We ask that you review our criteria for approval prior to filling out the rental application. If you have any questions concerning the criteria or application process, please contact a leasing consultant at 704-535-1122 x 210 or by email at ApplicantScreening@HendersonProperties.com
Note: Each person 18 years or older who will be living in the home or co-signing must submit a separate application. This is because credit and criminal background checks are conducted for each individual.
The application will not be processed until the application fee is paid. Remember to include $75.00 per person 18 years of age or older (applicant or occupant). For co-signers and co-applicants, contact the Leasing team at the information above to let us know which applications are linked.
After you have provided all of the required information and application fee(s), we will begin processing your application. The application process can take several business days depending on the timeliness of responses from an applicant’s landlords and employers, as well as the number of applications received for a particular property. Application fees are non-refundable.
