For tenants, the $40 credit and criminal check fee is non-negotiable. We know this cost is much lower than the application fee that you’ll be required to pay at other rental agencies, so we feel confident that it’s fair and accessible. If you’re interested in a property but you think it’s a bit outside your budget, talk to us about the rental price. We can show you other properties that are better suited for your budget, and in some cases we’re willing to talk to the property owner to see if there is any room for negotiation on monthly rent. As long as your offer isn’t completely outside the realm of possibility, we’ll be happy to take it to the property owner.
Before you move in, you’ll be required to pay a security deposit, and if applicable, a pet deposit. These funds need to be deposited with a certified check or a money order. Once we receive the deposit, the property is taken off the market and we can start making plans for your move in. Before turning over the keys, you’ll need to pay the first month’s rent in full.
