FAQ's: Answers for the Prospective Tenant

Finding a new place can be confusing and every property management place has different rules and regulations about the process. 

We often get the same questions, so here is a list of our most FAQ ( Frequently Asked Questions) with answers to help you out. As always, please feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or give us a call at (701) 852-1157 for any further questions. 

1. Do you allow pets?/ What is the pet deposit and fees?

Some of our properties allow pets. This is up to the owner's discretion and most of the time it is listed on the descriptions as to whether or not a specific place allows them. The pet deposit is $500 per pet and an additional $50/month in rent per pet as well. Limit is 2 pets per unit and all pets are subject to refusal dependent on size/breed.  

2. How do I view a property? 

We allow showings M-F 8:30- 4:30. This allows time for you to come into our office and get the key for the place, go out and see it, and return the key before closing time at 5:30. We offer appointments which can be made via our Facebook page or by giving us a call at  (701) 852-1157. Or, you may just stop in at our office at 408 N. Broadway. 

*Please be aware that we operate on a first come basis, so we cannot guarantee the property will still be available at the time of appointment. We do not hold any properties without an application submitted and the application fee paid.  

3. Do we take Felons? What is our credit requirement?

When it comes to the application, we don't have specific standards. Instead, we take your entire background into consideration. We'll look at criminal, credit, income, evictions and previous rental history to paint an entire picture of a your background and then make a decision based on everything. We have taken felons depending on severity of crime and how long ago it was. But, the best way to find out if you'll be accepted is to come in and speak with our property manager or fill out an application.  

4. What is the deposit and other fee required to move in?

Deposit is usually one month's rent. So, the costs associated with move in are application fee paid (currently $25), the deposit and the first month's rent. 

5. How can I see available properties and upcoming listings?

All our available listings are shown on our website>>>>https://www.minotrentals.com/minot-homes-for-rent#properties?sort=amount%7Cdesc

 You can also see what we have on our Facebook page or Facebook Marketplace. All our listings are updated as soon as we know they will be vacant. However, if you are looking for something very specific, please give us a call or shoot us a message. It is possible that something may be coming available soon that is not yet listed. However, cannot predict properties availability further out than a month. 

6. How long are you leases?

Most all of the leases at 6- 12 months and then month to month after. Most house are at least 12 months, where some of the apartments can be 6 months. It varies place to place, but we cannot do less than a 6 month lease.
