Resident Application Process

Becoming a part of Friendsview starts with completing an intent list application, then working closely with marketing staff when there are openings and you‘re ready to seriously consider a move.


  1. Prospective residents submit an Intent List Application that lists their preferred residence(s). When openings occur, residents on transfer lists are contacted first, followed by intent list applicants with the earliest application date. Intent list applicants may decline openings and retain their place on the list, including instructions to not call until a specified date.

  2. Once an applicant is contacted and is interested in an available residence, he or she makes a $5,000 earnest money payment (applied toward the entrance fee) and submits medical and financial application materials. Upon approval of the medical and financial state of the applicant by the review committee, a letter of approval is issued. Friendsview‘s minimum age requirement is 62.

  3. Depending on the residence, applicants may choose interior finishes, which may include carpeting, vinyl and laminates. Upgrades are available for additional fees.

  4. Within 45 days, an appointment is scheduled to care for the following:

•  Signing residency agreement
•  Paying entrance fee balance
•  Receiving keys and other items included with their neighborhood amenities
