The “How To’s” to Rent from CRMC

Follow these 6 EASY steps!

  1. Review the property list and choose which houses or apartments you would like to rent. Please note: the lease dates start in MAY or AUGUST. You may knock on the door and ask the current residents to show you their unit. If the resident says no, please call our office and we will arrange a showing. Please be courteous to our residents – it’s their home.
  2. Each member of your group needs to fill out a rental application. Additional copies may be picked up at our office.
  3. Fill out your Top Three housing choices on the bottom of the rental application.
  4. Drop off a completed set of rental applications for your ENTIRE GROUP at our office.
  5. There is a $50 application/processing fee per applicant when you submit your application. This fee will be refunded on applications not approved.
  6. If we approve your applications, you will have 48 HOURS to:
    1. Pay one half of the first month’s rent as a deposit to hold the property.
    2. Schedule an appointment to sign your lease.
    3. The second half of the first month’s rent will be due at your lease signing. This deposit will be applied to your first month’s rent. If you fail to sign the lease, the deposit will be forfeited. Should the above conditions not be met within the 48 hours, the property will be offered to the next interested party.
