Tenant FAQs

Answers to your common questions

Can you hold a place before I apply?
Future tenants may place a good faith deposit on a property and we may reserve the property that future tenant. Please keep in mind that if we reserve a property for your future rental use and thereby causing our property managers to take the property off the open rental market, and you change your mind about renting the property, you will forfeit 100% of your deposit as liquidated damages.

Do I pay first month’s rent and last month’s rent with my security deposit?
The security deposit amount will in most cases equal a single month’s rent.  The last month’s rent requirement varies by property but in general the vast majority of our rental properties require first month’s rent, last month’s rent and a security deposit to be fully paid in certified funds by the date you want to rent the property.  Personal checks or online payments are accepted for your monthly rent after the initial move-in funds are paid. 

How old do you have to be to apply?
The minimum age to apply for a property is 18 years old.

Is the deposit refundable?
Your security deposit is refundable subject to the terms of your specific lease and the Florida Landlord/Tenant Act.

Who needs a cosigner?
Tenants who do not meet our minimum tenant qualification requirements may need a cosigner to qualify.  Note: not all properties accept a cosigner.  If you think you may need a cosigner and have a question on a specific property click here to email us for more information.
