Leasing Checklist Esignature


We take pride in our management and in our apartment communities.  We actively seek good residents to make their homes with us, and we strive to provide the best services we possibly can while they live in our communities.

Screening applicants very carefully, we thoroughly verify all information provided to us on the rental application you complete and from other sources available to us.

The screening and verification process are used for every application the same way – fairly, consistently and uniformly.  We work very diligently to observe both the spirit and the letter of the FAIR HOUSING LAWS – not just because they are the law of the land, but because we sincerely believe, personally and as a company, in fair housing and equal opportunity in fair housing for everyone.

Please completely fill in your application and provide your legal form of identification (only at the time of application, never prior) for verification purposes.  If you do not provide us with complete information, we will not be able to process the application successfully.  If there is any item on the application that you do not understand, please ask for assistance.  If there is additional information that you feel might be of assistance to us, please let us know.  We are here to be of service to you and others seeking housing.
