Renting From S.F. Shannon

What are the requirements for renting an apartment from SF Shannon?

All applicants must be at least 18 years of age; have a good current landlord reference; a good source of income; and good credit. The $25.00 application fee pays for the cost of a complete credit check done through Experian.

We cannot accept anyone who smokes (any substance whatsoever, including e-cigarettes). We also cannot accept anyone with previous evictions, or a police record (we typically don’t worry about traffic violations).

Since you don’t typically offer leases, what protection do I have against regular rent increases?

Although we prefer to rent on a month-to-month basis, we do give every new resident  the guarantee of no rent increase whatsoever for a minimum of 12 months. This affords the protection against arbitrary rent increases that otherwise would be provided by a lease while offering you the flexibility of not being bound to a one-year rental period.

What about when I’m ready to move?

Move when you want! You’re not locked in to a lease. We ask you to give us at least 30 days’ notice, as required by Missouri law.  If you’re in residence less than one year, you forfeit your security deposit.

Do you accept pets?

We accept well-behaved cats and dogs at most but not all of our properties.  At those buildings where pets are allowed, there is a $250.00 canine or feline security deposit per dog or cat. The pet security deposit is fully refundable provided that your pet has caused no damage whatsoever to the property.

By “well-behaved cats and dogs” we mean animals who do not cause trouble for their neighbors by (for example) barking excessively or acting in an aggressive manner. And animals who not destroy property by (for example) scratching the woodwork or using the floor as a bathroom. Such pets are not welcome in any of our apartment buildings.

And all pets must have responsible owners/caretakers. Dogs must be walked on leashes away from the property. You must clean up after your pet and properly dispose of the feces. Any “accidents” in or around the building must cleaned up immediately.
