I am applying to go to college in kansas and need housing in order to attend. How would I apply for a three bedroom in jopes to move in this summer.
We are located in Lyons, Kan., and only handle housing for our facilities (Park Place and Kingswood Apartments). We do not handle all of Kansas. Your email was not specific if you would be locating to our area? On the application page of our website is a tab to print our application. You would complete and return to us to be added to our waiting list. We are public housing regulated through HUD so in order to qualify for a 3 bedroom unit there would need to be 3-6 people to house.
If you should have any questions when filling out the application, please feel free to contact us.
I do not have great credit but am a single mother of 1 moving to the city of Lyons. Could I get approved with a co signer?
I would like to clarify your question? Are you meaning to purchase a home? Or to fill out an application for public housing? We do not need co-signers for public housing applications.
I meant for public housing. Could I still be accepted I’d my credit isn’t good?
We typically look at if you owe utilities or other creditor such as HUD housing. If you have a lot of medical bills, we do not consider those. Not so much the credit score as to whom you owe. We house people with no score. Hope this helps?
Of course I have a few more questions in private and through email and will be getting an application filled out snd asking soon but does both place accept people of all ages within your guidelines of course otherwise?
Yes, we are open to the public. We are public housing regulated through HUD with lots of regulations and rules. We are income base, 30% of your gross income. An applicant must be at least 18 years old to apply. If you are looking for a place soon, I recommend filling out an application ASAP. We work a waiting list and have a few waiting for housing.
Hi! Do people living in your apartments have to be there full time, or can they travel as they want and be gone for months at a time (with someone checking in the apartment- but not living there- while there gone)? Thank you!
Here is the public housing policy:
Absence means that no member of the family is residing in the unit. The family may be absent from the unit for up to 30 days. The family must request permission from the Lyons Housing Authority for absences exceeding 30 days. The Lyons Housing Authority will make a determination within five (5) business days of the request. An authorized absence may not exceed 90 days. Any family absent for more than 30 days without authorization the unit will be considered abandoned and result will be lease termination.
Authorized absences may include, but are not limited to:
1. Prolonged hospitalization.
2. Absences beyond the control of the family (i.e., death in the family, other family member illness).
3. Other absences that are deemed necessary by the Lyons Housing Authority.
Hope this answers your question. Let us know if you need further assistance.
Thank you! This answered the question.
You have made no mention of Handicap accessible apts. Have you any?
Yes, we do have one-bedrooms. It will need to be indicated on your application so we can arrange to have available.
Hi, Are there any 1 befdroom, handicapped available now? Needing a home on Sat.
Carol, again, it’s an application process. You would need to be approved before housing. I would have to give a tenant 30 days notice to vacate/transfer to another apartment. If I could get them to move earlier, I would. Then we would have an apartment available.
