Tenants FAQ - Q and A


Q. What are the important criteria used to qualify for renting a property?
A. Since we manage properties for many different property owners, each owner 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 or adverse filings in public records.
  • -No late fees or insufficient funds returned checks in rental history.
  • -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.

Q. How much does it cost to use our services?
A. There is no charge, for our staff to help you to find a property. If you decide to submit an application to rent one of our properties, there is a $40.00 charge for the credit and application background check.
Q. The listing says “no pets” How can I find out if an owner will reconsider their stated preference?
A. 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 verifiable history, or a large pet deposit, to cover possible damages. Pet restrictions do not apply to assisted living animals with proper documentation. .
Q. What other pet policies are there?
A. No property owners will approve occupancy for the following breeds of dogs: Rotweillers, Pitbulls, Dobermans, Chows, and German Shepherds. You will be required to sign a statement attesting to the fact that your pet has neither history of nor any known incident of showing a threatening posture towards people. Pet restrictions do not apply to assisted living animals with proper documentation.
Q. 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?
A. 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.
Q. We will not be moving for a few months, so how can I learn what properties will be available in the future?
A. 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.
Q. There are some properties that I want to see, how do I arrange to see them?
A. 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 our staff.
Q. I saw a property listed, but it is not on your web site. Why is this?
A. 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.
