How to Apply

Start Your Application

 

 

Submitting Your Application

Application processing is 3-5 business days. We must have ALL these items before we can begin processing your application:

  • $45 non-refundable application fee, which will apply to all of our properties for up to 30 days
  • A completed application for each person 18 or older that will be residing in the home
  • A copy of each person’s photo ID
  • Income verification (ex. Paystubs, tax return, bank statements, letter of employment

If you have questions during the process please email leasing@sbdhousing.com.

Keep in Mind

We received approximately 120 applications per month, and they are processed in the order that they are received. A property will not be held until the security deposit has been received. If multiple applications are received for any one property the property owner will have the final decision regarding acceptance. If another applicant has been approved for a property that you have applied for, you will be contacted via email and given the opportunity to transfer your application to another property.

*(Tip: Many times, rental verification can take the longest to complete due to contact with past landlords; anything you can do to help expedite that process is helpful).

Once You Have Been Approved

An offer of approval will be sent to you requesting the base security deposit (in full) within 24 hrs. to reserve the home.

Once the security deposit has been received a member of our team will prepare the lease agreement, which will be available to sign via our Tenant Portal. Each lessee must log into their individual tenant account to sign the documents. (i.e. if more than once person is on your lease, each individual must log in to their own portal to sign the agreement)

Move-in shall be within 2 weeks of approval OR available date. You are required to pay a FULL month’s rent, additional security deposit (if applicable) and any pet fees to receive instructions for move-in. If are you moving in after the 1st of the month the rent will be prorated; however, you do not pay the prorated amount until your second month (i.e. Move in on June 15th = Pay full month rent. July 1st = the prorated rental amount is due). You must have utilities transfers into your household name prior to your move-in date and confirmation numbers must be provided.

*We are a paperless office and encourage you to use our online payment portal for rental payments. Payments processed manually are subject to an additional fee per payment.

Pet Fees

We accept cats & dogs with no weight restrictions except where specified for individual properties. All pet fees are NONREFUNDABLE. There is a minimum charge of $300 per animal plus a month pet rent of $25.00 per pet. There is an additional pet fee of $150 per additional animal with a max limit of 3. Unauthorized animals are any animal not reported to our office and are subject to a pet violation fee. Please note that our rentals do not permit pit bulls, or any mixture thereof, at the premises.
