Statement of Rental Policy

  1. 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, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws.
  2. APARTMENT AVAILABLILITY POLICY. We update our list of available apartments, as each apartment becomes available. An apartment that was unavailable in the morning may become available later that same day.
  3. OCCUPANCY GUIDELINES. To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on plumbing and other building systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in an apartment. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair housing laws. We allow two persons per bedroom plus one additional person per apartment. For example, a two-bedroom apartment could house as many as five people.
  4. APPLICATION PROCESS. We evaluate every application in the following manner. You must submit an application and answer all questions on the form. You must pay the $35.00 per person non-refundable application fee. We will determine whether, from your responses to the application questions, if you qualify for the apartment you are applying for. If you do not, we will reject the application. If you do qualify, we will send your application to our third party screening company, which will check your credit, residential and criminal reports to confirm that it meets all our rental criteria. If you meet our criteria, we will approve your application.
