APPLICATION ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Dear Rental Applicant:
We take pride in our rental homes. We offer guarantees in regard to your satisfaction and our maintenance responsibilities. We seek only qualified residents to reside in our homes.
We screen our applicants carefully and we verify all information provided to us on the rental application. We run a credit report, criminal and eviction search on every applicant, we verify employment and we check previous rental history. All intended people, pets and vehicles must be disclosed.
The screening and verification process is used the same way for every applicant -- fairly and consistently. We observe and believe in the fair housing laws. An applicant who passes the screening criteria is offered a rental when one is still available. An applicant who does not satisfy the screening criteria is not accepted as a resident.
By making application for one of our rentals, you acknowledge that these verifications will be done, and give us permission to do them. Please completely fill in the rental application. If you do not provide us with complete information, we will not be able to process the application. We will do our best to process your application quickly and normally finish within a 72 hour period. If you have not heard back from us by then, feel free to contact us. Please read and sign below acknowledging acceptance of the terms of your application. Thank you for making an application for one of our rentals and we hope you will become a long-term resident with us.
1) I have double checked the information I have provided on the rental application and agree that it is true and complete.
2) I understand that an update of the information on this application shall be requested. I agree to provide updated information and notify management of any changes (i.e., employment, phone number, car, emergency contact).
3) Reliable documentation and telephone numbers for all income must be provided, no exceptions.
*If employed, you will need last year's W-2s and your two most current pay stubs.
*If self-employed, most current Schedule C tax return and proof of current income year
* Other income such as retirement, AFDC, SDI, or others must have reliable documentation.
*Photo documentation (driver's license, military ID or state ID) is required.
4) I agree to pay a $ 35 nonrefundable processing fee (per adult 18 and over), plus a $350 refundable holding deposit to reserve/hold the rental for me should my application be accepted. If accepted, the holding deposit will be applied toward my move-in costs, including rent and security deposit. You may ask to seek a copy of our lease at any time.
5) I hereby waive any claim for damages if my application is not accepted.
6) I understand that every good faith effort will be made to have the premises ready for occupancy as promised. However, should the premises not be available for occupancy on the date promised, I hereby waive any and all rights to seek to recover damages of any kind from the landlord or management company.
7) I certify that I am not manufacturing, using, storing, or selling dangerous controlled substances, and understand that I will immediately be required to vacate the premises if evidence of such is found on the premises, or if I am convicted of any crimes related to possession and/or distribution of controlled dangerous substances.
8) I understand and agree that this application is NOT a lease or rental agreement, and should it be accepted, I will sign the lease provided within two business days of being accepted. In order to sign the lease, all monies for the unit (including rent, security deposit, and other fees) must be paid in full. Should I fail to sign the lease or not pay all the monies due at move-in, the application shall be considered withdrawn, there will be no further obligation to reserve the rental and any and all monies shall be forfeit.

I value putting the right deal together vs. simply pursuing a commission or fee.
The Manager, Tenant, and Owner have to be willing to enter into forthright and honest business dealings.
There are Property/Owner situations, however rare, that have to be avoided and in the past, I have actually returned properties when circumstances dictated.
