Rental Qualifying Criteria
Lease Terms: Sunflower Management's standard lease term is for 12 months. However, Sunflower Management may accept more or less than a 12 month lease, on a case by case basis.
Pet Policies: Sunflower Management may allow pets in certain rental units. Pet privileges are at the sole discretion of Sunflower Management, as determined by the owner of the property. A pet deposit and a non-refundable pet fee are usually required for each pet. The pet deposit, non-refundable pet fee and/or monthly pet rent amount will be determined by the property Owner. The pet deposit and pet fee must be paid in separate certified funds. Service/Companion animals must be certified by a licensed physician and do not require a pet deposit or a non-refundable pet fee. However, such animals are still required to abide by Sunflower Management's pet policies. The following breeds are not accepted:
Akitas
Chow Chows
Doberman Pinschers
German Shepherds
Huskies
Malamutes
Pit Bulls
Presa Canarios

Sunflower Management, LLC and the Owner reserve the right to decline any animal. No puppies under 1 year of age will be permitted. An exception to these policies may be made for service animals.
Occupancy Policies: Sunflower Management adheres to the HUD guidelines which mandate that no more than 2 persons shall be allowed to occupy a single bedroom. Thus, for example, a 3 bedroom apartment may have no more than 6 occupants. If an occupant is added through birth or adoption, and thereby exceeds the limitation imposed by the HUD guidelines, then the Tenants of the rental unit may continue residency until their lease term ends. In such case, however, the lease will not be renewed. Tenants must notify Sunflower Management immediately if there is a change in occupancy. Failure to notify Sunflower Management of a change in occupancy shall be a material breach of the lease.
Utilities: In most cases, Tenants are responsible for the payment of all utilities. The utilities shall either be put into a Tenant's name or they will be billed monthly to the Tenant by Sunflower Management. Tenants are responsible for a pro-rated portion of all house meters, in addition to any sub-metered utilities. Sunflower Management charges a $5 monthly administration fee to each resident for billing outside sources, such as utilities & trash. Keys will not be provided until proof of said utilities are in Tenant’s name.
Application: A non-refundable application fee of $40 per adult (18 years of age or older) is required to cover the costs of ordering and reviewing a Tenant's credit, employment, criminal, and rental history. The applicant(s) must submit rental application fee(s) in certified funds or money order. The security deposit(s), first months’ rent and/or pro-rated rent must be in certified funds or money orders SEPARATELY. A security deposit will not be collected until applicant(s) is approved.
