Application Criteria

Application Criteria

We are an equal housing provider and comply with all federal, state, and local fair housing and anti-discrimination laws.

1. Source of Income/Verification of Income: Gross income for all approved occupants of the apartment must be at least 3 times the monthly rent amount. Income must be verified, and each applicant must provide a job history for a minimum of 6 consecutive months. If employment is not verified by your employer, we require the past 30 days of the most recent pay stubs or the prior years tax returns if self-employed. Income associated with attending school will be accepted as an alternative to employment provided it can be verified. Failure to provide income verification will result in the automatic denial of the application.

2. Credit: All applicants must provide a valid, government-issued photo ID, and a valid social security number or tax identification number. A credit report will be processed on each applicant using a 3rd-party verification service. Applicant authorizes Landlord to complete a credit and criminal screening report. Credit for the past 3 years will be evaluated and scored based on payment history including but not limited to collections, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and civil judgments. Student loans and medical accounts do not affect this calculation. Applicants with an open bankruptcy case will not be accepted.

3. Residency/Rental History: Rental/Residency history for a minimum of 12 months is required and all addresses will be verified. We reserve the right to deny an application for unresolved debts to a previous landlord, eviction judgments, or non-compliance with any terms of a previous lease contract or community policies. Rental verifications provided by family members or friends will not be considered valid proof of residency. If no verifiable rental history, either a qualified guarantor or participation in a third-party security deposit replacement program called Rhino (where Rhino is available) will be required for otherwise qualified applicants.

4. Guarantor: A guarantor may be used, subject to our discretion. The guarantor must complete a Guarantor Pre-leasing application, pay the application fee, meet all application criteria, sign all required paperwork before the applicant moves in. If the guarantor is not available to sign the required documents in person a notarized copy of all paperwork will be accepted.

5. Criminal Background Checks: Criminal background checks are required on all applicants. If it is found that an applicant has a conviction for a serious violation or felony, this may be cause for an automatic disqualification and application denial. Below are some examples of convictions we do not accept, but this list is NOT exhaustive. The complete criminal screening criteria is available upon request.
  • We do not accept any homicide, kidnapping, arson or sex crimes against persons.
  • We do not accept any felony within ten (10) years.
  • We do not accept convictions for misdemeanor theft, burglary, robbery, fraud, embezzlement, bad checks, domestic crimes, prostitution, vandalism, or weapons crimes within five (5) years.
  • We do not accept more than three (3) total convictions within five (5) years.
6. Occupancy: Maximum occupancy is 2 persons per bedroom, plus 1 (certain exceptions apply in accordance with relevant law). An application is required for all applicants 18 years or older who are not legally incapacitated. All occupants over the age of 18 must sign the Lease.

This document is not a lease nor guarantee of occupancy but rather an information sheet to be used while the application is processed.
