When the property comes available, each individual on the waiting list will be contacted to view the home. They will have a short amount of time to view the property and decide if they would like to sign a lease. The property can be held with a signed lease and payment of the security deposit for up to two weeks. Execution of the lease and payment of the security deposit requires the fulfillment of the total lease term. Please read and complete all information sections provided.
