Yes, I want to live in Rainbow Vista…

If you would like to live in Rainbow Vista, you start out by submitting our rental application and a $50 application fee. The application grants Rainbow Vista an authorization to check your credit history. The application fee is non-refundable. Processing your application will take 3-5 business days.

If you are approved, you must sign the rental agreement, prior to moving in.

Before you move in, be prepared to pay the following:

  • your first month’s rent
  • a security deposit, equal to one month’s rent
  • a pet deposit of $300, if applicable.

Rents are due on the first of every month and are considered late if not paid by the fifth of the month. A late fee of $50 is assessed for payments after the fifth of the month. Renters who pay their rent late three times in a twelve-month period will be evicted.

Deposits and rents are due in full in advance. Rainbow Vista cannot accept partial payments nor can we finance payments over a longer period of time. Rainbow Vista accepts cash, checks, and PayPal payments. We do not accept credit cards for payment.
