You are encouraged to apply; however, you are not required to if you feel you may be declined based on the above criteria. A non-refundable fee (specified on the application) will be assessed to process the application. Fees go towards reporting agency reports, time spent calling past and present landlords, employers and other references. Questions regarding the application process can be addressed to Blue Summit Realty.

Each person over the age of 18 must submit a separate rental application. Applications for all residents must be submitted in order for the application to be considered complete. Prospective residents will be notified as soon as possible regarding their application approval or denial. If your application is approved and you’re offered a lease, it must be signed within 24 hours.

Once your application is approved we will collect 25% of the first month’s rent as a non-refundable fee to hold the property. This will be a credit towards your future rent payment. If you decide to not follow through with the lease for any reason, Blue Summit Realty LLC will retain this fee.
