* Each applicant must provide a separate email address and they must check that email regularly during the application process.

* Once we receive your application and fee, and all requested documents, we will run a credit/background check.  Background and credit results are generally returned within 48 hours.  If you bypass the application fee, we will not review your application, and may not contact you. Application fees should be paid online, at the time you submit your application. Pre-paid cards can not be used to pay the application fee. If need be, you may bring the fees, and/or documents into our office, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, located at 208 NE 72nd St, KCMO, 64118. Monday – Friday, 10 am – 2pm

We are closed on Wednesdays from 10am – noon, for staff meetings.

* We will send you an email requesting your last 2 months worth of income, and your last 3 rent receipts, or your rent ledger. We will also require a valid photo ID, and your SS card, in order to verify your identity.  We will not be able to perform a background check without these items. If you are relocating to the area, and do not have the means to pay several months rent up front,  you must provide an offer letter from your new employer, or a letter of transfer from your current employer to show continuing income and affordability.  If you do not have paystubs, we may require bank statements. Everything will be verified. Offer letters must include your name, projected start date, hourly wage or salary, and the average hours per week you will be scheduled to work. Absence of rental history may result in a higher deposit being required, should you be approved. You can expect a final answer on your application, 24-48 business hours, from the time you submit all required documents. Please note that apps submitted during the first week of the month, and the last week of the month, may take longer to process.

* If you are going to have pets, there is a $250 one-time pet fee per pet, which is non-refundable. This applies to all pets. Please inquire within, as number of pets, as well as sizes allowed, do vary by property.

  Deposit & Move In:  (you MUST view the property IN PERSON prior to paying a deposit)

* Once approved, you can pay the deposit, which holds the desired property, and the property will be removed from our listings. You will have 10 days to sign the lease, pay first months rent, and take possession of the property. After 10 days, the aforementioned property will again be listed as “FOR RENT”.  If you wish to have your deposit refunded to you, you will have 5 days from the date you paid your deposit, to request the deposit be refunded. After 5 days, Alpine Property Management, Kansas City, LLC,  will honor the security deposit, as a deposit credit, for up to, but not exceeding 30 days from original receipt. This deposit credit does not exclusively reserve any property until the lease is signed, and remaining fees are paid.
