Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am interested in one of your rental properties. What is the process for moving into this property?
A: First, you will contact us about viewing the rental property. Once you have viewed the desired rental property, you will be able to complete our online application. We want to be sure that you like both the inside and outside of the property you will be moving into.
Q: How do I schedule a showing?
A: You may either call us at (206) 932-1090, submit your request through our website, or visit our office to schedule your property showing. Also, be prepared to provide us with the most convenient day and time for your upcoming property visit.
Q: When are showings available to schedule?
A: We are available to show properties on Monday through Friday, between 9:30am and 5:30pm. We will work with you to accommodate your showing time preference, but please consider having a couple alternate times as a backup.
Q: Can I submit an application to be pre-screened?
A: No, unfortunately we do not pre-screen applicants for approval.
Q: How much is your application fee?
A: Our application fee is $20.00 per person. This is non-refundable.
Q: We are a married couple; do we pay one application fee?
A: No, the application fee applies to only one person. Therefore, each person over the age of 18 must complete an application and be placed on the lease.
Q: What is the application process exactly?
A: Our application process begins with you filling out our online application form. Once completed, and your application fee has been paid, we will run a credit and background check on all applicants. Verification of rental history and employment will also be determined.
Q: How long does your application process take?
A: We do our best to be complete and thorough with our application process, and our standard processing time is within 24-48 hours.
Q: How do I secure the property so that no one else gets it before me?
A: Once your application has been approved, you will have 48 hours to turn in your Holding Fee. We will not allow anyone else to place money down on this property during that time. The Holding Fee is equal to one month's rent and must be either a cashier's check or money order, made payable to Cayce & Gain.
Q: Is my Holding Fee refundable?
A: Your Holding Fee is refundable if a change in the conditions of tenancy occurs after we receive your Holding Fee. Your Holding Fee money will be applied towards your total move-in costs. However, if the applicant(s) choose to withdraw their application, your Holding Fee is non-refundable.
Q: What does it cost to move-in?
A: Move-in costs include your first month's Rent and Security Deposit (possibly pet deposits and HOA fees associated with the property). As each property is different, please review the individual web page listing for that property's Rent and Security Deposit amount. All deposits are refundable, less a standard cleaning fee, if the property condition is the same as when it was moved into.
Q: What is your pet policy?
A: The acceptance of pet(s) varies by property; please review the individual web page listing for that individual property description.
Q: How much is the pet deposit?
A: Our pet deposit is $500.00 per cat and $500.00 per dog. Your pet deposit is fully refundable, less $50.00 per pet standard, and any charges warranted from the tenancy.
Q: Who pays utilities?
A: Please consult the individual web page listing to determine who pays for the utilities. In most cases, tenants are responsible.
Q: How many square feet is the property?
A: Unfortunately, we do not take property measurements due to legalities. However, if the square footage is known, it will be indicated on the web listing.
Q: What is the process if I would like to move-out?
A: We must receive a written notice to vacate at least twenty (20) days prior to your move out date. You will be able to submit this online via our tenant website portal, if you prefer. Then, on the day of your move out, please return all your rental property keys. Once we receive your keys, this will terminate your tenancy.
Q: Do any of your rental come furnished?
A: No, unfortunately we do not offer any rentals that come furnished.
