Application Process

Info You Need

We are looking forward to being of service to you, so let's get started with how the rental/leasing application works - Here are some of the most common questions new tenants ask:
Buyer Beware!
It is not uncommon for Owners to deny any applications with the following issues-

1.    A foreclosure within the past 2 years

2.    A Bankruptcy which has been discharged less than 12 months ago

3.    Continuing Negative credit history following a Bankruptcy

4.    A prior eviction filed within the past 4 years, unpaid rent, or a negative landlord reference

5.    A Felony conviction may cause your application to be denied

Rent is expected by the FIRST day of each month.  The rent you pay may be used by Your Landlord to pay mortgages, repairs, maintenance, licensing fees, taxes, insurance, and possibly utilities.  As you can see, receiving the rent in a timely manner is extremely important!  Rent will be considered late and late fees will apply by the 6th. day of each month.  If your rent payment is returned to us for ANY reason by your financial institution, we can request payments for rent for a minimum of one year with certified funds.  It is also possible that you may lose your status in our reliable tenant program, and  your monthly rental payment will be increased.  


Do you accept Section 8, or Subsidized Programs?

·         It is possible that an owner will accept one of these programs. If we have a home for rent/lease that you are interested in as a Section 8 or Program tenant, we will need to gather the application from you in as complete a form as possible to present to the owner, who will then make the final decision.


How long does it take to Process an Application?

·         It can take as little as 2-3 days, but it can be delayed by weekends or holidays. After gathering the information we will present your application to the owner and will then let you know as soon as we have a reply. We promise to never keep you waiting longer than absolutely necessary. The process to complete your application packet can be delayed by weekends, holidays, or a delay in obtaining previous rental verification information from your present Landlord, or a previous Landlord.


Is there an application fee?

·         Yes, this covers the cost of credit and criminal reporting, employment verification, and rental history. It is $45.00 per person. Anyone over 18 who will be living in your home must fill out an application.  Applicants applying individually will be linked if living in the same property.


Will I automatically be eliminated if I have past credit or criminal history?

·         Absolutely not - the information is gathered and presented to the owner of your new home. The owner(s), may choose to accept your application, or present an alternative that may work for everyone.


**Home Up Keep

MOST IMPORTANTLY!! We want to hear from you if there are any issues that require a qualified maintenance/repair person to come to your home. Some of the issues that can cause major damage, and headaches for you are:

Water leakage - under sinks, and toilets, and roofs
Heating, Air Conditioning and Hot Water Systems - If these are not functioning correctly please let us know immediately. However, please check with your utility companies first to make sure the problem is mechanical. If we send a repair person, but the system is functioning correctly, and the problem was with billing, we will charge you the cost of the trip and diagnosis.

The items Tenants are responsible for are listed below:

1.    Keeping the home clean.

2.    If there is a yard, and the tenant is responsible per the lease, you will be expected to keep the yard mowed, trimmed, and watered during the spring/summer/fall months. Leaves must be raked and removed. Branches/Limbs/Lawn Clippings must not be left anywhere in the yard.  Bushes must be trimmed and planting beds maintained weed free.

3.    Replacing all light bulbs.

4.    Checking and Replacing Smoke Alarm Batteries.

5.    Replacing Furnace filters at least every 3 months.

6.    Insect and Rodent control.

7.    Disposal of All Toxic Waste.

8.    Removal of all Trash

9.    Removal of all Holiday Decorations within 3 weeks of the calendar date of the Holiday.

10. Any Accidental Damage Caused by the Tenant.


We reserve the right to conduct interior inspections with written notice to the tenant. If we find tenant lease violations the tenant will be notified in writing of the needed corrections and another inspection will be scheduled. If it is determined during the second interior inspection that there continues to be lease violations, monthly inspections will be scheduled for a minimum of three additional months at a cost of $75.00 per inspection charged to the tenant. It is also possible the lease may be canceled. We are serious about the responsibility of keeping a safe, comfortable home for you and the owner.


**Missouri Broker Agency Disclosure Brochure**

Other Agency Relationships

MISSOURI BROKER DISCLOSURE FORM

Missouri law does not prohibit written agency agreements which provide for duties exceeding that of a limited agent described in this pamphlet.

This brokerage authorizes the following relationships:

·         Seller's Limited Agent

·         Landlord's Limited Agent

·         Buyer's Limited Agent

·         Tenant's Limited Agent

·         Sub-Agent

·         Disclosed Dual Agent

·         Designated Agent

·         Transaction Broker

·         Other Agency Relationship

This disclosure is to enable you, a prospective buyer, seller, tenant or landlord of real estate, to make an informed choice BEFORE working with a real estate licensee.

Missouri law allows licensees to work for the interest of one or both of the parties to the transaction. The law also allows the licensee to work in a neutral position. How the licensee works depends on the type of brokerage service agreements involved. Since the sale or lease of real estate can involve several licensees, it is important that you understand what options are available to you regarding representation and to understand the relationships among the parties to any transaction in which you are involved.

Missouri laws require that if you want representation, you must enter into a written agreement. This may or may not require you to pay a commission. You do not need to enter into a written agreement with a transaction broker unless you intend to compensate this licensee. These agreements vary and you may also want to consider an exclusive or nonexclusive type of relationship.

If you choose not to be represented by an agent, the licensee working with you may be working for the other party to the transaction.
