APPLICATION ADDENDUM - ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
Dear Rental Applicant:
We take pride in our rental homes. We offer guarantees in regard to your satisfaction and our maintenance responsibilities. And we actively seek only qualified residents to reside in our homes.
We screen our applicants carefully and we completely verify all information provided to us on the rental application. We run a credit report on every applicant, we verify employment and we check previous rental history.
The screening and verification process is used for every applicant the same way -- fairly and consistently. We also work to observe the fair housing laws. An applicant who passes the screening criteria is offered a rental when one is still available. An applicant who does not satisfy the screening criteria is not accepted as a resident.
By making application for one of our rentals, you acknowledge that these verifications will be done, and give us permission to do them. Please completely fill in the rental application. If you do not provide us with complete information, we will not be able to process the application. We will do our best to process your application quickly and normally within a 72 hour period. If you have not heard back from us by then, feel free to contact us. Please read and sign below acknowledging acceptance of the terms of your application. Thank you for making an application for one of our rentals and we hope you will become a long term resident with us.
