Welcome to all new applicants of Maple Flats. In order to reside in our community, we require each applicant 18 years or older to meet certain rental criteria. Before you submit a Rental Application, we encourage you to review these requirements to determine if you are eligible.

Please note that these are our current rental criteria and nothing in these requirements shall constitute a guarantee or representation by our community that all residents and occupants currently residing in our community have met these requirements. There may be residents and occupants that have resided here prior to these requirements going into effect; therefore, our ability to verify whether these requirements are met is limited to the information we receive from various resident reporting services.

All applicants and occupants age 18 years or older must complete a separate rental application.

DRS Management, LLC utilizes a credit scoring system that incorporates a statistical model comparing information on your credit profile, such as bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts, late payments, collection actions, outstanding debt, reported rental history, and the age of accounts, to the credit performance of consumers with similar profiles. (A credit scoring model only uses information on the applicant that pertains to credit; it does not use certain characteristics like-race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap, or familial status in its calculation.) The scoring system awards points for each factor and considers income, monthly rent, and overall credit history to evaluate how creditworthy you are. If there is limited credit history available, items A and B below will be used to evaluate your application and additional deposits may be required. This company and this community do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap, or familial status.
