Hello! Please pay attention. I am a landlord who takes this seriously. You are attempting to acquire possession of real estate, so please be serious. If you owe another property manager money or have an arrest warrant you are advised to resolve that before you contact me.
Upstairs in an 8-unit apartment building is this 490 sq. ft. studio apartment. This apartment is leased for single occupancy only. It is well maintained, perfectly functional, and clean. Features include:

Rent: $400 monthly; security deposit: $360; pet fee (if applicable): $250; application fee: $40. Approved applicants who lease the apartment receive a $15 credit at lease signing.
To rent this apartment one must first apply. To apply one must pay the $40 application fee and show current, valid, state-issued photographic identification. Applications are only accepted from those intending to reside individually. For application approval four criteria must be met: complete the application, tell the complete truth on the application, be without negative rental history, and have monthly income of thrice the rent. If verifiable income of thrice the rent is lacking it may be overcome by significant, verifiable savings or a qualified co-signer. Incomplete applications will be declined without processing and the application fee will be forfeited by the applicant. Applications are provided by e-mail to those with printing capabilities, and are available at the property behind the staircase and left of the mailboxes in a wall-mounted flyer box.
If you wish to view this apartment you may look through the burglar bar door for a partial viewing. If you wish to enter the apartment to view it, a refundable $20 viewing appointment fee is required. This payment can be made over the telephone using a debit or credit card, or by deposit into the property manager's business checking account at Neighbors' Federal Credit Union. The necessity of this policy is regretted, but is necessary due to the widespread unaccountability of the general public. This $20 payment can also be applied to the application fee. Viewings are possible mornings, afternoons, and evenings Sunday through Thursday, and Friday mornings and afternoons. No showings on Saturday.
Access to Baton Rouge City Court records are required to approve applications. Pate Properties, L.L.C. will request access to court records but assumes no responsibility for Baton Rouge City Court's non-compliance with requests and non-cooperation in facilitating that access. Baton Rouge City Court civil division is available at (225) 389-3017 and administration is available at(225) 389-5540.
Income Requirement: Must have 3x the rent in total household income (before taxes)
