What do I do if I have a maintenance concern?
Residents can submit real-time and detailed maintenance requests with photos through our resident portal. The Management office will receive the request and take the appropriate action immediately.
I see that you require a full credit report and score upon application, what is the minimum Credit Score?
While we review an application in its entirety to determine the strength of an applicant, we require a minimum FICO credit score of 670 or higher from our applicants. Exceptions may apply and Co-signors are welcome.
What is the minimum income requirement?
While we review an application in its entirety to determine the strength of an applicant, we require a maximum income-to-rent ratio of 35%. For example, if the monthly rent is $1500, this would equate to $18,000 per year and would, therefore, require a minimum documented combined household income of $51,428 ($18,000 divided by 35% = $51,428). Exceptions may apply and Co-signors are welcome.
Will you accept a co-signor?
If you do not have established credit, or, do not meet the income or credit score requirements mentioned above an eligible co-signer will enable you to still qualify for the apartment if the co-signer does meet the requirements. We gladly accept co-signors who demonstrate the minimum credit and income requirements. Applicants should submit their Co-signor information on the rental application.
How much is the Security Deposit?
Security deposit is usually 1.5 times the monthly rent. For example, if the monthly rent is $1,500, then the Security Deposit will be $2,250. Security deposit amounts can vary by town and by building, so please ask your leasing specialist for more information on the required security deposit for the particular apartment you are interested in.
I see that you advertise “Security deposit free living”, what does this mean?
RentJerseyShore.com offers a program for tenants to qualify to be able to replace the traditional security deposit with an insurance policy in-lieu of security deposit”. Please ask our rental representative for more information.
Can I walk to the beach from my building?
We get this question a lot. YES!!! Our properties are centrally and well located and always within a close walking distance to the beach.
I smoke, do you allow smokers in your buildings?
Our properties are all strictly non-smoking. This is a key feature of our communities and likewise is a key element to screening our residents. There are several buildings and management companies in the area that do not enforce non-smoking policies, and we encourage you to seek them out.
I smoke, but I do not smoke inside my apartment. Is this OK?
Unfortunately, no. The language in our leases is specific and clear regarding smoking by any tenant or guest of a tenant anywhere on the property, including inside the apartment, hallways, common areas, and exterior of the building.
I smoke, but I am going to quit soon. Is this OK?
