PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE PROCEEDING TO THE APPLICATION FORM.
We process our applications on a first come, first serve basis. This is determined by the time your completed application is received. A completed application will consist of:
1. A fully filled out application from all occupants above the age of 18 yrs., including all adult children living in the home.
2. A copy of your government issued photo ID.
3. A copy of your most recent check stub or other verifiable income. Income must be more than 3 times the rent.
4. A copy of the signed rental verification, with your current landlords contact information or a fully filled out copy by your current landlord.
5. Please email all items to firstname.lastname@example.org
If we have not received your completed application, we will move on to the next applicant. Once we begin processing the first complete application, all other applications are held in a backup status, unless you advise us that you would like to withdraw your application. If the first applicant does not qualify or they withdraw, we will move on to the next completed application. If the first application is approved and you are in a backup position, we can keep your application for up to 30 days and use it for another Suburban home or we can destroy it. You will not be charged the application fee unless we run your application. Applications require 24-48 business hours to process.
Our application fee is $40 per applicant. Every person that is over the age of 18 residing in the home 2 weeks or more per year must fill out an application. Application fees will not be refunded for denied applications.
The maximum occupancy is two (2) persons per bedroom.
Applicants must be 18 years of age unless deemed an adult under applicable law.

All income sources must be concurrent with the duration of the lease.

If one or more roommates move out, the security deposit will stay with the home. All roommates are considered 100% responsible for the rent. We do not accept partial payments; all payment arrangements made between tenants are solely between the tenants.
All applicants must provide a legible copy of a government issued photo id.
Rental history will be verified for each applicant. Applicants must have at least 1 year of verifiable rental or residence history from a non-family member. Suburban's Rental Verification form can be found on our website. All applicants that owe money to a previous landlord will be denied. All applicants with a previous eviction will be denied.
Holding Fee Policy
The application fee and holding fees are non-refundable. If you cancel your lease prior to moving in, the holding fee will be forfeited for liquidated damages. Once your lease begins your holding fee will satisfy your security deposit requirements.
Although renters insurance is not required it is highly recommended. Please be advised that the home owner's insurance policy will not cover a tenant's personal property.
Suburban Real Estate Group allows a 2 pet maximum per household (this is typically in line with HOA requirements but it is recommended tenant verifies with HOA). Assistive Animals are not considered pets. Pet deposits will be charged when applicable. Please ask the leasing agent what the pet allowances are for each property.
Assistive animals must be signed off by a healthcare provider. Tenant may have 1 assistive animal only unless a letter is provided by a licensed healthcare provider stating otherwise.
Falsification of any information on the rental application will result in automatic denial. Applicants may additionally be required to be subject to more restrictive criteria as outlined in HOA or municipality guidelines.
Once you are approved the next step is to pay the holding deposit and sign the lease. This must be done within 48 hours of approval or the next applicant will be run. Homes can be held for a maximum of 2 weeks if vacant. If occupied ask your leasing agent what the move in date is for that home. Rent for the first month will be pro-rated based on a 30 day rent cycle. Both the holding deposit and the first month rent must be paid in certified funds (i.e. money order or cashier's check).
