rent. Since we property manage many hundreds of homes, there are usually several choices of rental properties available. These homes are updated on our website on a daily basis, so you may want to bookmark our site and visit often as the time gets closer for you to select a rental home.

Many homes are occupied and appointments will be needed to see the inside of the property. You may drive by the property however, the current occupant is advised not to allow any prospective tenant access to their home without an appointment being made by our leasing staff. Our leasing staff is available 7 days a week to accommodate you.

Our home site is updated on a daily basis while we update the other community databases less frequently. If a property is not listed on our home site, it is because it just rented. Also, we list new properties on our home-site first.
