Process After Applying

Waiting for an available apartment

Once we receive your application and it is processed, we will email an acknowledgement letter which states your “Application Date”. Our application pool time changes throughout the year and can be anywhere from one to 12 months.  We have no control over openings in the complex as it all depends on when residents give us a vacate notice and an apartment becomes available.

If you want to know where you are in the application pool, call the CSCC office at 612-378-2434 or e-mail at leasing@cscc.coop with your Application Date. Remember though, that the number given to you does not take into account when people are interested in moving into CSCC. Some people might apply 1+ years in advance of wanting to move into CSCC. If we have a unit to offer you we would let you know at least 30 days ahead of time.

We periodically send out update notices to those in the application pool to make sure that you are still interested in living at CSCC. You need to respond to the email notice and provide us with any changes in address or telephone numbers so that we are able to contact you when an apartment becomes available.

 

Accepting an apartment at CSCC

When your name comes up for an available apartment, we will contact you via email with the offer giving you the type of unit, rental rate, and the move-in date. (Rarely does a date fall on the 1st of the month). The CSCC office will give you a limited time to make your decision. If you do not respond to the apartment offer, your name will be removed from the application pool.

Once you have accepted the apartment offer, we will e-mail you a Pre-lease Agreement that includes apartment details and information regarding the security deposit. You will need to return the security deposit (equal to one month’s rent) to the CSCC office within seven days.

Once the security deposit and Pre-Lease Agreement is turned in we will contact you with further move in details.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the office at 612-378-2434.
