Submitting an Application
Our approval process typically takes two to three business days to complete. We require that you have a take home income of three times greater than the rental amount per month, have good standing credit, and good standing rental history. We will be looking into your credit, but will not be looking for a specific credit score, we care about what your credit looks like in regards to monthly payments. We will call your current, and previous, landlords to get a better understanding of your previous rental experiences. If we do not have all documents required for the approval process, we will not begin the process. Those elements are:
1. Filled out application for anyone 18 or older that will be living at the property you are interested in. - Click HERE to download the lease application.
2. Copy of government issued I.D. for anyone 18 or older planning on living in the property you are interested in.
3. Proof of income over the last month. - If you've recently started a new job, we can accept a hire-on letter from your employer that states your yearly/hourly income and how many hours you will be working per week.
4. Fee-to-Hold- a check or money order equal to one month's rent of the property you're interested in. - This check or money order will not be cashed until you are approved and set to move in. Once it is cashed, your Fee-to-Hold will then turn into your security deposit. If, for whatever reason, you are not approved, or someone else is selected instead of you, you will receive that check or money order back, in full, uncashed.
There are a couple of different methods available to you for submitting the application. You may drop off your completed application to our office at 419 E 8th Street, Suite 30, Holland, MI 49423 at any time. We have a convenient and secure drop box for you to use on the right hand side of the front door. You may also email your documents to either Maria or Tina (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). - If you are out of state, country, or town, you may mail the check or money order. If you include tracking information, we may begin the approval process before the check arrives.
*We do not have a non-refundable application fee.
*If you are approved for a property, and you back out before moving in, you will forfeit your Fee-to-Hold*
