No, you must send an application for a viewed property only. If you don’t, we will deny your application while retaining the application fee.

It's important to see the property instead of only looking at the photos as the photos only serve as an approximate representation. Applicants should come in-person to see whether or not the property matches their needs and expectations.

Yes, but every roommate needs to get approval before moving in. The potential roommate can apply online the same way you did. After completing the application, pet application, paying the application fee, waiting for the screening results, and providing proof of renter’s insurance, they will be sent a leasing addendum to sign. Once all of these steps are complete, they will be allowed to move into the property. Skipping any of these steps violates the lease and could lead to a termination of your tenancy.

If there's a need for us to enter the property, we'll be sure to notify you beforehand. There are numerous reasons for the entrance of managers or staff.
