PRIME MANAGEMENT GROUP, INC. is an equal opportunity housing provider. We fully comply with the Federal Fair Housing Act. We do not discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation or preference, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We also comply with all state and local fair-housing laws. Employees are not permitted to make any reference, verbal or written, to a resident or applicant’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation or preference, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

APARTMENT AVAILABILITY POLICY
Apartments become available when a resident submits a written notice that they intend to vacate, we issue a notice terminating tenancy or we file a court action because the resident failed to pay rent after receiving a 3-Day Notice. A vacant apartment will not be deemed available until it has been cleaned, repainted, and prepared for a new resident. We update our list of available apartments daily. The list is maintained at the main office.

OCCUPANCY GUIDLINES
To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on plumbing and other building systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in an apartment. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair-housing laws. We allow two persons per bedroom + one. For example, a one-bedroom apartment could house three people, and a two-bedroom apartment could house as many as five people, etc.

APPLICATION PROCESS
We evaluate every apartment application in the following manner: A prospective tenant must submit a rental application and ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS ON THE FORM. If a question is not applicable, then prospective tenant must write N/A. If any information is denied, then tenancy will also be denied. All adults (18 and over) must fill out an application. They must pay $25 non-refundable application fee. We will determine whether an applicant qualifies for the apartment they are applying for. The applicant’s credit history, employment history and rental references must be checked to confirm that they meet our rental criteria.
