There are no charges for our leasing staff to help you to find a home. However, if you decide to submit an application to rent one of our properties, there is a $40.00 application fee for the credit and background check. To fill out the application online a credit or debit card is required. In our office a $40.00 check or money order will be required to run the background check. Please note KMB does not accept cash.

First month’s rent is due upon move-in or the start date of your lease. Prior to move-in, a security deposit is required. Security deposits are typically equal to one month’s rent, but can be up to two month’s rent, depending on the property.

Rent is due the 1st of every month, and will be considered late if not turned in by 8AM on the 2nd of that month. You can pay on our website (for Quad Cites or Iowa City) with a credit card or bank account. Otherwise, rent can be paid with a check or money order (addressed to KMB) at your local KMB’s office, drop box or mailed to the office. Please note: we do not accept cash.

If your rent total is $700.00 or less, late penalties are $12.00 per day, for 5 days, with a maximum of $60.00 in late fees per month. If your rent total is $700.01 or more, late penalties are $20.00 per day, for 5 days, with a maximum of $100.00 in late fees per month.


All prospective tenants are thoroughly screened. We have online computer services to check credit history, bankruptcy likelihood, judgments, evictions and criminal record. Employment verification, income and past tenancies are checked. Satisfactory ratios between earnings and expenses have to be met to be considered for tenancy.
