5. We require in our leases that tenants obtain and carry a policy of renter’s insurance with a minimum of $250,000 in liability coverage. A renter’s insurance policy typically costs $200-$400 annually depending on the coverage choices you make for your personal property. If your application is approved, you will be required to provide proof of renter’s insurance prior to move in.
We review and evaluate applications for properties on a first come basis. Upon receipt of the application, we will run a credit report and check references. Assuming everything meets the owner’s specifications, we will then send you a lease to review and sign. Let me know if you have any questions.
