Thank you for choosing Square 1 Management!

Our application process begins with prospects attending an open house. Please make sure to arrive with everyone that is interested in renting the apartment so all applicants have experienced the apartment before applying.

The resident manager collects the name and email from each individual in a group applying for an apartment and provides it to the office. 

An application link is emailed to the applicant. This link may be shared with the cosigner and co-applicants and includes instructions on applying. There is a $35 application fee that is paid online per application. For example, the total for a tenant and cosigner is $70.00.

Each applicant has three days to complete the application. Once all applicants in a group are approved, an electronic lease is sent for signature.

By signing the lease online, each applicant will activate individual portals where rent payments are made. Providing an online application, leasing, and payment method allows us all to connect and work together remotely!

We look forward to welcoming you to your new home!
