Pondview Apartments Rental Application Requirements and Criteria

A $35.00 or $55.00 (if you have lived out of state in the past seven years) non-refundable application fee is charged for processing each individual application.  Applicants must be eighteen (18) years of age at the time of application to enter into a legal binding contract.  All adults to occupy apartments must apply. Photo identification shall be provided at the time of application, which may be a Drivers License or State issued ID.

The rental office staff does not make the decision regarding your application.  Times Ventures Management will approve or disapprove the application.  The applicant will generally be notified within 3-5 business days.  Times Ventures Corporation is a fair housing provider and does not discriminate based on race, color, national origin, sex, familial status, handicap (disability), sexual orientation, creed, and marital status, receipt of public assistance, ancestry and age.

Applications may be denied for any reason which management feels would jeopardize the safety of the community or its residents or for any other reason which would jeopardize the management’s ability to collect rent. 

Management may choose, at its discretion, to approve an application with additional deposits and/or a qualified and approved co-signer (who resides in the state of Minnesota).  Co-signer criteria are as follows:  

  • Co-signor meets all criteria listed below.
  • Co-signor must complete a separate rental application.
  • Co-signor must sign the lease along with each applicant who will reside in the apartment prior to move in.

Rental applications are evaluated using the following criteria:
