APPLY ONLINE

Requirements/Fees

Your rental application may be considered for ANY properties that are available. Each adult occupant is required to submit an application. There is a non-refundable application fee of $75.00 for each adult. Married couples with the same last name may apply jointly and will only be charged one application fee of $75. No application will be processed without an application fee. Your application does not guarantee that you will be accepted nor does it commit that you will rent the property. If multiple applications are received for one property, the most qualified applicant will be accepted.

Effective May 1, 2017 the application fee increased to $75 per adult.

Specific Criteria to Qualify

Columbia Property Management looks at four separate categories when determining the overall strength of an application.

  • Income – Gross monthly income should be at least four (4) times the monthly rental amount per household. You will be required to submit a copy of your most recent pay stub for documentation verification.
  • Rental History – We contact current and previous landlords to obtain information on your payment history, care for the property, violation of lease terms, fulfillment of lease obligations, etc.
  • Credit History – We use the major credit reporting companies to obtain a copy of your credit history/score.
  • Public Records – We search public records to determine whether or not an applicant has had a history of evictions, criminal activity, fraudulent checks, etc. If you are not a US citizen, then you will be asked to submit proof of legal residency.

Securing a Property Once Approved

Once you have been notified that your application for a property has been approved, you will need to pay a security deposit in order to secure the property. We will continue to show the property and accept applications until an approved applicant has paid the full security deposit for that property. A property is only taken off the market for rent once a security deposit has been paid in full. Failure of the applicant(s) to sign the lease or take possession of the property will result in forfeiture of the security deposit.

Pet Restrictions

First verify that the property you are applying for will accept a pet. At a minimum, a non-refundable pet fee of $200.00 will be required prior to the animal being allowed at the property. The property owner reserves the right to decide the fee and/or determine whether or not to allow certain breeds, weight limits and age. Be prepared to provide picture documentation during application process.

Please note that we cannot allow any aggressive breeds due to insurance reasons. See list below:
Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Presa Canarios, Chows Chows, Doberman Pinschers, Akitas, Wolf-hybrids, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Great Danes, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies
