Once you have decided to make a Schermerhorn community your home it is necessary to complete an application. Applications can be picked up at the office, faxed, mailed or downloaded from this website. Approval status is the first step to assuring your selection is held for you until lease signing.
You must be 18 years of age or older to apply as a party to a residential lease agreement. The application must be completely filled out and have an original signature. Signatures on faxed copies are acceptable. Our leasing specialists are available 7 days a week 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to answer questions and assist with the application process. In addition, we have open houses 7 days a week at our Kingswood Village, Bluebird Village, Deer Run and Willows communities to assist you with your housing needs.
There is a non-refundable application fee of $25. Most applications can be processed within 24 to 72 hours. In cases where employer information or rental history cannot be verified directly, alternate supporting documents may be accepted. Our leasing specialists can assist with this process.
The screening process includes obtaining previous landlord references. If the applicant is a homeowner and does not have a prior landlord, verification of timely mortgage payments or other documentation may be requested. An applicant’s income should be at least three times the rental amount. We verify employment references and salary information. For self-employed and non-employment income we verify sources and amounts. Non-employee income verification documents can include: tax returns, bank and business references, government documents.
Our screening process includes a detailed credit report. If approved, applicants with recent bankruptcies and/or credit problems may be required to make advance rent payments. Please discuss any questions or concerns regarding credit and/or background requirements with one of our leasing specialists before submitting the application.
Pets are permitted on designated properties. Inform one of our leasing specialists if pets will be residing with you. Pets are accepted or rejected based on the criteria for each pet-friendly community. Application/Registration for pets must also be completed for those requesting pet privileges. For properties permitting pets, nonrefundable pet permission fees and pet rents apply. Pet rents are currently $20 per month per pet and the nonrefundable pet permission is $500 for the first pet and $100 for an additional pet. Pets must be at least one year of age.
