Applicants & Prospective Residents

Is my application fee refundable?

Application fees cover the costs of processing applications and are non-refundable regardless of outcome or deposit requirements.

Do I need to pay an application fee for every home I apply for?

Application fees allow applicants to apply for multiple properties within a 60-day period.

What forms of payment do you accept for the application fee?

We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit or debit cards. If you do not wish to pay with a credit card or traditional debit card, please note that pre-paid Visa or MasterCard Green Dot cards are also accepted. (For information on obtaining a Green Dot card, click here.)

How long does the process take from application to move-in?

HavenBrook Home’s application process usually takes 24-48hrs. This timeframe is contingent on the applicant providing a complete application and required documentation. Please visit our “Apply” tab for more information on this process.

How do I know if I qualify to rent a HavenBrook Home?

Before applying, we recommend reviewing our Qualification Requirements by clicking here.

Does HavenBrook accept applicants with previous felony convictions?

Applicants with felonies will not be considered.

Does HavenBrook accept applicants with previous evictions?

To qualify, you must have no evictions within the last 3 years. All previous rental balances must be paid in full.

How do I know I have secured my home?

You have secured your home once you have signed the lease and submitted all funds due required per the lease agreement. HavenBrook also provides the option to reserve a home for 48hrs by paying a $500 holding fee, which will hold the home for 48hrs while you gather your documents and submit with your online application.

When do I need to pay my security deposit?

A $500 holding fee is due upon application approval which will secure the home and allow us to generate a lease. Please be sure to read the holding fee policy for all details.  Any remaining security deposit funds are due 72hr prior to lease start date, with no exceptions.

When do I need to sign my lease?

Leases need to be signed within 24 hours of when they’re generated, or there is a risk of forfeiting the home.

Does HavenBrook allow pets? What is the fee or deposit?

A non-refundable pet fee of $250 for each pet will be charged for properties that allow animals. There is a limit of two domestic animals per household. Domestic animals include cats, dogs and small caged animals. Any pet considered to be of a violent breed such as Pit Bulls or any pet with a history of violent behavior may be prohibited.

What do I need to do in order to schedule my move in?

Your Leasing Kit (provided after lease signing) can tell you more about scheduling your move in, how to set up utilities and where to send required documentation. Prior to scheduling move in, you must provide proof of renter’s insurance, utility account numbers, full payment of security deposit as well as first month’s rent or prorated rent if move-in is any day other than the 1st. Please note that if your move in is after the 20th of the month, we will also require the next month’s rent.

Current Residents

How do I pay my rent?


HavenBrook recommends paying your rent online. Our online payment portal allows you to pay by online bank transfer at no additional fee. You may also pay by credit or debit card and by check. Please note, however, that credit and debit card payments are subject to fees, which are detailed on the online payment page.


HavenBrook no longer accepts money order rent payments.  Visit our online payment page to pay via the resident portal. However, if you do not have a bank account or credit card, please contact your property manager or visit a HavenBrook office for our money order alternative solution that allows you to pay at 20,000+ locations around the world including Wal-Mart, K-Mart, ACE Check Cashers and more.  Come in today to get registered for this convenient way to pay!

Please note: Rent is accepted in the form of electronic payment, cashier’s check or personal check. HavenBrook Homes is never authorized to accept cash payment for rent, security deposit or application fee.
