Statement of Rental Policy
- We are an equal opportunity housing provider. We fully comply with the Federal Fair Housing Act. We do not discriminate against any person because of race, color, sex, handicap, family status, or national origin. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws.
- Every adult (18 & over) who will be residing at the premises must fill out an application, must be named in the lease, and sign the lease. There will be no exceptions.
- Occupancy guidelines. To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on plumbing and other building systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in a rental property. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair-housing laws. We allow two persons per bedroom plus one additional person per house/apt/condo. For example, a one-bedroom could house three people, and a two-bedroom could house as many as five people.
- Application process. A $30.00 non-refundable application fee is required with each potential tenant's application. Married applicants must each pay $30.00. The information submitted on the application(s) is then verified via phone and/or fax by our processing department. The process can generally be completed within 48 hours. Once your application package has been verified, we can then determine if you meet our rental criteria. If it is determined that you do not meet the requirement your application will be rejected and you will be notified by mail. If all requirements are met your application will be approved. We will rent available properties to applicants in the order that their applications have been approved.

- Guarantors (Co-Signer). If you do not meet one of more of the above criteria, you may be able to qualify for a house/apt/condo if you can get a third party to guarantee your lease.
