We are so pleased that you have considered a Statewide Enterprises, Inc. property for your next home! To help you get started in the process, please review the below frequently-asked questions and answers – we look forward to welcoming you to one of our communities in the near future.
The application fee is $40.00 per applicant. That fee is non-refundable, regardless of the outcome of your application. All of those individuals who are 18 years of age or older and plan to reside in the unit must submit their own application, without exception. Cosigners submit the same application as potential residents, however they will select the, “I am applying as a co-signer/guarantor for another applicant. (I will not be living on the property)” option on the first page of the application. Applications for multiple people can be linked manually by the property manager – be sure to communicate the names of all individuals submitting an application with you so that they can be linked and reviewed together.
The credit report that we use is a “soft inquiry” into your score – meaning that it will NOT affect your score. We use the Equifax FICO score – if you are able to provide proof of a valid (within the last 3 months) report, that includes a criminal background check, we would be happy to review. If, upon review of the presented report, it is determined that it does not provide the required information, we would proceed with running the credit check as normal.
The length of time it takes to review the application varies, depending on whether or not the application was submitted complete – meaning all of the supporting documentation was included in the initial submission. We strive to provide an answer to you within 2 business days (or less), assuming all of the required documentation is on-hand. In order to expedite the process, have your photo identification and proof of income ready to attach to your application submission. Reach out to rental references in advance and ask for their assistance in providing a speedy response to our property manager’s inquiry for rental verification.
The fridge rental prices are as follows: 10 cu ft: $25 per month (stainless steel $35 per month), 15 cu ft: $30 month (stainless steel $40 per month). Refrigerators are only ordered upon confirmation of the fully-executed lease and payment of all move in funds. Therefore the refrigerator may be delivered following one’s actual move-in date. Typically, the turnaround time is approximately one week. In order to expedite delivery, sign your lease and pay all your move in funds in advance of your move-in date so that the order can be placed. Refrigerators can only be added at the start of a lease. They cannot be removed or added once your tenancy has started.
Yes, a sample lease may be viewed here.
We do not allow subleasing in any of our buildings.
Our standard lease agreement is a 12-month lease. We can offer 6-month leases with an additional monthly surcharge to the rent ($100 extra per month for rents below $1500 and $200 extra per month for rents $1500 and higher).
Our current list of restricted breeds is as follows: Akita, Alaskan Malamutes, American Staffordshire Terriers, Boxers, Chow Chows, Dalmatians, Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Huskies, Pit Bulls, Presa Canario, Rottweilers, St. Bernards, and Wolf Hybrids.
In order to approve the accommodation for acceptance of a dog at a building in which dogs are not accepted, the company requires a letter from a medical provider stating that the applicant has a disability and that the dog is a required accommodation of said disability. Please note that, in most cases, we would not consider a generic ESA certificate as sufficient documentation to provide this accommodation. The same documentation listed above is required for any other disability accommodation that is needed by an applicant.
Assuming that the proper documentation as described above has been provided to the corporate office and the accommodation has been approved, your comfort dog of a restricted breed could be approved under the following conditions: (1) References from previous rental property management vouching for the non-aggressive nature of the dog with strangers, or (2) An in-person meeting with the Property Manager and your dog in which the Property Manager is able to interact with the dog and can vouch for the non-aggressive nature of the dog with strangers. If you have a trained, certified service dog, the above two conditions may not be necessary. Please contact the corporate office directly to further discuss your specific situation.
No. The liability insurance that is offered through our company strictly satisfies the liability coverage required in the lease agreement. This would protect the building in the case of damage resulting from negligent acts of the tenant (i.e. fires, flooding, leaks, etc.).
Yes. Roost Renter’s Insurance is available to our residents, although the price varies on a number of factors. Speak to the Property Manager for more information on that option. You can also read more on that here.
