How to Apply/Sign the Lease


The way we work applications is that you are essentially applying and entering into the lease at the same time.  When you apply you are agreeing to live in that apartment if we find your application acceptable.  So make sure you are certain you want to live in the apartment you are applying for before you submit all the application materials. 


Keep in mind that time is of the essence when applying for our apartments, because we only review the first application package we receive.  If your application package is the second one we receive there is a good chance we may not even get to review your application package.  And even if you mail all your documents in there is no guarantee that your application will be the first one we receive. 


For ease of use, please click on the "Application Checklist" button and print out the checklist to keep track of your progress.



Step 1:
Each person who will be on the lease must complete the application to the right and click the SUBMIT button.  IMPORTANT: Be sure to enter an email address that you check daily, as part of the application review requires you to respond to an email in a timely manner.

Step 2:
Each person who will be on the lease must have a parent or guardian print out the Guardian Guarantee form from the blue button.  The parent/guardian will need to complete the form and have their signature notarized.  They will then need to mail the form to the address below.


Step 3:
Each person who will be on the lease must mail an application fee via check or money order in the amount of $25.00 payable to “Paul Moomaw” to the address at the bottom of the page.  Please note that the $25.00 payment represents only a portion of the total application fee of $35.00 per person.  You will pay the additional $10.00 per person in application fee as part of step 6. IMPORTANT: The application fee may be paid by each applicant individually or for the group as a whole, as long as the total amount paid equals $25 multiplied by the number of people who will be on the lease.

Step 4:
Each applicant must mail a signed and initialed lease to the address at the bottom of the page.  IMPORTANT: All applicants must agree how much each applicant will pay in rent each month and how much each applicant will pay toward the security deposit.  The total amounts that will appear in paragraphs 4.B and 5.B of each lease must total up to the amount of total monthly rent and total security deposit due.

Step 5:
Each person who will be on the lease must mail payment of their share of the  security deposit via check or money order made payable to “PennAir Properties” in the amount shown in paragraph 5.B of the lease.  IMPORTANT: The security deposit must be paid by each applicant individually in the amount shown in paragraph 5.B of the lease.

Note: Steps 1 through 5 must be completed and received by PennAir for each person who will be on the lease before Step 6 can take place.

Step 6:
Each person who will be on the lease must monitor text and email and respond accordingly.  An email will arrive from rentals@pennair.net via RentRedi.  You must follow the directions in that email to download the RentRedi app and complete the application.  Ignore steps 5 and 9 in the email, as you do not need to enter any additional information or upload any documents, simply sign and submit the application.


Step 7:

Each applicant will then receive an emailed invoice for the final $10.00 of the application fee.  Each person must pay that $10.00.   IMPORTANT: This is part of the total application fee of $35.00, but is designed to ensure that the applicants monitor the email address they provide in the application.   Prompt response to the text message and email is part of the application review.  Failure to respond to either in a timely manner may result in the application being rejected.

Step 8:
Upon completion of the final payment for the application fee and completion of the review process, PennAir will notify applicants via email whether they were accepted or rejected for the apartment.

Mail all items required in steps 2 through 5 to:
PennAir Properties
PO Box 6343
Virginia Beach, VA 23456

Note: Do not send anything overnight via FedEx or UPS as they won’t deliver to a PO Box.  If you want to send an overnight package you will have to use the US Postal Service, as they are the only service offering delivery to our PO Box.
