Leasing Information

Water’s Edge Apartment’s is a gated community, nestled only minutes (four miles) from downtown Columbus. We are located on sixty acres surrounded by four large stocked lakes, affording many residents with spectacular waterfront and wooded views.

Application Requirements:

Income Requirements

An applicant must gross at least three (3) times the rent on the unit applied for per month. IE: $500.00 monthly rent x 3=$1,500 a month gross income needed to qualify. We are unable to add any compensation to income such as commissions, tips, bonuses, etc.

Credit History

An applicant must have established good credit history. A minimum beacon score of 600 is required with no collections or past dues with utility companies. A Beacon score under 600 would be an automatic denial.

Rental History

An applicant must have established good rental/mortgage history. Eviction and/or foreclosure will result in automatic denial. Previous landlords will be contacted as to the method of payment, condition of the apartment, terms of residency and general rental history. Persons who have established good credit history and who either because of home ownership or living with family does not have previous rental history may still qualify.


In order to be considered for residency, an applicant who has filed for bankruptcy must have maintained good credit for at least two (2) years after discharge and the beacon score must be 600 or higher. However, if the applicant has evidence that all creditors have been paid 100% of the money owed, the two (2) year requirement may be waived if beacon score is above 600.

Criminal History

All applicants will be screened for a criminal background. Favorable criminal history is required


Graduate students ONLY who do not qualify income wise may have parents co-sign for them. We do not allow undergraduate students to have co-signers.

Other Occupants

All people occupying the apartment over eighteen (18) years of age MUST apply for the unit intended to rent. It is possible (but not definite) if one person qualifies that the other may be put on as occupant only.
