Application Process:

  1. Set up a time to tour the rental. We cannot rent to you unless you actually see the place. It is preferred to have all roommates/spouse present so we only have to bother the current tenants once.
  2. Fill out an application.
  3. Provide a photocopy of your I.D.
  4. The application fee ($40 per person) covers the cost of a credit, criminal, and background check.
  5. Be prepared to sign a one-year lease within 5 days. The security deposit is due at that time.
  6. The first month’s rent and pet deposits are due at move-in.
