Applicant Screening Criteria

To facilitate your move, we have outlined the criteria for the approval of your application. We hope by doing so you will be comfortable to proceed with the application process.

Income Eligibility
Rent should exceed three times your gross monthly income. All sources of income included on your application will be considered and verified. We seek to verify a minimum 2 years of employment history.

Prior Evictions
If a judgement of eviction has been entered against you within the last five (5) years your application will be denied.

Credit History
Your application will be denied if a money judgement has been entered against you within the last five (5) years and you have not satisfied the judgement by paying all monies owed. Your application will also be denied if your credit report indicates that you have an account that is past due more than sixty (60) days. If you have only one minimally past due account your application may still be considered if a reasonable explanation for the delinquency is provided.

  1. References
    Current and previous landlords will be contacted to verify your residency, timeliness of rental payments and other residency related issues. Public records are reviewed for any recorded landlord complaints. We seek to verify a minimum of 3 years residential history.

Criminal Convictions
If you have been convicted of manufacturing or distributing a controlled substance as defined in sec. 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802) your application will be denied. If you have been convicted of any other crime that shows a demonstrable risk to tenant safety and/or property within the past six (6) years your application may be denied after consideration of the nature and severity of the crime and the amount of time that has passed since the criminal conduct occurred. Additional factors may also be considered on a case by case basis. You should provide any mitigating information or documentation that you would like to be considered regarding any prior conviction along with your application.

 

CO-SIGNER/GUARANTOR

A COSIGNER/GUARANTOR AND/OR ADDITIONAL SECURITY DEPOSIT MAY BE REQUIRED IN THE CASE OF ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: 1) Unsatisfactory credit rating; 2) Unsatisfactory income requirements. If you do not meet one or more of the above criteria, you may be able to qualify for an apartment with a third-party guarantor. The guarantor must pass the same application and credit screening process that you must pass, except the gross monthly income of the guarantor must equal 4 times the rental amount of the apartment.
