Pet-friendly suites are available at Fernwood Estates (cats only), Arbutus Place, The Groves and Mayfield Gardens. We do require a pet deposit in addition to the security deposit which are ½ month rent each.

Q. What things do you consider when approving applications?
The application approval process involves:

  • Verification of income sources, a credit check to see what monthly payments the applicant has, as well as if there is a history of items being sent to collections. Once the income is verified and the monthly payments are subtracted from the income a calculation is done to determine the likelihood of the applicant being able to afford the apartment moving forward.
  • Rental references are also contacted to determine if rent was paid on time, if there were NSFs, as well as if there was any damage done to your prior residences.
Q. What if I am a student and do not have income to support the rent, but have student loans and support from family members while attending school?
We would accept a co-signer form to support the rental payments if you are a student or a young person entering the workforce with no rental history.
Q. When is rent due?
Rent is due on the first business day of the month. Late fees will be applied after the third business day of the month in accordance with the residential tenancy guidelines.
