A self-showing allows you to view a vacant property at your convenience. We will schedule you for 1-2 hours and send you instructions to get keys from a lockbox located on the property. You can tour the home on your terms without those pushy agents bothering you. When you are finished touring you lock up the property and return the keys to the box.
We will also follow up with you after your showing to answer any questions you have or to get you set up to apply. If you have any questions, you can always message us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apartments can be viewed as soon as we complete an inspection after it’s been cleaned and deemed “ready” to move-in.

CREDIT HISTORY: To determine satisfactory credit, we process a credit report through a credit reporting agency. Negative outcomes may result in the requirement of an additional deposit, guarantor, or denial.
BACKGROUND: A complete background check to include a search for criminal records may be conducted. A criminal charge or conviction may result in an applicant’s denial.

Steps to Apply for an Apartment/Home with Mynd:
Pets are allowed at select properties. We typically advertise this on our listing.
As per FHA guidelines, we will consider requests for service and emotional support animals with with proper documentation.
There is a security deposit of $500 per pet, with a maximum of 2 pets per unit.
It is possible to be approved with less than perfect credit history. Credit decisions are received with “approved”, “approved with conditions” or “declined” decisions. If your application is declined, we will issue a letter that will allow the household to contact the credit reporting agency to understand why a declined decision was reached.
It is possible to be approved with a prior eviction, but every situation is unique. Unpaid prior evictions on applications are usually declined.
No, we do not require renter’s insurance, however we strongly recommend obtaining it. Our insurance policy only covers the buildings themselves, and not your personal belongings. Most car insurance providers offer you the option of renter’s insurance, which can sometimes be cheaper when combining it with your vehicle insurance.
The utilities for the household must be placed in the resident’s name prior to move-in. We will ask you for that proof prior to releasing keys to anyone on the lease. Therefore, it’s best to transfer utilities over to a leaseholder no later than 48-hours prior to the start of the lease.
We process rental applications through TransUnion Resident Screening. We process for both credit and criminal history, and residential evictions.
Proof of income is mandatory. Pay stubs are typically what we look for but if you are taking a new job, an offer letter (if hired within 30 days) can be used. Please inquire for additionally accepted valid forms of income.
Unless it is indicated in the listing, an initial 12-month lease agreement is standard for new leases.
“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 (still previous tenant living there) and getting a freshening up in between residents. 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 the same.
Photos of the apartment may be provided during the time of on-notice and turn-over to being ready. Photos will be of the actual home however; photos might temporarily be posted of a home in the same building with similar size and interior finishes. If photos are not of the actual apartment, you should notice our disclosure of the fact in the advertisement. Either way, a tour is not available until the Mynd team has inspected and approved the apartment/home for move-in.
The steps to pre-lease are simple and the same for available properties.
If you decide not to move forward with your move-in, a prorated portion of your security deposit will be held.
If you’re interested in an apartment that is available for pre-leasing, let your leasing representative know.
Pets are allowed at a property owner’s discretion. Not all listings are classified as pet-friendly. However, it will be clear what pets are allowed on the listing. If allowed, we accept the following types of pet:
Dogs: We all love dogs, but there are certain breeds which are restricted due to liability. Dogs should have no history or propensity for violent actions. Dog weight limit is 40 pounds however some owners will allow larger dogs. All dogs must be on-leash in common areas of any multifamily dwelling and must also be housebroken.
Restricted breeds include:
Cats: Cats must be indoor cats only. Be neutered or spayed, and the resident must provide appropriate litter box and maintain it in a clean, sanitary condition.
Birds: Birds shall be kept in their cages at all times.
Fish: The water container for fish should not be over 15 gallons.
Mynd does not discriminate against residents or prospective residents based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, or age. Mynd does, however, require favorable credit, an unblemished criminal and previous housing background check and a monthly income three times the monthly rent.
Mynd typically asks for a 12-month lease commitment from prospective residents in most circumstances. Shorter leases can be discussed but are not guaranteed.
A Guarantor is not technically a “co-signer”. A Gaurantor is a qualified person who agrees to be immediately, and completely responsible for rental payments if the rent payments are not made on an apartment/home by the lease-holder. A Guarantor should complete an application and be approved for the responsibility. The Guarantor, once approved, will sign an addendum to the main lease. The Guarantor has no rights of access or to live in the apartment/home.
A Guarantor application along with proof of income can be submitted should an applicant be denied due to income only. A $36 application fee will apply and only one guarantor is allowed per lease.
A Guarantor must provide proof of income totalling 5X the monthly rental along with a completed guarantor application.
Yes, a check payable to MYND Management will be accepted, however, electronic payments are the preferred method of payment for an application fee.
Yes, a paper application can be completed and emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The application fee is $36 per person. Application fees are required from every individual who is 18 years old and older.
The application fee is non-refundable.
Yes, of course. We recommend emailing the person you’ve been working with to complete your application process. They can take care of the details for you.
The bed bug addendum is a legal amendment requiring California landlords to provide tenants with written information about bed bugs and how to report possible infestations.
When signing your lease, you will be asked to complete an addendum in regards to bed bugs. Please read the addendum carefully and select the options that apply.
REGARDING INSPECTION OF YOUR NEW HOME
You will select one of the choices:
REGARDING PREVIOUS INFESTATIONS
You will select one of the choices:
You have 48 hours to inspect the unit after you move in and notify Mynd if you observe any evidence of bed bugs or bed bug infestation. You can reach us at email@example.com.
You can select the option on the addendum to let Mynd know that you have previously lived in a residence or elsewhere that had a bed bug infestation. Mynd will review documentation of the treatment and inspect your personal property and possessions to confirm the absence of bed bugs.
