Frequently Asked Questions
- Where does WMG have properties for rent
WMG rents properties in most areas of Orange and Seminole counties. We also have a limited presence in parts of Lake County (Eustis) and Volusia County (DeBary).
- What types of properties does WMG have for rent?
WMG rents single family homes, duplexes, triplexes, quadruplexes, townhouses, condominiums, villas and small apartment complexes not larger than twelve units. We specialize in unfurnished, privately owned properties. We do not manage large apartment complexes and we do not rent out single rooms.
- Will WMG sign a short-term lease agreement?
Our standard lease term is one year. However, if a Tenant is in the military, WMG will always accommodate a military transfer or change of orders which results in the need to terminate the Lease Agreement early. Proper documentation is required in accordance with Florida Statutes. Under certain circumstances, with written owner approval, WMG may agree to a lease term shorter than one year. However, WMG will not consider any Lease term shorter than seven months.
- How much is the security deposit?
The minimum security deposit required is equal to one month's rent. Under certain circumstances, additional security deposit may be required as a condition of approval, per our written resident qualification criteria.
- What is the application fee?
$40.00 per applicant. A separate rental application is required for each adult, eighteen years of age or older, intending to occupy the Premises. Application fees must be paid in cash, cashier's check or money order. Personal checks are not accepted for application fees. Application fees are not refundable.
- How long does it take to process a rental application?
Processing a rental application usually takes between two and three business days. Sometimes approval of Homeowner or Condominium Associations, Property Owners, or unavoidable circumstances may cause processing to take longer. WMG checks five major categories – rental history, credit history, employment and income history, eviction history and criminal background. Each application must be filled out COMPLETELY and signed by the applicant. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Applications will not be processed if the application fee is not paid.
- Does WMG accept Animals?
Animals are permitted only on certain properties at the sole discretion and approval of the Property Owner. Only small to medium sized, non-violent, common domesticated animals will be allowed on any property that permits animals. Farm animals, snakes, other reptiles, exotic animals, and any large or aggressive animal will not be approved. Rottweilers, American Staffordshire Terriers (pit bulls), American Pit Bull Terriers, Dobermans, German Shepherds, Chows, Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Great Danes, St. Bernards, Mastiffs, and mixed breeds including any of the above mentioned will not be approved. If an animal is approved, a minimum $100.00 non-refundable animal fee per animal is required and additional security deposit of a minimum of $200.00 per animal is required. Also additional non-refundable animal fees or additional security deposits may be required at the sole discretion of the Property Owner. It is the policy of WMG to waive animal restrictions in a case where an animal is necessary to accommodate a person with a disability. A clear and current photo (print) of each animal expected to reside on the premises must be submitted with the Rental Application.

Rental Qualification Page.
- What utilities are included in the rent price?
For most of our rental properties, the Tenant is responsible for all utilities associated with the property. If any utilities are to be included in the rent price, this will usually be indicated in the advertising and is always included in the Lease Agreement.
