At the time of lease execution, this deposit shall be applied to the required security deposit.
  • Any exceptions to our company’s criteria will need to be submitted in writing to the rental agent for presentation to the landlord for consideration. If approval is then given for such exceptions, additional security, agreements and or advance rent payments may be required.
