There may be a fee involved in breaking the lease. Your cooperation on showing the property to any new potential tenant is necessary.

In short, yes! If you see a house you like, be sure to check the listing details. Each Central Florida rental home we advertise will state if Section 8 is accepted. If you do see that the house you like accepts section 8 you will be required to meet the same criteria as stated above for tenancy qualifications with the exception that income requirements apply only to your portion of the rent. Remember, it is always your responsibility to contact your Worker and verify your own specific Section 8 requirements to for residency. In some cases, we may require your Worker to verify the income/rental voucher amount for the particular property you are interested in.

 

How fast will you process my application?

We have an online application process to keep things fast and simple. Once you locate the property you want, go to www.rpmshomes.com and complete the application, or call us and we will e-mail it to you.  We are notified as soon as you finish the application and typically get you a preliminary decision within 24 hours. In some cases, the final application approval may be contingent on hearing back from previous/present landlords, employers and other references.

We will always attempt to contact previous and present landlord(s); however, it’s always a good idea to give your references a heads-up that they will be receiving a call from us. Worst case, if we don’t get a response from your references, it may result in our office declining your application on the basis of inability to contact the references provided

During busy times of the year there may be a slight delay in giving you a preliminary decision. If you don’t hear from us within 24 hours, we are probably still processing your application or waiting on call backs from references. You are always welcome to check on the status of your application if you have not received a response from us within 24 hours of submission.
