What are your qualifications to rent?
How long will it take to process my application?

Most applications take 24 – 48 business hours.  We have a professional screening company verify employment, rental history credit, income and check for an all-state criminal background.  There are times when the information is difficult to obtain and the screening time may be extended.

When will you let me know if I qualify? How will you let me know?

We will let you know if you qualify, or not, within 24 hours of obtaining the completed background screening report.   A Zenith representative call and email if an email is provided.  We can only call one member of a party to inform them of the results.  We will not call everyone in the family.  We will call for 48 hours until the applicant has been informed.  If there is no response we will move on to the next candidate.
