Application Processing and Time Frame:
If you fully complete the application, pay the fee and provide us with all the requested documentation, we can usually process your application in 24-48 hours. In some cases correspondence with previous landlords, employers, references, or unforeseen circumstances may require some applications to take longer. You will be contacted immediately upon determination of approval or denial. All adult applicants over the age of 18 must submit a fully completed, dated and signed rental application and application fee.
Things You Will Need To Submit With The Application:

Resident Selection Criteria:
To qualify for the advertised security deposit amount you must meet the following criteria. If your credit, residence history or income does not qualify, you may still be approved but at a higher security deposit amount or with a co-signer:
- Your credit profile will be pulled along with a criminal and rental history. Not all delinquent accounts will count against you but a risk assessment will be made focusing on your ability to maintain the monthly rental payments.
- Bankruptcy is OK provided it has been discharged and recent payment history is satisfactory.
- Foreclosures are OK provided the rent is less than your mortgage payment used to be.
