1.2 To qualify for the rent discount, tenants must pay rent on or
before 5:00pm on the first of each month. In an attempt to be fair and equitable
to everyone, no exceptions are made. If for any reason KEVCO is closed on the first,
we have a drop box located on the East side of our building or tenants can utilize their Tenant Portal. Rent received after 5:00pm on the 1st (even if you put it in the drop box that night) will not be eligible for discount. Rent is considered late
on the fourth of the month and additional fees will apply.
No. Your rent amount is a fixed rate as indicated in your Lease. If paying by check, payment must be made in full in one check. If paid throug the Tenant Portal, tenants are welcome to pay their portion as decided among roommates, as long as the full amount is received before 5:00pm on the 1st.
Tenants are welcome to bring their payment in earlier than the 1st (note: checks will be cashed upon receipt). Tenants may also utilize the Tenant Portal to ensure payment is made by 5:00pm on the 1st, if the office is closed.
All envelopes must be received by 5:00pm on the 1st to be eligible for the
rent discount. If rent is received after the 3rd of the month additional late fees apply.
Most of our leases start August and go through July. The "available date" found on our website indicates when the property may next be rented.
Generally, whether leases begin in June or August, we begin pre-leasing in mid-February. In January, current tenants are offered the option to renew. If a lease is not renewed, we will schedule showings in February for new tenants to pre-lease the home. We provide a day's notice to tenants before entering, so plan ahead. During the months of February and March, pre-leasing demand is extraordinary. When calling, have a list of properties you're interested in and know your fellow roommates availability so that you can all view the homes together. This will be your best chance to become first in line for a property. You can email
us to set up a showing at email@example.com or call us at (970) 419-8881.
2.4 KEVCO requires a rental application from anyone age 18 and older who wants to sign a lease. When processing
the application KEVCO screens four things: credit history, criminal history, verifiable
income and landlord references. Don't panic, each of these
factors does not need to be perfect in order to rent with us. We'll consider your applications as a whole (for those applying with roommates). The better each factor comes back is to your advantage.
you do not have credit history but all other factors
look good, then KEVCO would rent to you. If your credit is bad,
you might be offered the opportunity to get a co-signer (who will have to fill out an application).

felonies or endanger the property in which you're trying to
Regarding income, we want to make sure you're financially secure enough to pay rent each month. Provide KEVCO will all income information. Often times student's parents are paying rent and living expenses, and that's okay. We'll want their contact information to verify same. KEVCO is student friendly!

current rental reference. If you do not have a rental history, it is fine to put

stick to those four factors when processing an application.
The City of Fort Collins has an ordinance which states that no more than
3 unrelated adults can occupy a premise. Therefore, we can only rent homes to
no more than 3 unrelated adults. Please be aware that as a tenant, you are
responsible for complying with this ordinance. This issue is addressed
in our lease here.
We allow pets. There is a one time, non-refundable pet fee of $150 per pet. There is no pet rent. Pets must be approved in writing first. Some restrictions may apply based on the specific property.
Sometimes the garbage disposal just needs to be reset. Most have
a reset switch underneath the sink or a reset button on the disposal. If that doesn't work, please
contact KEVCO and we can send for maintenance. Be careful in use of the
disposal. Only put small amounts of food in at a time and run
plenty of water while the disposal is running. If
non-food items or large amounts of food cause
the disposal issues, the tenant is responsible for the cost
of repair and/or replacement.
First, try changing the bulb with another bulb that you know is working
and is an appropriate wattage for the fixture. Second, make sure that
there is power to the light by checking to see if you have a tripped
breaker. If that doesn't work, please contact KEVCO and we can
send for maintenance.
