WELCOME!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit us. It is an honor to be considered for your future home, and we look forward to working with you. We know that choosing a place to live is a big decision, so we will do all we can to make this transition as easy for you as possible.

To apply, you need to submit a thoroughly completed application. We also need a copy of your driver’s license or ID. We can make a copy in our office or you may take a clear picture with your phone and email it to LoveLiving@BelhavenResidential.com. We also need proof of income, so you should submit any of the following:

If a Holding Deposit is being used to reserve a specific unit for you, then you until 5:00 pm the day after you pay the Holding Deposit to submit all the information we need, else a decision about whether you qualify cannot be made and the Holding Deposit will be forfeited and the unit will be placed back on the market. Once we have all information needed to make a decision, we will need approximately 2 business days to process it and notify you regarding our decision.

When our decision regarding your approval has been made, we will contact you. At that time, we will discuss the lease term you want, a move-in date and the amount of your prorated rent. Keep in mind that the market rate advertised is for a 12 month lease. Should you desire a 9 month lease, your rate will be market + $20/month. Should you desire a 6 month lease, your rate will be market + $50/month. On the day you move into your new home, you will sign your lease, pay your prorate, and pick up your new keys.

Rest assured…our team is waiting to serve you! Coming to Belhaven Residential is like coming home. Are you ready to come home?
