Q: Do I have to have perfect credit to be approved, and how long does it take?
A: We have established a set of Tenant Qualification Criteria based on a number of factors,
including employment, income, rental history, credit and debt standards. We apply standardized
and consistent guidelines for all applicants with the goal of matching qualified tenants with a
high-quality home in the Tulsa Metro area, and we adhere to all Fair Housing laws. Perfect credit
is not required; however, a good credit score is very helpful. The screening process usually
takes 24 to 48 hours.
Q: How old do you have to be to apply?
A: All financially responsible applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
Q: How much is the security deposit?
A: The Security Deposit amount for each property is posted online.
If you meet all the requirements established by our Tenant Qualification Criteria, the
security deposit is normally close to or equal to one month’s rent, plus any additional
deposit required because you have a pet/s. If you don’t fully meet the requirements,
it’s possible that you may still qualify with a higher deposit or a qualified co-signer.
Q: Is the deposit refundable?
A: Yes, the security deposit is fully refundable if you fulfill the terms of your lease and
leave the property in the same condition as when you moved in, less a normal amount of wear
and tear for the amount of time that you occupied the home.

on the first of each month! With this FREE service, you can avoid any late fees, because
your rent will always be paid on the first of the month without you having to
remember to make the payment.
Q: Do I need renter’s insurance?
A: While not required, it is highly recommended. The good news is that renter's insurance is
incredibly inexpensive! It’s advisable for all tenants to carry enough insurance to cover
themselves and their personal property. Please consult with your insurance agent for specific details.
If you do not know an insurance agent, we will be happy to refer you to one.
Q: I have a pet or what if I want to get a pet after I move in. What do I do?
A: Each property will have a pet policy based on the homeowners insurance and personal preferences.
If the homeowner does in fact allow pets, be aware that there may be restrictions on the allowable
size of pets, and that certain breeds may not be allowed. (Service animals exempted.) You will be
required to sign an addendum to the lease which outlines all of the conditions for having a pet(s),
and pay an additional security deposit.
Q: How much is the pet security deposit?
A: The additional security deposit required if you have a pet is established on an individual basis
based on a number of factors,
but usually starts at $250. Typically a maximum of two pets per household are allowed.
Q: What are the total move-in fees?
A: The security deposit is due within 24-hours of application approval then the full first
month’s rent and any additional deposit required is due before your lease start date.
Q: What happens if I need to move before the end of my lease?
A: You will be responsible for rent, utilities and maintenance of the home
until a new tenant is placed. You will also be responsible for a break lease fee

marketing the property again for you until this formal notice is given.
