Frequently Asked Questions
We have listed some common questions our prospective residents ask. If you are not able to find the answer to your question below, please contact us at 218-591-0515 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do we apply? Do we need a deposit?
We do background/credit checks on all prospective tenants. We do not accept anyone with any felonies. The cost is $30 per person, done at the time of application. You can pay online on our website. We also require one month’s rent as a security deposit. This is due when the lease is signed. You can pay us online with the Paylease link, or by check, money order or cash.
Do we need to put the utilities in our name? How do we do it?
In most cases, you do need to put the utilities in your name. Minnesota Power (electric bill) usually can be done over the phone. Comfort Systems (water and gas bill) can have you go to their office between the hours of 9am-4pm. They are located on Garfield Ave, (by Goodwill) they will require you to fill out an application or you can also apply online (download the application here), and usually need you to give a deposit. They will give you a receipt, you need to hold onto this as it is proof to us, and you need it to receive your keys.
You can switch utilities into your names days/weeks prior to your move-in date. When required, ALL utilities need to be in your name BEFORE you will receive your keys.
Do we need to mow our lawn and snow shovel?
We take care of ALL yard maintenance in the summer. Tenants are responsible for snow removal.
Do you allow pets?
Depending upon the house, it must be prior approved. Dogs are $25/month and cats $15/month extra, when approved. We do not allow dogs under the age of 1. There are also some breeds of dogs that we don't allow. Please check with us before thinking of getting a pet.
Do you require renters insurance?
No, but we recommend it. Our insurance doesn’t cover your personal property. If you would like to insure your own property, we have included a link to State Farm. However, you may use any company.
