Q: How much is the application fee and is it refundable?
A: The application fee is $65 for each person over the age of 18, and it is non-refundable. We strongly
encourage that you give us a call before you apply so that we can tell you how many people are ahead of
you in the application process.
Q: Can you hold a place before I apply?
A: We are unable to hold properties without payment of a Holding Fee.
Q: Do I pay first month’s rent and last month’s rent with my security deposit?
A: Once you are approved, you have 72 hours to pay the Holding Fee. Once the Holding Fee
is paid, you have 14 days to move into your new home. There is a $125 non-refundable administrative fee due prior to move-in.
Q: How old do you have to be to apply?
A: You must be at least 18 years old to apply.
Q: Will I get my Security Deposit back When I Move Out?
A: It is our goal to refund 100% of your deposit, however refunding the deposit depends on the condition in
which the home is left once you move out and whether you have any unpaid charges. Upon move-out, we have 30
days from the end of your lease to return your security deposit. Some cases may take up to up to 60 days to
refund but we will send you an interim accounting statement with an explanation.
Q: Is the Holding Fee Refundable?
A: As part of our policy here at PPA Properties, LLC, we require the first month’s rent as a holding fee to secure
the home after an applicant has been approved. Once the holding fee has been received, the home will be taken off
the market during the duration of the time we get the house ready, we prepare your lease documents and await your
signature. Should you back out for any or no reason at all, the holding fee is non-refundable based upon the number of days,
the house has been off the market, along with a one-time administrative fee of $125.
Q: Who needs a cosigner?
A: Cosigners are accepted only for students. The cosigner
must have a credit score of at least 650 and meet the income requirement for their current home plus the amount of the rent.
Q: You have a property that I want to rent. How do I apply?
A: All of our applications are processed online.
Q: How do I pay rent?

Q: How do I submit a maintenance request?
A: All non-emergency maintenance requests must be submitted through your Online Tenant Portal. Please give us as much
information as possible and if photos are applicable, please upload those as well. For emergency maintenance, please

Q: I want to get a pet. What Is Your Pet Policy?
A: EVERY individual must confirm with the property manager that pets are permitted on the property. Then, complete a third-party screening and review process through petscreening.com. This essential step helps us document your acknowledgment of our pet-related policies, compile a record of any pets you have, and validate the authenticity and accuracy of the provided information.
Please be aware, however, that not all our rental properties are pet-friendly. It is mandatory to seek prior approval from PPA Properties, LLC before bringing any pet into your rental unit to confirm if the specific property owner allows pets.
Although there are breed restrictions in place, which include Pit Bull, Doberman Pincher, Rottweiler, Chow Chow, Staffordshire Terrier, and Bull Mastiff, please note that certain property owners might be open to making exceptions. Such exceptions, however, need to be explicitly agreed upon before the lease signing.
Regarding pet weight and quantity restrictions, we allow a maximum of three pets per unit, each not exceeding 80 lbs. A non-refundable pet fee of $200 per pet is applicable at the time of registration. Some properties may charge a monthly $25-35 per pet fee instead of the upfront fee.
Additionally, PPA Properties, LLC reserves the right to perform at least one pet inspection annually for all pet-approved units. An inspection fee of $75 will be charged and added to your tenant ledger.
