Tenant Information


We value our tenants and prospective tenants; you are the source of our livelihood. From the moment you walk in our office door you will be treated respectfully from our professionally trained staff.  Good tenant relations are important in maintaining our high occupancy rate; we take pride in the prompt response to our tenant’s maintenance requests, in handling and resolving any unforeseen problems and in the hiring of qualified, reliable employees and vendors.  


Holding Fee/Security Deposit:  The Holding Fee/Security Deposit is $50.00 less than the monthly rental amount unless otherwise stated.  As the Holding Fee, it will hold the property for a maximum of two weeks while we complete the screening process; upon your approval it then becomes your Security Deposit. The property you have applied for will not be taken off the market until the holding fee (the amount of the security deposit) is paid. This amount must be in the form of a Cashier’s Check or Money Order, no personal checks or cash. This is only refundable if we deny your application.

First Month’s Rent:  Your first month’s rent will be the full monthly amount regardless of what day of the month you move in.  You will pay the pro-rated amount your second month of tenancy. Your first month’s rent must be in the form of a Cashier’s Check or Money Order.

Pet Fee if Applicable:  Occasionally we have pet friendly properties available; Depending on the type and number of pets, a non-refundable fee due at the time of occupancy range from $200.00-$500.00. This must be in a separate check, money order or cashier’s check.


We do not accept cash in our office.  We will accept a personal check for the application fee, the co-signer application fee and your pet fee. Your Holding Fee and first month’s rent must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order.  Following your first month’s rent we will accept personal checks, money orders or a cashier’s check for rent due.
