All Adults Must SUBMIT A RENTAL APPLICATION

All persons aged 18+ who will live or “stay part time” in the property, must submit their own application and sign the lease if approved. All applicants must complete and sign their own applications – friends, family members, partners, and roommates must not submit applications on behalf of others. We will not process any application if we find evidence that it was submitted by another person. Any application containing false information will result in automatic denial. Application fee PER adult = $40

Online Application

Applications can be made online or through email, for online please use the “Apply” link next to property listing.

PLEASE NOTE: At landlord’s discretion, compensating factors such as an additional security deposit or co-signer (guarantor) may be required for qualification if Applicant fails to meet any one of the above requirements. In the event of multiple applicants, tenancy will be granted to the most qualified, based on the above criteria.

Identification

All rental applicants must submit a clear copy of government ID. The ID must be current and valid, and all numbers must be clearly visible. Most applicants simply snap a picture of the ID with their phones and upload the photo.

Animals

If pets are allowed at a particular property, we require all pets to be screened. It is the owner’s decision on what types of pets are allowed. There will be a pet deposit and/or fee, depending on the number of pets (Application Fee: $20 for first pet and $15 for each additional pet) and their screening score. All applicants with assistive animals must also complete a Pet Request at no charge to the applicant. ALL tenants are responsible for damage caused by animals.

Proof of Income

We require verifiable income at least 3 times the amount of rent. All applicants must submit current proof of income. This can be:

  • 2 most recent pay stubs (if paid bi-monthly) or 4 most recent (if paid weekly)

  • Job transfer letter (if new to the area)

  • 3 most recent monthly bank statements with deposit history

  • Most recent tax return

 

Credit History

We do not approve applicants with unpaid utility bills, unpaid landlord debt, unpaid payday / personal loan debt, credit scores below 480, or late payments within the past 4 months.

 

Note: We do not use credit scores from sources like “Credit Karma” or “MyFico” – those are almost always inaccurate. We use credit reports and scores from one of the three large credit reporting agencies. Both statistical and historical analysis have shown that an applicant’s overall credit rating directly affects the risk and likelihood of default, damages and unpaid rent. Applicants with a lower credit score pose a significantly higher risk.

Rental History

We do not approve applicants with any evictions in the past 5 years. Applicants must not have any unpaid debt to previous landlords or property managers. Rental history must be verifiable. You can help speed up the verification process by asking your current landlord or property manager to respond to our request. Applicants with no landlord reference may need a Double Security Deposit.

Applicants with no rental history or more than 3 late rent payments may need an increased Security Deposit for approval. Applicants with evictions in the past 7 years (but more than 5 years) may need increased Security Deposit.

Criminal History

We do not approve applicants with history of offenses of bodily harm, illegal manufacture or distribution of a controlled substance, or intentional damage or destruction of property (for example, “arson”), within the past 7 years. We may also decline applicants with any sexual related offenses from any time period. We do not approve registered sex offenders, or anyone with active, unresolved criminal cases.

 

Overall

We use a rental application grading system that takes all aspects of the application into account. We process completed applications in the order received. A completed application means all supporting documents were received. If one application is missing something, and another application comes in complete, we will process the completed application first. In the case of multiple applications, we reserve the right to accept the most qualified with respect to credit, rental history, income or employment history, and/or criminal history.

False statements on any application = automatic decline. Any application submitted using someone else’s personal information = automatic decline.

residential property management Application Fees

Application fees are not refundable. It is up to the applicant to submit complete, accurate, verifiable documents and information.
