I want a lease! What do I do now?

  1. Look at the information for each of the Cardinal Properties buildings on this website and decide where you would like to live.
  2. Pets are generally not allowed, but some selected apartments will accommodate one cat for an additional deposit. Please inquire.
  3. Read all Leasing Information, including the Leasing Addendum to make sure that you can accept the terms and conditions.
  4. Consult your schedule and the Showing Times page of this website.
  5. Call to make sure that there are units available in the building you would like to live in, to get the most current pricing, and to make an appointment to view an apartment. You can find contact information and addresses in the Contact Us page of this site.
  6. Download, read and print copies of the Application, and Rental Criteria Acknowledgement, from the Forms page. There is a $40.00 application fee per person to apply to rent an apartment.
  7. Make sure that all roommates have read and understand all of the forms, terms and conditions. You may want to confirm commitments from everyone by pooling your money for the first months rent and the damage deposit because you will not want to be responsible for anyone's rent share if they back out on you prior to the end of your annual lease.
  8. Fill out the Application and Acceptance Criteria Acknowledgement form completely, putting valid information in each blank or noting that it does not apply to you (N/A), with a brief explanation. Filling out each form completely will expedite the process of renting your apartment.
  9. Bring the completed forms with you when you view the apartment at your appointment and be prepared to write a non-refundable check for your first months rent, as well as pay a $40 per person application fee. Your damage deposit, an amount equal to your first months rent will be due prior to recieving keys. These forms and checks may be mailed in if you will not be viewing your apartment prior to moving in (For instance, if you are from out of state.).
  10. After you move in, remember to use the Community Services page of this site and to download forms such as an Extension Of Lease application when you need them.  You can also make Maintenance Requests easily from this site.
