You can schedule a virtual or in-person tour online HERE or you can call us at 773.850.3916

Will I get approved for the unit I'm interested in?

3L Living’s standard application requirements include:

  1. Proof of ID (Driver’s license, passport, etc.)
  2. Background check
  3. Credit Check (will consider credit score, collections & eviction history dating back 7 years+)
  4. Income Requirements – Must take home 3x rent amount

If rent costs $1249/mth (1249 x 3 = 3750) Then you need to take home $3,750 (before tax) to qualify for this apartment.

You will need to submit 2 of your most recent paystubs in PDF format in the application. If you can not meet these income requirements a co-signer will be needed.

How do I apply for an apartment with 3L Living?

You can apply directly online for a specific apartment from each property’s “Schedule a Tour” page. Or if you have already attended a showing and are interested in applying your leasing consultant can send you an application directly and assist you through the process.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $50 and an adminstration fee of $250. 

If your application is denied you will be refunded ONLY the adminstration fee. If your application is approved that fee is NOT refunded and acts as a “Move-In Fee”.

You will also need to meet the application requirements listed in the “Will I get approved for the unit I am interested in?” question above.

How much will move-in cost? What fees will I pay?

Your resident account will have to reflect that the Adminstration Fee of $250 & 1st month’s rent have been paid before you are given keys/access to the building and your new unit on your scheduled move in date.

If you have a pet there is a $25/mo pet rent charge that will be due upon move in.

The management always treated me with respect and kindness. I never had any major maintenance issues but everyone on staff is responsive and helpful. The location and amenities make this building a great place to live. I would definitely continue living here if I wasn’t leaving town.
