||How much does it cost to use our services?
||There is no charge, for our staff to help
you to find a property. If you decide to submit

||At the time of submitting an application for
tenancy, you may request an exception that you
want the owner to consider. Sometimes, but not
always, an owner may reconsider their
requirements after reviewing your pet’s

||What other pet policies are there?
||No property owners will approve occupancy
for the following breeds of dogs: Rotweillers,
Pitbulls, Dobermans, Chows, and German

||The property is available for rent now but
we will not be able to rent for three months.
Will the owner hold the property until we need
it if we pay a deposit?
||No, not with just a deposit. Owners may be
willing to hold a property for maybe 3 to 7 days
after the property is available, and then they
require that rent starts and payments are made.
||We will not be moving for a few months, so
how can I learn what properties will be
available in the future?
||Tenants are required to give a 30 day notice
of their intentions to move, so we seldom know
beyond 30 days which properties are going to be
available for rent. Since we manage many
properties, there are usually several choices
available. These properties are updated on our
web site on a daily basis, so you may want to
check our web site often as the time gets closer
for you to move.
||There are some properties that I want to
see, how do I arrange to see them?
||Many properties are occupied and
appointments will be needed to see the inside of
the property. You may drive by the properties
however. The current occupant is advised not to
allow any prospective tenant access to their
property without an appointment being made by
||I saw a property listed, but it is not on
your web site. Why is this?
||Our web site is updated on a daily basis
while other advertising and listing less
frequently. If a property is not listed on our
web site, it is because it was just rented. Also
we list new properties on our web site first.
