Initially the Backup Waiting List will be open for one week and may remain open longer if deemed necessary in order to reach an adequate number of applicants for each advertised bedroom size. If the number of backup interest applications received is sufficient, the waiting list will close and all entries will be lotterized and added to the waiting list in the order of lottery assignment. If the number of received backup interest applications is deemed too many and constitutes an administrative burden, the received waiting list applications will be processed through a lottery, in which the Owner designates the lottery number cap. If the number of applications is not sufficient, a lottery will be conducted after two weeks and the list will remain open on a first come first serve basis. Those included in the lottery will be placed on the waitlist according to lottery assignment. Those applications received after the designated closing of the lottery window will be placed at the bottom of the waitlist in the order in which their application was received.

Credit and criminal background checks will be performed on all adult applicants. The complete leasing process is outlined in the Lucretia Gardens Tenant Selection Criteria which is available at jscosccha.comIncomplete, duplicated or modified applications will be rejected. The John Stewart Company will notify all applicants in writing of the status of their application.
