If you apply to live in our community, you will be given a copy of this written screening policy and a receipt for your screening charge.  We will tell you how many available units there are, how many applications are currently pending for those units and any units we may have available at other properties we own.  Our units' rents and standard security deposit amounts are on display in the office of the property.  We will provide them upon request.

You have the right to dispute the accuracy of any information provided to the landlord by a screening company or credit reporting agency.
