A separate application must be completed by all persons 18 years or older who intend to occupy the apartment. IF REQUESTED, a $20.00 application fee must be submitted with each application. The application fee will be used to process the application and pay for the cost of a credit report. The application fee is non-refundable unless the processing costs are less than $20.00 in which case a refund will be issued for the difference between the $20.00 and the actual costs. Each application must be filled out completely. Our Leasing Standards and Procedures are posted at the front counter of the Culligan Management Company Offices located at 3700 S. El Camino Real in San Mateo. Basic qualifying criteria include a combined gross monthly income of all applicants of at least three (3) times the rent, a satisfactory credit report and, if applicable, a positive rental history.
Upon approval, prospective resident has TWO DAYS to pay the FULL DEPOSIT required in order to hold the unit until move in.
