What is there are multiple applications submitted for one property?
We will process all applications for consideration to determine the best applicant (in our sole discretion), which may not necessarily be the first application received. In such cases, more than one applicant may be approvable, however only one will eventually be approved. Because we represent the best interest of the rental property, we will accept the best application, which may not necessarily be the first application received. We follow up with all approved and back-up applicants until a lease is signed and funded.
