Do you allow pets?
Yes! We love our furry family members! While most of our properties allow pets, our pet policy varies by property so please contact us to be sure before applying.
In homes which do allow pets, we welcome a maximum of 3 pets. We have no breed or weight limitations on dogs. We will need a licensed veterinarian to sign off on the following aggressive breeds: Pitbulls, Rottweilers and Dobermans. Only cats and dogs are permitted in pet-friendly homes. No exotic pets, lizards, aquariums, etc. allowed.
For all properties we will accept service animals as long as the applicant provides their official certificate paperwork.
Is there a security deposit?
Most of our deposits are equal to one month’s rent unless specified in our listings for that property or unit.
How do I schedule a showing?
You can schedule a showing by clicking the ‘Schedule a Showing’ button under the ‘Available Rentals’ tab or by clicking the ‘Schedule a Showing’ button on any of the available properties. This link will allow you to view all of our available show times. If you would like to schedule an accompanied showing with our leasing agent by choosing ‘Select a time to meet us there’ or, for properties equipped with a lockbox, you can choose ‘See it on your own’ to schedule a self-guided showing.
For self-guided showings, an ID or credit card will be required to validate your identity. Please keep in mind, there is no charge for this showing, however, you will be responsible for the property during that time.
You can also give us a call at our office and we may be able to help you schedule a showing over the phone.
Where do I meet the leasing agent for my showing?
Our leasing agents will meet you at the property you chose for a showing at the scheduled time. Generally, our agents are waiting outside common areas of our apartments. For houses, our agents will already be waiting inside for you.
I have never rented before, can I still rent from you?
Yes! In order to get approved with no rental history, a Co-Signer would have to be approved along with you. Co-Signers will be named on the lease and are held to the same standard as regular applicants, the only difference being that Co-Signers must make 4 times the amount of rent per month as opposed to 3 times. If you’re interested in using a Co-Signer, have fill out our free Co-Signer Application which can be found under the ‘Applicants’ tab.
Do you take Section 8 vouchers?
Yes, we do accept vouchers. Only certain properties are eligible for vouchers. If a property is eligible for vouchers, it will be listed in the description of the property. You can always contact us to check the eligibility of a property.
I have an eviction on my record; can I still rent from you?
Evictions do not automatically result in a non-approval, however, they can impact the outcome of an application.
I have a felony on my record; can I still rent from you?
Felony charges and criminal history do not automatically result in a non-approval, however, violent and drug-related felonies can impact the outcome of an application.
What does my deposit go towards?
The non-refundable portion of a deposit go towards general cleaning, carpet cleaning, hauling of personal belongings and general maintenance throughout the term of the lease.
The refundable portion of a security deposit is dependent on meeting move-out guidelines. Move-out procedures are covered in lease signing and included in the hard copy lease. Following these procedures upon vacating a property will ensure that the refundable portion of the deposit is given.
Where is your office located?
333 Rent is located at 7215 Troost Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64131.
What are your business hours?
Our office is open for business between the hours of 8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. We are closed for most major holidays.
When should I start looking for a rental?
The best time to start looking for a new rental is 4-6 weeks from your intended move date as properties and units can become occupied swiftly and the availability may change. Once applicants are approved, their approval is held for 60 days. After 60 days, you may need to re-apply and be re-verified with our screening company.
How long is the lease? Can I sign a short-term lease?
The duration of a lease with 333 Rent is 12 months. After that time, it is possible for residents to rent our properties on a month-to-month basis.
We do not offer short-term leases for less than 12 months at this time.
Do you have any furnished properties?
No, our properties are not furnished and are rented move-in ready.
I’m approved, what are the next steps?
Once approved with 333 Rent, you will choose a move in date (this will be the day you pick up your keys) and sign a deposit agreement outlining all of the move in costs which will be due by the move in date. From there, you may pay your deposit to secure the property. Once a deposit is placed, a lease signing meeting will be scheduled and you will be given a utility confirmation sheet in order to get utilities in your name. Once you have paid the deposit, signed the lease, placed the utilities in your name, and paid your balance in full, you may pick your keys up between 8:30 and 5:00 on your move in date!
Can I put a deposit down now to hold a property or unit for me?
We can take deposits from approved applicants only. Once you are approved, your deposit can hold a property for 2 weeks.
My application was not approved, now what?
Applications that have not been approved will be mailed a letter stating the reason for the denial as well as instructions on how to access their background check and credit report.
The property I applied for is no longer available, what do I do now?
If a property becomes unavailable while an application is still processing we will refund the application fee for approved applicants only. Approved applicants will remain in our system for 60 days with the opportunity to choose any available property that they meet the income qualification for without re-applying. Non-approved application fees are non-refundable.
Can I pay my rent online?
Yes, residents have the ability to pay online by credit card, debit card and bank account/routing information. You can also set up AutoPay which will automatically withdrawal your rent every month on the 1st
