WE HAVE OPENINGS!
APPLY NOW AND YOU COULD RECIEVE 2 MONTHS RENT FREE and A LOWER DEPOSIT!
We are a very low-income HUD-subsidized housing project for the elderly. You must be 62 or older or disabled. The income limit for one person is $25,600 and for two people it is $29,250. If your income exceeds the appropriate amount, you would not be eligible for a unit at our complex.
The rent you will pay is based solely on your income, assets, and medical expenses. The rent is approximately 30% of your gross income. If your yearly medical expenses exceed 3% of your gross annual income, anything over 3% will be used as a deduction in figuring the rent. We also give our residents a utility allowance of $57.00 a month on a one-bedroom unit and $64.00 a month on a smaller one bedroom unit. The utility allowance is deducted directly from the rent, thus lowering the rent that much more per month.
We do require a deposit equal to one month’s rent before the utility allowance is deducted. If you have a pet, we require a pet deposit of 1/2 your deposit or $50, whichever is greater. You can either pay it in its entirety or you can pay $50 the first month and $10 a month thereafter until the deposit is paid in full. However, you must meet all of the other requirements of the Pet Agreement before a pet can be moved into your apartment. The Animal Policy and Animal Agreement are available at the rental office at Edinburgh Manor.
You are allowed to fill out the application outside of our office, but you will have to have your signature notarized on the full application. This does not apply to the pre-application.
We will need a copy of your Social Security card, a copy of your birth certificate, a copy of a photo I.D. of yourself such as a Driver’s License or a state-issued I.D. card. We will also need proof of income (Social Security, interest income, any asset that could be used to generate income).
At Edinburgh Manor we have both smaller one-bedroom units and a larger one bedroom unit. Please let us know if you would consider either unit, or specify which type of unit you are interested in.
