    1. How do I apply for an apartment?

The application process is done through the individual managers of each building. Use either the phone number or contact form on the apartment’s page to contact the manager and they will assist you in viewing the apartment and completing the necessary paperwork.

    1. Will you rent to me if I have been evicted?

We may still rent to you. Our decision will depend upon the date the eviction occurred, the reason for the eviction, and if any debt is still owed to the previous landlord.

    1. I want to move out, what do I do?

Please note that a written 30-day notice is required. A verbal notice does not qualify as an official notice you will be vacating. Contact the manager of your building to receive a vacate form and be sure to include your forwarding address. Your building’s manager can answer any other questions regarding moving out.

    1. How much is the security deposit?

Our minimum security deposit is $500.00. Additional charges may occur if warranted as per our screening process. We review public records, credit history, employment stability, rental history, criminal history and income amount prior to making a decision about the amount of the security deposit. Co-signers are sometimes acceptable in lieu of an increased security deposit.

    1. What are your lease options?

All of our leases are month-to-month tenacies, except for Executive Plaza in Corvallis.

    1. What are the upfront costs to move in?

The security deposit and prorated rent must be paid before you move in. The screening charge is paid at the time you complete the application for the apartment.

    1. Do you screen your residents and how much does it cost?

Yes, we review criminal history, public records, rental history, employment stability, and credit history on each prospective resident. The screening fee is $45.00 per adult listed on your lease agreement.

    1. Is the screening charge refundable?

The screening charge is non-refundable regardless of whether the application is approved.

    1. Do you accept pets?

No, we do not accept pets.

    1. Are the apartments wheelchair accessible?

Not all of them are, please contact the manager listed on a property for further information about each location.

    1. Do you rent houses?

We have only two houses in our portfolio and in the past they have rarely been vacant. However, we have some units that are free-standing apartments.

    1. How do I transfer to another American Property Management apartment? What does it cost?

An application can be submitted for transfer to another APM apartment by contacting the listed manager for the property you wish to transfer to. A screening charge is collected for each transferring resident and the application is qualified in the same manner as an original application. We will need to schedule an inspection of your current apartment as if you were moving out reguarly. The security deposit from your current apartment will be transferred to the new account if your application is approved.
