Potential Residents - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What do I need to do to move into one of your properties?
We require an application to be filled out as part of the screening process. You will need to provide background information such as your social security number and current address, among other things. We use the application provided by Montgomery County, Maryland's Department of Housing and Community Affairs website. Married couples only need to fill out a single application. For non-married applicants that want to share a property, each potential resident must fill out a separate application. If you would like to fill out the application in advance, click here to download the application.

How much is the application fee?
There is no application fee at all. Unlike other rental companies, we do not use applications as a source of profit. It's unfair that other companies collect a non-refundable application fee, even if somebody else gets the property! We eliminate the need for this fee by having you provide a copy of your own credit report that is less than 30 days old. It is easy and free to get a copy of your credit report- see the next question to learn how!

How can I get a free copy of my credit report?
Thanks to legislation in 2005, anybody can get one free copy of their credit report per year from each of the three main credit reporting agencies: Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. To get your free copy, visit AnnualCreditReport.com and follow the easy steps online. We prefer that you submit the Experian report with your application, since in our opinion it is the best formatted and easiest to read. We do NOT need your credit scores or results from all three agencies. There is NO need to pay any fees at all to the credit agencies. Just decline any offers for credit report upgrades as you obtain your free report. If you have already used up your one free report for the year, just pick the least expensive credit report the agency offers. It typically costs less than $15.00 for the basic report.

How do you choose which applicant gets the property?
We practice fairness and follow the letter of the law when it comes to processing applications. When you submit a completed application, it will be dated and numbered. All applications are processed in the order that they are received, and the first applicant that meets the approval criteria is offered the property. If that applicant declines the offer, then the next application in order is processed. Please note that an application is not considered completed and will not be numbered/processed until it is filled out fully and a copy of the credit report is provided for each potential resident over 18 years of age. If you are truly interested in a property, we recommend you bring a completed application and credit report(s) with you to the open house.
