Yes, there is an application fee of $35.00 per applicant over the age of 18. This fee covers the cost of a routine background and soft credit check.
Will the background or credit check negatively affect my credit score?
In order to insure we are choosing the right tenants for our apartments, we do run a routine background and soft credit check. Soft credit checks will not affect your credit.
What is required for a security deposit?
We determine the amount needed for a security deposit from the information gathered from the background and soft credit check during the application process.
The best possible outcome would be one month security deposit and the first month's rent due at the time of lease signing.
The worst possible outcome would be two months security and a cosigner along with the first month's rent due at the time of lease signing.
