Instructions for Viewing Properties:
Our office hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm. For any of our properties that are not listed as being shown by appointment only, prospective tenants can rent out the keys to view available units. We offer 24-hour key rentals between the hours of 9:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday, and daily key rentals before 2pm on Fridays. Key rentals are $20 cash (refundable when the key is returned.) If you cannot rent a key during business hours, you can send a trusted friend or family member to rent the key in your place.
You may want to contact our office ahead of time before renting out a key, to make sure that there is not a pending application on the property you are interested in. Please understand that Brown & Glenn Realty Co. does not accept any applications until the prospective tenant has thoroughly viewed the exterior and interior of the property they are interested in.
Instructions for Applications and Leasing:
Once a prospective tenant has viewed the exterior and interior of the property they are interested in, they are then eligible to apply for that property. Applications can be accessed on our website, or are available in our realty office. The cost of the application is $50.00 per applicant. All funds prior to tenancy must be paid in the form of a cashiers check or money order - please, no exceptions.
Please carefully read the instructions before completing the rental application. Applications must be thoroughly, neatly, and completely filled out before we will process them. We must have copies of the applicant's ID, Social Security card, and current paystub at the time that the application is turned in. We will pull the applicant's credit report, criminal report, and verify their income. If you have an unpaid eviction on your record, owe another landlord or realty company any monies, or have drug and/or assault charges on your criminal record, we will be unable to approve your application. We do allow unmarried persons and roommates to apply jointly for our properties. The lease holders' gross income must equal at least three times the monthly rent.
The application process takes approximately 1-3 days to complete. Once your application is approved, we will make an appointment with you to sign your lease agreement. Please be prepared to pay the balance of your security deposit within 3 days of approval. Once we approve an application, the longest we can hold a property for you is 3-4 weeks. Please also understand that Brown & Glenn Realty Co's residential lease agreement is a legal binding document, so tenants will need to be prepared to honor the 12-month contract in its entirety.
The tenants will be responsible for paying for all necessary utilities upon their move-in date. If a tenant moves in on any other day other than the first of a month, they will pay a pro-rated rental amount, based on a daily rate. Again, all application fees, binders, deposits, and first month's rent must be paid in certified funds (cashiers check or money order), but once a tenant has completed their first month of tenancy, they can then pay in personal check. Money orders and cashiers checks are also still accepted. We do not accept cash or credit card payments for rent. Tenants will be required to pay their rent by 5:00pm on the 5th of every month. (Important additional rental terms will be discussed at the time of lease-signing.)
