Once the application is submitted this fee is non-refundable.

Once your application is approved Identification will be required in form of photo id to confirm identity. Earnest money in the amount of $200.00 will be required to hold the property within 48 hours of acceptance of the application. The property will not be held until the earnest money is received from applicantThe applicant understands that if this application is accepted and the applicant fails to execute a lease within 10 days of being notified (unless otherwise approved in writing) of their application approval, the earnest money will be forfeited as liquidated damages. Upon acceptance, this deposit shall be retained as part of the security deposit.

A Security Deposit equivalent to one month’s rent is due at lease signing. This deposit is refundable if the property is returned in as good or better condition than when it was received. If not, it may be used to return the property to a marketable condition. Security deposits cannot be used towards last months rent.

A Pet Deposit of $100.00 per pet may be required in addition to the security deposit.
