Holding Deposit

A holding deposit is a deposit tenants pay landlord to hold a unit until the tenants can move in. A holding deposit serves as a tenant's pledge to rent a property. The landlord takes their property off the market and promises not to rent it to other potential tenants by holding the unit. Holding deposits allow tenants the flexibility to secure housing until they can pay their security deposit. Likewise, they enable landlords the opportunity to secure a lease for their rental properties quickly.

Applicants will be required to provide the "Holding/Security Deposit"  upon acceptance of their applications and must be prepared to pay their first month's rent within 14-days from approval date.

NOTE: All applicants are required to move in within 14-days from being approved.

If you have a situation that you would like to explain in advance of your application being processed, please email or write it on a separate piece of paper and submit with application to the Property Manager. Must include your FULL NAME and the PROPERTY ADDRESS you are applying for.
