At Valiant the majority of our owner's require tenants to hold Renters Insurance so as a company we are strongly recommending it for all residents.
Once your application is approved, you will be notified by our staff and will be required to pay your reservation fee within 72 hours. Your reservation fee is equal to your security deposit. This fee is used to hold the property for you until you move in. Once your reservation fee is received, the property will be removed from the rental market. Once you sign the rental agreement, the reservation fee will become your security deposit (on the date of possession notated on your rental agreement). In the event you decide to not move into the property, for any reason, this fee is non-refundable.
Once your application has been approved and your possession date is scheduled, if you have not done so already, please schedule utilities to be turned-on or transferred into your name on your lease commencement date. Our FREE concierge Utility Service, Citizen Home Solutions, may be contacting you by phone to help you setup your utilities. This is a FREE service to assist you with connecting utilities, cable and internet according to your area. If you have not heard from Citizen Home Solutions and prefer to use their services, please go to: http://myfreeconnection.com/valiantrealtypm/
Please be aware that it is *your responsibility* to ensure your power, gas, water etc. have been connected into your name by the start date of your lease agreement. This will ensure you do not have any disruption of utility services when you move in.
In the case of damage to the unit, the owner has insurance to cover the structure. Renter's Insurance covers your belongings and guests for injuries.

When you choose to use the provided insurance you have several policy options to choose from, you can pay it along with your rent and have peace of mind. Please feel free to shop around if you prefer coverage with another company Valiant will need the policy information you purchase prior to move in.
The Valiant Realty & Management Resident’s Benefits Package provides savings and convenience through the following professional services for all residents:
At Valiant, we go above and beyond to memorialize the condition of the property at the time of move in. We utilize the services of a third party inspection company to provide a move in condition report.
We find the move out process to be perhaps the most stressful part of a move for the residents, and the opportunity for disputing damages and cleaning at the time of move out is high, when you depend on just a move in checklist. The importance of the photos protects your security deposit deductions from pre-existing condition charges, it protects the owner's property so there is clear and convincing evidence of its original condition and it protects our reputation. It is a win win for all involved.
It is our goal to give all of our residents every opportunity to maximize their security deposit refund and we believe the move in process plays a crucial role.
To offset the cost of the move in inspection there is a one time $150.00 Move In Inspection fee, again the report is prepared by an independent third party inspection company and will be made available to residents at move in. This fee does not include the application fee, any pet fees or the security deposit.
