Owners are the determining factor in whether a property is pet friendly or not. At this time we have less than 1% of our units that accept pets. Those units have long term tenants in them.
We do not keep wait lists. We manage over 700 rental units and there is no way for us to manage a wait list for all the different properties. Our website is always current, it is updated daily. We suggest you download the application off our site and have it all filled out and ready to go so when you see something on the site you can bring in your application and fees right away.
We have over 700 units in the Kearney and surrounding area. We have apartment complexes, homes, duplexes, condos and townhouses and commercial properties.
This varies from property to property based on the owner’s policy.
We do not allow smoking inside any unit and more and more complexes are becoming smoke free in regards to smoking anywhere on the property.
Grills are not allowed on any balcony or wood deck. Grills are only allowed at properties in which the grill can be used 10 feet away from any structure. All tenants are encouraged to have Renters Insurance if they are going to rent or use a grill.
Security deposit is equal to one month’s rent. Non-Refundable pet deposits are equal to 25% of one month’s rent per the Tenant Landlord Act.
Every adult over the age of 18 must be on the lease and fill out an application. The application can be downloaded from our website or picked up at our office. We will do income verification, landlord verification and run a public records check. Each application will pay the application fee which covers our cost for the public records check. This process can take as little as 24 hours or as long as 48 depending how quickly previous landlords and employers return our calls.
The deposit will be returned to the Tenant subject to the following provisions: (1) Inspection of the leased property reveals that Premises are in condition required by this lease. (2) Tenant must return all keys. (3) The Tenant must have vacated the Premises and cleaned said property to the best of his/her ability. The carpet will be professionally cleaned and will be taken out of deposit. Tenant may not utilize the security deposit as rent nor shall he deduct the deposit from the last month’s rent nor require the Landlord to indemnify itself from said sum of money or any part thereof with respect to any particular violation or default of Tenant. In the event that any part of the said security deposit shall have been utilized by Landlord in accordance with the terms hereof or applicable law, the Tenant shall, upon the delivery notice of same, immediately deposit with the Landlord the amount so applied by Landlord so that the Landlord shall have the full deposit on hand at all times during the term of this lease and any renewal thereof or holding over. In the event of the sale of the property upon which this premises is situated or the transfer or assignment by the Landlord of this Lease, the Landlord shall have the right to transfer said security deposit to the transferee and Landlord shall be considered released from all liability for the return of the security deposit, and Tenant shall look solely to the new Landlord for the return of his security deposit. It is agreed that the foregoing shall apply to every transfer or assignment made on the security deposit to a new Landlord.
Tenant is aware that all security deposits will be commingled with other funds of the owner and may be used in the operation of the property. They will be not separately maintained in the trust account. Upon termination of the tenancy the money may be applied to the payment of damage, which the landlord has suffered by reason of the tenants’ noncompliance with the rental agreement. The balance, if any, and a written itemization, shall be delivered or mailed to the Tenant within 14 days after demand and designation of the location where payment will be mailed. Under no circumstances can said deposit be applied by tenant to pay rents.
A thirty day (30) written notice to the Lessor is required before moving out of the Premises. Without this Thirty (30) day notice, the said deposit may be retained. Within fourteen (14) days after Tenant has vacated the premises, made demand for Tenant’s security deposit and notified Landlord of the location where payment may be made or mailed, Landlord shall furnish Tenant, by personal delivery or by first-class mail, postage prepaid, a copy of an itemized statement indicating the basis for, and the amount of, any security received and the disposition of the security and shall return any remaining portion of the security to Tenant.
Landlord is not obligated to return Tenant’s security deposit or give Tenant a written description of damages and charges until Tenant provides Landlord a written demand for said security deposit and notifies Landlord of Tenant’s forwarding address for the purpose of refunding the security deposit.
Leases are 12 months long.
We do have some owners that allow month to month leases. Generally, due to the extra wear and tear that these types of leases cause, there is an additional charge on this type of lease. Once a tenant has fulfilled their first year, very few owners will allow it to roll into a month to month lease. They will generally renew with shorter time frames.
