Submit your application online at www.leasetexasnow.com and then pay the $45.00 application fee (per person over 18) and the security deposit for the property you are applying for. These payments need to be made in the form of a cashier’s check or money order made out to Alliance Property Management. Fees must be turned into our office at 3701 W WACO DRIVE WACO, TX 76710. We will not begin processing an application until we have both the application fee and security deposit for the property! (The security deposit is fully refundable in the event you are denied for any reason.)
An emergency is defined as a maintenance problem that will cause a safety hazard to residents, or an imminent damage to property, so that fixing it cannot wait until the next business day. A few examples would be an overflowing toilet, a broken pipe, or sudden electrical short. If there is a gas leak, call the gas company in your area first, and if there is a power outage, call the electric company in your area first to see if there is a general power outage in the area (links to the gas and electric company websites can be found in our online directory). A/C outages are not considered an emergency. Residents without heat for a prolonged period of time is. APM takes into consideration extreme temperatures and will act as needed in certain situations.
There is no requirement for you to be present and you must provide access to your home for purposes of repairs. There is no requirement for APM to give you notice if there is a maintenance issue that needs to be handled at the property. We provide maintenance personnel with tenant contact information for scheduling purposes as needed.
To qualify as a resident for one of our rental properties, you must have the following:
- Minimum 600 credit score
- No past due/outstanding balances with another property management company, landlord or apartment complex and NO PAST EVICTIONS
- Income must be at least 3 times the monthly rent amount
