Welcome to all new applicants of The Dunes at St. Andrews. In order to reside in our community, we require each applicant 18 years or older to meet certain rental criteria. We encourage you to review these requirements to determine if you are eligible.
 

Selected unit, unit type, move in date and/or rental rate is not guaranteed until your application is submitted and confirmation is received from our leasing office. Availability is subject to change.

We maintain a strict policy of confidentiality and privacy for our applicants and residents. We do not discuss information on applications with anyone other than the applicant.

All applicants and occupants age 18 years or older must complete a separate rental application. All occupants 17 years old or younger must be listed on the application.

The Dunes at St. Andrews utilizes a credit scoring system that incorporates a statistical model comparing information on your credit profile, such as bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts, late payments, collection actions, outstanding debt, reported rental history, and the age of accounts, to the credit performance of consumers with similar profiles. The scoring system awards points for each factor and considers income, monthly rent, rental history, and overall credit history to evaluate how creditworthy you are. If there is limited credit history available, items F and G below will be used to evaluate your application and additional deposits may be required. This company and this community do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, handicap, or familial status.
