We require all potential tenants to visit the property in which they are interested prior to the application process. Individuals must go to the rentals tab on the MECA webpage, select Schedule Showing on the property they are interested in, and you will be directed to our scheduling website. Fill out the information requested, and you will be given a temporarily code to access the property.
To proceed with the application process, each individual must be 18 years of age and complete an application and submit it with a $50.00 non-refundable fee per adult. The application must be submitted online and paid through the website.
Until an application fee is received, your application will not be processed. In the event there is an application in place on the property you have selected, we will notify you and you will have the option to select another available property.
Along with the application and fee, applicants must be able to upload a valid driver’s license or picture ID, a social security card, and proof of employment and income (last two pay stubs) or tax returns if self employed and past rental history. We will then verify this information as well as perform a credit check and background check.
The application must be completed in its entirety with all of the appropriate information. You must provide prior landlord names, email addresses (preferred) or telephone numbers. Applications will not be considered if we cannot contact your current and prior landlord(s) or verify mortgage if applicable.
The application process usually takes a few days to process depending response time on verifications. Once the application is approved, the applicant has 48 hours to sign the lease and pay the security deposit. The security deposit is typically equal to one month’s rent on approved applications; however, a higher security deposit may be required under certain conditions. The security deposit as well as the first month’s prorated rent must be in the form of certified check or money order only. Cash is not accepted. The move-in date has to be within two weeks from the application approval date unless negotiated differently.
All applications submitted become the property of MECA Realty.
Typically, leases are for 1 year but in some cases can be negotiated.
Pets are allowed upon the discretion of the property owner. If a pet is allowed, a non-refundable pet fee of $250 will be charged. We do not accept Pit bulls.
