Tenant Frequently Asked Questions

Applicant FAQs+

Can you hold a place before I apply?
No.  You must view, apply and be approved for a place to be held.  If you have been notified of your approval, your security deposit becomes a holding deposit and is non-refundable until the lease agreement is signed for the property you have applied for.  It is assumed that approved applicants will move into a property as soon as the property is available.

Do I pay first month’s rent and last month’s rent with my security deposit?
No.  MAXIM 4000 only requires the minimal security deposit & all applicable application fees at the time of application.

How old do you have to be to apply?
You must be at least 18 years old to apply (unless you have proof of emancipation) & you will be required to have a co-signer.

Is the deposit refundable?
If you have been denied based on MAXIM 4000’s application criteria the deposit will be returned to you in full.   After approval of the application by MAXIM 4000 the deposit acts as a holding deposit until you move in to the property and sign the lease agreement, if you fail to enter into a rental/lease agreement, applicant FORFEITS the full security deposit. 

Who needs a cosigner?
MAXIM 4000 requires each applicant to meet qualifying criteria.  If an applicant does not meet the criteria, a co-signer / guarantor may be added to improve an applicant’s ability to qualify for a property.  Depending on how an applicant qualifies, a consigner may be required regardless of age.  All applicants under the age of 21 are required to have a cosigner.  

You have a property I want to rent. How do I apply?
First step is to make an appointment to view the property or have a representative view the property on your behalf because MAXIM 4000 will not rent a property sight unseen.  If you are still interested in the property after the viewing, then you will need to obtain the application packet and follow all instructions provided in order to apply.
