Is it possible to apply for a property that I haven't viewed?
Yes, however, if you choose to lease a house sight unseen, you will be required to sign a sight unseen addendum. If you are out of the area, we strongly suggest you have a representative view the home in your absence and complete neighborhood research prior to signing a lease. Photos serve as an approximate representation. Applicants should check whether the property matches their expectations and needs. Any application fees, security deposits, rent, and/or pet fees are nonrefundable should you decide you do not want to move forward.
Do I have to sign a lease?
Yes, you will be required to sign a 12-month lease before move in. Our leases are prepared by an Attorney to comply with Florida laws. If you are the successful leasing candidate, there is a lease fee of $50.00 to cover our administrative cost and the cost of preparing your lease. This fee is due on the date of move in.
What is your security deposit policy?
Applicants will be required to pay a security deposit at the time of lease execution in a minimum amount of one months’ rent. We reserve the right to require a higher security deposit and/or additional prepaid rent.
When will I have to move in?
Typically, we can hold a vacant property with your security deposit for up to 1 week at which time your lease would need to begin. A lease should be signed at the same time the security deposit is paid. Your first month's rent and pet fee are due in full, in certified funds, at our office by the day your lease begins.
What is required upon move in?
Security deposit due within 24 hours of your application being approved
First month's rent due on the date of move in

All move in funds are required in certified funds (cashier’s check or money order). We do not accept online payments, personal checks, wire transfers, or credit/debit cards in the office.
Can I have a cosigner?
The acceptance of a co-signer is not normal policy and is subject to individual approval or denial by Owner. If a guarantor or co-signer is considered, the co-signer/guarantor must also complete and sign an application to be processed and meet all rental requirements. They would also need to sign a guarantee of lease agreement stating they would be responsible to guarantee the lease at the time of lease signing.
What's the pet policy?
No pets (with the exception of medically necessary pets for the benefit of the occupant(s)) of any kind are permitted without specific written permission of landlord in the lease document, an addendum to lease, a non-refundable pet fee to landlord and/or an additional pet deposit or additional security deposit. Fees and deposits are waived for “medically necessary” pets as defined by the Pet Addendum. The following pets will not be accepted under any circumstances, GERMAN SHEPHERDS, DOBERMANS, PIT BULLS (OR ANY NAME VARIATION THEREOF), ROTTWEILERS, CHOW (ANY KIND OR BREED), ALASKAN MALAMUTE, STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER, PRESA CANARIO, AKITA, WOLF OR WOLF HYBRID, HUSKIES (ALL), OR ANY OTHER KNOWN-AGGRESSIVE ANIMAL

Your move out notice must be submitted in writing to landlords email or through your online portal. Move out notices must be given at the 1st of the month and must be for the last day of the month. If you would like to move out in the middle of the month, you may do so but you are still responsible for rent until the end of the month.
