Applicants should find out sometime this week if they made it through the first round of screenings.

Information from The Mezzanine:

  • During the first round of application screenings, denials were based on: No income, outstanding rental collection or criminal history
  • Applicants will receive an email or letter (if no email address provided) within the originally promised 30 days and a refund for those denied within 30 days after that.
  • The second round of application screenings is for applicants who were initially approved.
  • People who do not make it through the second round of screening will be refunded. Reasons for not making it through the second round of screenings include: Unverifiable income or income verified too high or too low
  • Once all units are filled, we will let remaining individuals choose to waitlist (for The Mezzanine at Freedom or other property), or a refund (to be mailed)
