Tenant FAQs

Answers to your common questions

Can a rental residence be reserved just for me?
Future tenants may pay a Reservation Fee on any property they wish to rent after we receive and approve the rental application. Once we receive your Reservation Fee we will reserve the property specifically for you. Please keep in mind that if we reserve a property for your future rental use and thereby cause 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 Reservation Fee.

How much money does it take to move-in to a rental property?
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.

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