The Application Process

How Do I Apply For A Unit?

The application process may contain a number of steps, depending on the individual's circumstances. Each step is outlined below:

Step 1: Decide Upon a Unit

View the model suite and/or the unit you desire to rent. This is best accomplished by contacting the Property Office of the building where you wish to rent. In most cases, daytime, Saturday, and evening appointments can be accommodated. Once you have decided upon an available unit the documentation will need to be completed. Units are rented on a first come, first served basis and cannot be held pending paperwork.

See our properties page for further details on individual properties.


Step 2: The Application

Complete the entire Rental Application process by printing and completing the forms below:

The completed forms need to be submitted to the Property Office for the building where you wish to rent. Please find those addresses through our properties page or at the top of the printed application. At this time you will be required to submit the Contract Deposit, also known as Last Month's Rent.


Step 3: Acceptance / Decline of the Application

The application is reviewed by the Administration Office and one of 3 outcomes may occur:

Accepted

The majority of completed applications are accepted after undergoing income, current/previous Landlord, and credit history checks.

Requires Additional Information

In some cases an application may require additional information or clarification. The applicant will be contacted and given a period of time to provide the required information.

Declined

On occasion an application may be declined. You will be advised and the Contract Deposit will be returned.

Step 4: Signing the Lease

Once the application is accepted the lease will need to be signed. The Property Office will contact you and arrange an appointment for this task. In addition, if you desire the rent to be directly debited from your account each month, this will need to be set up:

Pre-Authorized Debit Plan Form
On-Line Banking Form


Step 5: Ready to Move

There are a number of things to consider when getting ready to move in:

• At least 2 weeks prior to the move in date, hydro should be arranged if you are moving into a building where it is rent + hydro.
• A moving elevator and time should be arranged a minimum of 5 business days in advance. Be aware that the sooner you book the elevator, the best selection of day/time will be available.

Step 6: Picking Up the Keys

The keys will be available on the possession date as indicated on your lease. However, an appointment to meet and obtain the keys should be set up with the Property Office at least 2 weeks in advance. Setting this up early will ensure you know the time that the unit is expected to be ready for you and reduce delays or unexpected surprises. Please be aware that the Property Office can only accommodate key pick up after hours and on Saturday by appointment. We are closed on Sunday.
