Pre-Leasing for the fall 2024 semester
Homes that have been identified as preleasing a properties that currently occupied, but because of lease expirations an proximity to the various universites around Lubbock, these properties are ideal for those that need to be near the university or need lease that start between June and August 15 and need lease terms to end the following summer.
Each property’s availability date is listed on our site. We offer move-in dates on or within 30 days after this availability date. For earlier move-in requests than stated, please reach out to us for confirmation, as we need to coordinate with the current occupants.
Holding a property
Upon approval, signing a lease and paying an amount equivalent to one month’s rent is required to secure the property. This payment will fulfill your deposit requirement. Alternatively, we accept RHINO in place of a traditional deposit. In this case, the initial month’s rent will be allocated towards your rental charges.
We prioritize the most qualified applicant in our selection process. If applicants are equally qualified, preference is given to the first complete application group (including all guarantors). Prompt submission of all necessary documents by all applicants is essential. We recommend using the shared application feature for efficiency. If required, we can assist with grouping applications.
Note: Application volume typically increases from May to July, potentially leading to delays in approval notifications. Generally, approvals are issued on the same day as a completed application, but this may extend to 48 business hours during peak periods.
Please be sure of your move-in date before confirmation, as changes can be challenging due to high demand.
In instances where we cannot meet our standard turnover time, a cleaning waiver might be offered. If the property is not cleaned, you can opt for a delayed move-in with prorated rent, or accept a cleaning credit ($.12 per square foot), making you responsible for the cleaning. This waiver is also applicable for early move-in requests, with the greater of the cleaning credit or prorated rent being credited.
Existing Tenant Renewal Policy
Before finalizing your application, we will verify with the current residents about their renewal intentions. If the existing tenant chooses to renew, they will be given priority. Should this occur, we will refund all application fees to the approved application group or offer an option to transfer the application to another property.
