  • In the case that your application is denied CHNW will provide you with a detailed explanation of your ineligibility.
  • If you are approved you will need to pay a $100.00 holding deposit within 72 hours to secure the apartment. You can pay this either by check, money order, credit/debit card, or thru your online tenant portal.
  • You will also be asked to sign an Agreement to Execute a Rental Agreement. This will outline your move-in date, security deposit, prorated rent, and lease duration.

What Happens When I Move In?

  • You will need to schedule a time to sign your lease with the Leasing Office.
  • On your move-in day we will review your lease, go over important CHNW Community information, and answer any questions you may have about moving. Please be sure to allow at least 30 minutes for completing this process.
  • After signing the lease you will be directed to the Community Resource Center for further information about being a part of the Goose Hollow Community!
