Rental Applicant FAQ

  • Do you accept Section 8?

    Some of our homes do accept Section 8. If there is a particular property you are interested in and would like to inquire whether or not it accepts Section 8, please contact us.
  • Do you allow pets?

    Our firm is pet-friendly and many of our homes do allow pets. However, the properties we manage are owned by different homeowners and this answer is ultimately provided by the owner of the home. If there is a specific property that interests you and you would like to inquire whether or not pets are allowed, please make an inquiry by providing the property address, animal type, breed type and quantity to info@parkaveproperties.com. Please note that due to insurance regulations, guard dog breeds are not accepted. You can do a web search for "guard dog breeds" for a list of breeds considered to be in this category. We strongly recommend that you inquire and obtain pet approval prior to submitting an application since application fees are non-refundable.

    Our pet policy is as follows:

    - Non-refundable pet fee range of $300-$400 per pet due with move in funds. Pet rent may be applicable.
    - 3 pet limit per household
    - Guard dog breeds are not permitted

    Rental applicants with household pets or service/companion/assistive animals are required to submit a per pet application through a third-party pet screening vendor as part of our rental application process. No smoking is allowed at any of our managed properties.
  • Do you offer short term leases?

    Our standard lease agreement runs for 12 months. However, there are instances when one of our homeowners will accept a shorter term lease. If there is a particular property you are interested in and would like to inquire if a short term lease is available, please contact us.
  • Do you require Renters Insurance?

    Tenants are not required by Park Avenue Properties but are strongly encouraged to obtain Renters Insurance to protect their household goods. Their decision, yes or no, does not impact our Firm or the homeowner / landlord. Although Renters Insurance is recommended, it is not enforced or tracked by Park Avenue Properties.

  • There are a couple of your rental properties that I am interested in. Do I have to submit separate applications for each of these properties?

    Qualified applications are valid for 30 days from date of submission within our firm. If you submit an application for one of our properties and are qualified to rent that property, your application may be able to be used (within 30 days of submission) toward another available property in our inventory that is within the same price range as the original property you applied to rent. Restrictions may apply. Please contact us to discuss.
  • What are the application fees?

    Standard application fees are $60 per adult applicant / guarantor but may vary by property. Review your property's application for application fee rate. Application fees are Non-Refundable.
  • What are the application requirements and how long does the application process take?

    Park Avenue Properties runs credit, criminal and eviction background checks on all adult applicants / guarantors. Each adult applicant / guarantor age 18 and over is required to submit an application to be considered for our rental properties. A non-refundable application fee per adult applicant / guarantor is due at the time the application is submitted. In addition to the online application and fee, the following items are to be submitted by each adult applicant / guarantor: copy of valid drivers license / photo ID, copies of two most recent pay stubs or a copy of most recent 1040 (in the event of self-employment), an employment offer letter (in the event of relocating to the area and / or beginning new employment). It is recommended that applicants contact their current landlord (if renting) to notify that Park Avenue Properties will be inquiring about a rental reference.

    If Park Avenue Properties has obtained all requested information from all adult applicants / guarantors, the average turn-around time to complete the application process is 2 business days.
