For the safety of our employees, Rental Units will only be shown AFTER you have had an appointment at our rental office and provided approved Photo ID, and paid your $100 application fee.  The application fee refundable if you do not qualify.

We schedule viewings of the property on the weekends.  If you hate the unit, or the layout will not work for you, we will gladly refund your Application Fee.

 Because we schedule viewings while tenants are still in the unit, you should not bring children or animals to the viewing, only the adult applicants.

  • Drivers’ License (or State Photo ID) (original, no photocopies) for ALL adult applicants (age 18 and over).
  • Social Security Card (original, no photocopies)

If approved for the unit, this fee is credited toward your 2nd Month’s rentPlease, Do not combine fees onto the same Money Order, this will only slow down your refund.
  • $35.00 Background Check Fee (NON-REFUNDABLE) required for each ADULT who will be living in the unit and/or Co-Signers for the property. ALL $35 fees must be paid with separate Money Orders in the event you are due a refundAll applicants must make application in person.
  • PHOTO: We reserve the right to take a current photo of all adult applicants.



Bring the following items to make your application process move more quickly.

The property you are interested in will not be vacant long!  At the last turn-over, this unit rented in 3 days and with a 6-hour turn-over time.  Don’t delay!  Get  all of these items together.  They are required with your application.  Applications will not be processed until all of these items are submitted. 

  • Pay Stubs: Two Months of Pay Stubs (this could be up to 8 paystubs), must be most recent 2 months, older paystubs are not acceptable. You can also have your company EMAIL PDF copies of Pay Stubs directly to US: e-mail
  • Current Lease Bring your current original lease with signatures of your former landlord and we will happily make copies so you can keep your original. If you have past leases (for the last 3 places you’ve lived), this will only help you qualify sooner.  If you do not have a current lease, please bring as many of the following as you have.
  • Previous Address(es): We need at least 3 addresses of rental history or the past 3 years if you don’t have 3 previous addresses, bring this information with you; Landlord names, Leasing Agency/Property Manager names, and their phone numbers & email addresses.  Be sure to include apartment numbers on your application form.
  • Copy of a current MLG & W bill (or other utility company if you are from out of the area). [If you have never had utilities in your name, you need to make application NOW so that you can have power by the time you move in if accepted.]
  • Employment Information: Three (3) years records are required. Bring Company Name, Manager’s Name, Company Address, phone, supervisor’s name, phone, etc., with you. Make sure your Work History Dates are accurate as well as your hourly wages/salaries. These will be verified. If you falsify any information on your application, you will be automatically disqualified from tenancy. You can write these down on a separate sheet of paper if you wish and just give this list to us (as opposed to filling out tiny blanks on our application form).
  • Emergency Contacts: Bring the names, addresses, email addresses, phone/cell numbers of at least 3 people who do not live with you, that we may need to contact in the event of an emergency and we cannot get in touch with you, or in the event something happens to you (fire, tornado, illness or death etc.).  We HOPE we will never need to use this information. You can write these down on a separate sheet of paper  (as opposed to filling out tiny blanks on our application form).
  • RENTER’S INSURANCE: Bring a copy of your current policy, or make application for a policy.  This is required to live in our units. If you do not currently have a policy or a good insurance agent, contact Lynn McDonald at Allstate Insurance (901-849-7101) and tell her you were referred by Zack Properties and she will give you the best rate available to date. It costs around $12-$20 per month and will protect YOUR items in the event of a fire, flood, tornado, theft, etc., even things stolen from your car are covered!  It also covers the house should you accidentally set it on fire, or your washer over flows, etc. You are out $0.00 and your insurance pays for the damages. If you do not have renter’s insurance and the building burns down or is broken into, your items will NOT covered. Our policy only covers the structure and our equipment. In most cases,  accidental damage caused by you is covered under your renter’s insurance policy, thus you may receive more of your security deposit back at the end of your lease.


  • We are an Equal Opportunity Home Leasing Company.
  • The applicant(s) with the most favorable Credit, Financial and Criminal Background as well as continuous Work History will be accepted as the tenant, not necessarily the first applicant.
  • Argumentative or Combative applicants will not be accepted.
  • Applications that are incomplete will not be processed until they are complete.
  • Applications that are untruthful will be automatically denied.

All fees prior to tenancy must be made in certified funds on SEPARATE Money Orders or Cashier’s Checks.

You will need the following checks (quick reference) prior to tenancy:
  1. Application Fee (1 per unit) = $100.00
  2. Back Ground Check Fee (per tenant over 18 years of age) = $35.00 each (separate money orders, please!)
ONCE APPROVED, you will need the following Certified Funds:
  1. Security Deposit = $1,000 (Cashier’s Check Preferred) to hold the unit until your move-in day which must be by the first of the next month.
  2. First Month’s Rent (no discounts on first month) = $1,395.00

We prefer no pets because of conditions with this unit. However, if you must have a pet, we reserve the right to interview the pet and will require the following:

  1. Pet Deposit  = $250.00 per pet
  2. $25 per month PET RENT per pet.
  3. If any other pets are brought into the property – including visiting, pet-sitting or fostering pets that are not PREVIOUSLY APPROVED IN WRITING FROM THE LANDLORD, you will be charged a separate PET DEPOSIT of $300 plus $35 per month rental from the FIRST DATE OF TENANCY.

NOTE:  SAs or ESAs have no additional fees if properly disclosed and all reasonable accommodations (in writing) are received by the landlord PRIOR to bringing in the animal.  All ESAs require a “prescriptions” or “doctors’ letter” dated within the past 12 months by a local physician, therapist or social worker in accordance with HUD regulations and the state of TN.  These must all be in order PRIOR to moving an animal into the unit.

To FALSELY identify a pet as an ESA by lying or using a fake letter obtained online is equivalent to “impersonating a disabled person” and is illegal and dishonest.  If this is found to be the case, you will be denied tenancy.  If you are already in one of our units, the pet fees referenced above will be doubled ($600 deposit & $70 per month PER PET rent retroactive to the 1st month of tenancy).

Rent House Chumley
The Chumley, Single Family Home

This home has an “Open Concept” Great Room which is open to the Kitchen, a large eating bar and the Dining Room. There is a HUGE Pantry (6′ wide by 3′ deep) big enough to hold a month’s worth of food!  There is also a Coat Closet that is over 4′ wide, enough space for your own coats plus your guests’ coats and a few children’s backpacks too!  There is a Powder Room on the first floor directly across from the coat closet (under the staircase).

Notice the size of the pantry! (It’s so large it wouldn’t fit into one picture!)


Pantry as stocked by current tenant


  This lot would not accommodate a double garage, therefore only a single garage is with this unit.  This Garage is 20′ deep x 12′ wide.  My Ford F-150 Extended Cab Pick-up with a 6′-6″ bed fits inside the garage and the door WILL shut!  Most vehicles are not as long as my truck, so I’m confident your car will fully fit into the garage.  There is space left over to store bicycles, lawn mowers and trimmers, etc.  There are wood strips attached to the walls to hang tools and toys.



Not only is there a 1-car garage, but there is also a double-wide parking pad out front.  So you have three (3) dedicated parking spaces on the lot and will not need to rely on street parking for your extra vehicles. (Street parking is often difficult to find.)


There is a Powder Room on the first floor for quick access and for guest use. It has an automatic door closer on the hinge to keep the door closed when not in use.  To keep utilities low, low volume toilets  were installed and low flow faucets are installed at all vanities.

Here is the Powder Room. It is open to a small hallway between the Entry and the Great Room - directly across from the Coat closet. It sits under the stairs, tucked away, yet there when you need it. No running up and down the stairs for the restroom facilities for you or your guests.

The Master:


Unfortunately this picture is a bit dark, but you’ll see a ceiling fan, 10′ ceilings and a beautiful wooded view.  There are 34 acres of land behind this property. The view is wonderful.

Tenant Pics:  

Dresser space is about 10′ wide. Walkway between Queen bed & dresser is about 4-5′
Queen Size Bed shown, King will fit easily.

The Master has a 7′ x 7′ walk-in closet and it’s own En-Suite Bathroom.


Dual Vanities, natural light and plenty of storage in the cabinets and 3 drawers between the sinks.MASTER BATH


Stand-Up Shower is 5′ long!

Bedroom 2 also has a vaulted ceiling (10′ high) and a Walk-In closet!

There is a window in this closet, the small window with the shutters on the front of the house. Every child who has experienced this closet wants to live here!!!  We utilized the space  above the stairs to open this closet up for more storage.  What kid CAN’T keep their room clean with a closet this big?

Bedroom 3 is 11′ x 11′ and has a 7′ long closet.  It’s not walk-in, but it is HUGE for a rental unit.

Tenant’s pic: 

Bedroom 3 is currently a “Guest Bedroom” with a Queen Sized Bed. There is lots of space left over for other furniture pieces.


The Secondary Bathroom has a 4′-6″ vanity.  It is large enough for several kids to have space in a drawer or on the counter.  There is a Tub / Shower Combo in this bathroom.  This bathroom is located between Bedroom 2 and 3 for easy access.

The Laundry Room is on the 2nd floor with all the bedrooms (to save you from running up and down the stairs with all the clothes). There is also a huge linen closet up there too!


Tenant Pic:

Laundry Room. Tenant says the washer and dryer are a little difficult to get up the stairs, but LOVE the fact that they don’t have to carry all the laundry to the first floor to do laundry.



This linen closet is extra deep.  There is space between the 16″ deep shelves and door so that you can store your ironing board, or an upright vacuum cleaner. Your luggage would probably fit under the bottom shelf.


  The back yard is fully fenced.  It’s small, which means very little mowing is required. Perfectly private! The yard is TINY, therefore, very little mowing will be required.

Fuzzy Kilt World

Hi, Y’all!

I am a home designer, not an interior decorator, but I design the HOUSE (structure) itself and I’m a girl . . . (gasp!).

In designing a new home, my goal is to get all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, closets, living areas, etc., in the right spot, within the square footage you want (or can afford to build) and the ultimate goal is to NEVER have space left over in planning (SLOIP). I thrive on the challenge of the “hard-to-fit” building lot, massaging the design so that you can get the house you want in the footprint available. Designing Tiny Homes is my ultimate challenge. I often dream houses, for this reason I keep a drawing pad beside my bed so I can sketch it out and actually remember it the next morning. Most times, it’s a great idea. (Most days.)

DISCLAIMER: I do not know how to spell. I know some pretty good grammar, but sometimes I just ignore it. I tend to use southern talkin’, so you’ll just have to interpret it as best as you can. Most days I remember to use the proper words, there, their, or they’re or maybe Sale or Sell, but I don’t promise to be perfect. So, now that you know I ask that you at least be kind in your comments.

I hope you like it, I’d love to read your comments as well, if you have design questions, I’d love to help you answer those questions. I do a lot of free sketches… within reason. If this gets out of control, at some point I will have to charge, but I don’t have that much faith in my blogging abilities at the moment. Hope to see you around!

  1. Hello, There’s no doubt that your website could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.

    Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.

    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick
    heads up! Besides that, great site!

    1. Thanks for the head’s up. Didn’t realize IE had issues. I’ll have to check into that. This is a new blog site, so I’m sure there will be some bugs to work out, thanks for stopping by, though. I hope it will turn into a big site for bigger and better things.
