What is the process for applying to live at a rental property?
The first step in applying to live at a rental property listed by Access Property Management Group is to schedule a showing with a Property Manager. Next, you will need to submit an application and pay an application fee of $30.00 per adult over the age of 18 that would like to live at the property. An application can be submitted on the Rental Application page or a paper copy can be turned in at our Property Management office. The application fee allows us to run a criminal and credit background check. We will also verify income and ask for rental history references. A cosigner may be required under certain conditions. Please see our Screening Policy for more details. When your application is approved, you will be asked to pay the security deposit and schedule a move in date within the next 30 days. This payment will hold the unit for you until your scheduled move in date. Please see the Move In Information page for further information.
I have a pet. Do the homes that Access Property Management Group lists accept pets?
Every property is different because it depends on the preference of the homeowner. Most of our homeowners will allow pets with an additional deposit. Breed or species restrictions may apply depending on the owner’s preference. AGGRESSIVE PET BREEDS ARE NOT ALLOWED. It is best to contact our office for detailed information on the pet policy for the home you are interested in.
