What is the residency application procedure?
Each adult over 18 years of age must submit an application which includes: paying the non-refundable application fee of $35.00, providing your landlord’s contact information and providing proof of income (current paystubs/awards letters, child support, disability, soc. security, foodstamps, etc). All paperwork and application fees must be paid/completed and signed before we can start the application process. Modern Property Groups LLC runs a credit, criminal, and eviction verification per applicant that will be responsible for the lease.

What happens once you are approved?
You will be contacted to schedule a lease signing and move-in date appointment. The home/apartment will not be held for any applicant until a lease is signed and a deposit down payment is made. A home/apartment will typically not be held for more than 14 days.

What is the amount of the security deposit and when is it due?
The security deposit is typically equal to 1 month’s rent and is due in full by your move-in date for a single family home. The amount of security deposit may vary based upon your credit and/or renting history.
