Tenant FAQ

How do I see a property?
Call our office at 205.968.3803 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm extension 2. They will answer questions about the property for you. Once you have driven by the property and still have an interest, then you can call back to either schedule a showing or check out a key for further examination.
 
What is key checkout?
Some properties will allow you to pick up a key at our office and view the property on your own schedule. When you check out a key, you will have to leave a copy of you driver’s license and also a $50.00 check for a deposit. The deposit is returned as soon as you return the key to our office. All keys must be returned to our office the same day before 4:30 pm. No keys can stay out overnight or your deposit is forfeited.
