Security Deposit and Acceptance Determination Policy

Security Deposit/damage deposit amounts are determined for each potential tenant based on the following; however Chippewa Valley Property Management reserves the right to determine a final security/damage deposit amount.

  • Past rental history/references, credit score, proven current income, length of employment, and type of property and the contents of said property such as appliances, square footage, and flooring.

  • If a pet(s) is approved/accepted to the property; no documented companion animals or service animals will be required additional charges of monthly pet rent or additional security deposit. This is limited to pets only.

  • Non-disclosure or omission of any kind on the part of a potential tenant could affect the outcome of acceptance to any and all properties managed or represented by Chippewa Valley Property Management.

  • The acceptance of a security deposit by Chippewa Valley Property Management for an advertised property will secure the property for the future tenant; said property will be removed from marketing. Without a security deposit a property will not be held for any interested party. In the event the accepted applicant chooses not to proceed for any reason, the accepted security deposit will be forfeited for the purposes of remarketing, loss of advertisement time, lost rent, and future showings of the property.
