“Pre-leasing” is a process for new potential residents to apply for and pay a deposit on an apartment/home before it is available for viewing. Pre-leasing typically applies to properties that are in the process of vacating (i.e. the previous tenant is still living there). We do not show an apartment/home until it’s ready for a new resident to move-in. The advantage to pre-leasing a property is it allows you to secure an apartment/home before anyone else has a chance to do so. Photos of the property may be provided before the unit is ready for move-in. The tour feature is not available until our Mynd team has inspected and approved the property for move-in. The steps to pre-lease are simple and the same for available properties.
- A leasing representative will let you know the date that the property is expected to be available and you can discuss your move-in timeframe with them.
- Complete an application and pay application fees.
- If approved, we will notify you and require a deposit to hold the property.
- We will send you a lease to sign after your deposit is received.
If you decide not to move forward with your move-in, a prorated portion of your security deposit will be held (per day held off the market).
