  • What if I have a poor credit score?

    We understand life happens and credit scores may not give 100% of the full story. We don’t look just at the number. We ask that any tenant explains issues on credit scores. What we are looking for is a pattern of not paying bills and your story will help to fill that in. Any score less than 620 may require higher deposits initially that can be refunded after 6 months of on time payments.

    The Lease Agreement is typically for a 12-month term. Shorter or longer leases must be approved prior to submitting an application but may incur higher rent fees.

The monthly rent is due on the 1st of each month and is considered late after the 5th, which will result in a daily late fee after the 5th. The Non-Refundable Reservation Fee will convert to the Refundable Security Deposit and $120 Lease Administration Fee once the Lease Agreement begins and possession is taken. After the initial lease term, either party may provide a 60-day notice to vacate.
