Background: The applicant (referred to as "Applicant" whether one or more) signing below submits this Application for property rental to Mountain-n-Plains, Inc., a Colorado corporation ("MnP"), as agent for the owner ("Owner") of the property (referred to as "Property" whether one or more) which Applicant wishes to lease. The term "Resident" refers to anyone occupying the Property under a fully signed lease.
A Guarantor will be required if an Applicant has a parent/guardian listed as a major source of income, does not on a monthly basis earn at least 2 1/2 times the monthly rent amount in stable & verifiable income, has been self-employed for less than 3 years, does not have a previous landlord reference (that is not a family member/friend) or a lack of credit history. If Applicant is unable to obtain a Guarantor when one is required the Applicant will be denied. A Guarantor will not be allowed if an Applicant has a credit score below 600.
Submitting an Application: MnP accepts all applications and leases for all properties on a first come, first served basis. A Property will be put on hold for the first Applicant who submits all fully completed applications, all application fees and earnest money to MnP. If the application is not fully completed and another application is presented on the Property, the second application will be accepted as first. All Applicants are required to view a Property prior to submitting an application. Applications will not be accepted on properties sight unseen. All persons the age of 18 or older intending to occupy the Property must apply and be approved to occupy the Property. A copy of each Applicant’s photo ID must be submitted with each application.
If Applicant is required to get a guarantor, the Applicant must submit a completed guarantor form (with guarantor application fee) within 48 hours of submitting application or the Property will be put back on the rental market. All guarantors must be a parent, guardian of Applicant, or another member of Applicant’s family. Once an application has been approved, the Applicant agrees to sign a lease within 48 hours of notification of approval.
Fees & Deposit: An application fee of $40.00 must accompany each application. This fee is non-refundable. If Applicant is required to get a guarantor, a $40 guarantor application fee is also required. MnP requires half of the first month’s rent as earnest money to accompany an application. Please submit your application fees and earnest money in separate payments. A full refund of earnest money will be returned if rental application is not approved. You cannot withdraw your application once you are approved without forfeiting your earnest money. A convenience fee at the time of any electronic transaction will be charged and said fee will be non-refundable.
Once approved, earnest money will be applied toward the security deposit. The security deposit, including a non-refundable carpet cleaning and lock re-key fee, is equal to the monthly rental amount. If a pet is allowed, an additional deposit is required. Rent, deposit balance, carpet/lock fee, and pet deposits must be paid in full upon Lease start.
