Here’s what you need to know to get started.

Upfront Costs

  • $75 non-refundable application fee.
  • $200 non-refundable fee to hold an apartment, applied to your account upon move-in.

Security Deposit

  • Based upon credit check, your options will vary:
    • Fully Approved Applicants will require a security deposit of 1 month’s rent, returnable at the end of your lease.
    • Conditional Approvals will be directed to obtain a security deposit coverage policy for a one-time fee, through our partners at The Guarantors.  Typically this one-time, non-refundable policy fee is approximately 50% of 1 month’s rent, and covers you for the length of your lease and any renewals at Meetinghouse.

  • We offer fully & partially furnished apartments for an additional fee.
  • We allow pets. Click here to learn about our pet policy and pet fees.
  • All lease holders must be 18 years or older.


Application Requirements

This apartment community provides an equal housing opportunity for all people. Criteria to qualify for residency include:

  • Proof of identification
  • Proof of income
  • Gross income of at least 2.5 times the amount of rent
  • Verification of current positive credit payment history
  • No disqualifying criminal felony or misdemeanor offenses
  • Positive prior rental history

Upon investigation and verification of the information provided, our 3rd party screening company will provide a recommendation regarding an approval or denial of residency. In the event that a majority, but not all, of the requirements above are met, a conditional approval will require application with our third-party deposit insurance partner, The Guarantors.  The Leasing Office will provide the application instructions and assist you with our custom options available through The Guarantors.
