Frequently Asked Questions
How does the waiting list work?
Click here to check your Life Lease waiting list status.
- There are separate waiting lists for each type of housing/floor plans and applicants may apply for numerous lists.
- Applicants are called in the order their application was received. (Exception: Applicants for Subsidized Rental Units are called in order of need.)
- Applicants who decline a unit are moved to the bottom of that particular list, but their standing on other lists is not affected.
How long are the waiting lists?
These currently vary from 3 to 6 years. Factors include the number of applicants, the number of actual suites, and of course the number of vacancies that occur.
May I change suites once I live at Bethany?
Yes. Residents who request an internal move are placed on an internal moving list. They are required to cover costs including restoration costs, loss of revenue (rent/operating fees), and a $200 administration fee. Requests for internal moves are honored in the order they are received. Vacancies on any particular waiting list will be filled alternately with internal and external applicants.
