Tenant Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find a list of your rentals?

You may find a list of our available rentals here.

How do I schedule a showing to see one of your rentals?

You will need to fill out a tenant application here. Once your application is submitted and reviewed we will contact you to schedule a showing.

Is there an application fee and what are your qualifications?

Yes. The application fee is $100 per adult. *NOTE* Application fee(s) are not due upon showing a property, but we are looking for three things in your application in order to qualify:  

1) Applicant(s) must demonstrate minimum gross income of 3.5 times the rent. (Example: Rent is $700, monthly income must demonstrate minimum $2,450).

2) Good rental history. If this if your first time renting, we may consider a guarantor or double deposit.

3) Clean background check. Absolutely no evictions in the last seven years.

Applications will not be fully processed until the fee and security deposit is paid. If you are unable to demonstrate the above criteria in good faith or your application is inaccurate, your application will be declined. Application fees are non-refundable.

Do you accept Section 8 Housing Assistance?

We no longer accept Section 8 Housing Assistance.

Do you accept pets?

If pets are allowed in the property of interest, a $200 non-refundable privilege fee per pet will apply. The following breeds are not permitted under any circumstance: Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Akitas, Doberman Pinschers, Chows, Rottweilers, Great Danes, Caucasian Mountain Dogs, Shaffordshire Terriers, American Bulldogs, Beaucerons, Keeshonds or any mix thereof, or exotic animals or saddle animals. If you are unsure of the breed or have questions regarding service animals, please contact us directly at (850) 701-2300.

Do you run my credit report?

No.

What is the security deposit for the rental I am interested in?

Security deposits are equal to the listed rent price. (Example, $700 rental rate would require a $700 deposit).

I’m really interested. I have toured the property and would like to rent it. What’s next?

You will need to bring the following to our office:

    • Valid Driver’s License
    • Application Fee(s)
    • Security Deposit

Our office is located at 719 N. Calhoun St, Tallahassee FL, 32303. All fees must be paid with certified funds (Money Order or Cashier’s Check). We do not accept cash. Depending on your method of income, pay stubs or other supporting documentation will be required. If your application is declined due to insufficient income, background, or poor rental history, your security deposit will be returned. Application fee(s) are non-refundable.

My application has been approved and I’m ready to sign my lease. How should I prepare?

You will need to bring the following to our office:

    • Proof of utilities turned on in your name.
    • Any prorated rent due for the days you will occupy the property.

All named parties on the application will need to be present to sign the lease. Our office will provide keys and a walk-through form.

When is the rent due?

Rent is due on the 1st of the month and late after the 3rd of the month. On the 4th of the month the tenant is subject to being charged an initial late fee of $50 and then $10 per day for each additional day the rent is unpaid. After the 4th calendar day of the month, if the rent is not paid in full, the tenant is also subject to receiving a $75 three-day notice.

Can I pay online?

Established tenants are able to make online payments with a bank account through the tenant portal.

What is a tenant portal?

The tenant portal is an online service that allows tenants to pay rent online, submit maintenance requests, review their ledger, and have access to lease documents.

Who is responsible for the maintenance of my rental?

In most cases, tenants are responsible for lawn maintenance and pest control. Otherwise, these services will be explicitly stated on your lease. Tenants are responsible to change consumable goods such as air filters, batteries, and light bulbs.

What happens if I don’t change the air filter?

Long term neglect to change the filter may result in under performing or irreversible damage to the air conditioning unit. Costs associated to repair or replace the unit in this circumstance will be charged to the tenant. Florida summers are hot–remember to change your filter regularly.

How do I submit a maintenance request?  

You may submit maintenance requests online through the tenant portal or call the office at (850) 701-2300.
