Rental Application process: Your application to rent from us must be made on our rental application form. The rental application needs to be filled out completely and accurately. We will not process an incomplete application. Any misstatements or omissions made on your application, whether or not discovered before you move into the building, is grounds for denial of an application or termination of an existing tenancy. Information must also be legible and verifiable. If information given to us on the application cannot be checked out and verified, this is a valid basis for rejection.
Fees Associated with your Application: Pre-Lease/holding Fee: Applicants must pay a $500.00 fee to hold the apartment during the application process. This fee is non refundable 48 hours after the date of the application. This insures that we hold the apartment for the applicant during the application process. This must be paid before we will begin processing the application. Application Fee: There is a $35.00 application fee per adult applying. This is non refundable from the moment it is paid and must be paid before the application will be processed. Lease Paperwork and Payment: Applicants approved for occupancy will not be entitled to an apartment until they sign all lease paperwork and pay a security deposit and any rent required at the of the time of signing. Management requires that its forms of lease paperwork and any applicable addendum or rules be signed. If Management has accepted a pre-lease deposit to hold an apartment and the application is approved, the deposit will be applied toward any security deposit owed under the lease. Management uses the tenant screening company listed below: Rental History Reports, 10505 Wayzata Blvd Suite 200, Minnetonka, MN 55305, (952) 545-3953. The application fee charged by Management is nonrefundable. It is applied to the costs of our resident screening. We will not take an application and an application fee unless we have an apartment available or reasonably believe that an apartment will be available in the future. Identification required: Photo Identification. Every adult that will be living in the apartment is required to complete a rental application and to provide a government issued photo ID.

Housing History. You must provide the name and last known phone number for each landlord/property manager/lender for each address you have had for the last three years. Roommate references are not acceptable. Failure to disclose an address in the last three years is cause for rejection of your application. Home ownership with references from a lender will be considered. A refusal from a prior landlord or lender to give a reference or a negative reference may be grounds for a denial.
Eviction Filing. Eviction case history will be checked. Eviction actions within the past three years for rent or eviction actions in the last six years for other reasons may be a basis for a denial.
Credit Reference. Credit will be checked. An adverse credit reference (under 600), bankruptcy and judgements may be grounds for a rejection of an application.
Criminal/Public Record History. Applicants who have an adverse criminal/public record history may be rejected. A criminal/public record history of convictions or open and pending charges may be a basis for denial. In considering criminal/public record history, we do consider the age and severity of the offense and the impact that the offense could have on the potential safety and welfare of the residents, staff, the well being of the property, the reputation of the property, the conformance of the property to rental licensing, local ordinance requirements and participation in any crime free drug free housing program.
Exceptions. Exceptions may be considered for applicants who do not have a housing history because they are first time renters, students or applicants who are on the borderline for acceptance because of household income and credit reasons. Exceptions are based solely on the discretion of Management and will depend on the overall strength of the balance of the applicant’s application. If an exception is permitted it may require the applicant to pay an additional security deposit. Animals: One dog or one cat is accepted. The animal must be under 35 pounds, 12 months or older and there are fees associated with the animal. Certain breeds will not be accepted, vaccines must be updated and documentation of the above must be provided by a Veterinarian. Absolutely no animal is allowed without Management's approval. You will need to pay fees, and sign the animal license agreement before the animal moves in. Exceptions for animals used to accommodate a disability, where verifiable proof of the disability and the need for the accommodation is provided. Additional information: Business Relationship. The relationship between a landlord and resident is a business relationship. A courteous and businesslike attitude is required from both parties. We reserve the right to refuse rental to anyone who is verbally abusive, swears, is disrespectful, makes threats, has been drinking, is argumentative or in general displays an attitude at the time of the showing and application process that causes Management to believe we would not have a positive business relationship.
