What do you need to qualify to rent?
When you turn in an application, we will:
Call your previous landlord references. Be sure to provide the names and telephone numbers (home & work preferred) of, at minimum, 3 previous years worth of rental history from individuals not related to you.
Be sure to include your move-in and move-out dates and the exact house or apartment number. If you had a roommate on the lease contract, their name would be helpful as a point of reference, as well.
Verify your income source and level:
Your legal and verifiable monthly income should be at least 3 times the rental amount. If you are self-employed please provide your latest tax returns as well as 3 months worth of bank statements. Please contact of your references so they know we will be calling. If your employer is a large company that does not provide verification, please provide at least one fullmonth of pay stubs.
Pull a credit report for each applicant:
We use the credit report to tell us if you have a history of honoring contractual agreements and paying bills on time. If you have open collections to a previous landlord, your application will be automatically denied. If you have a low credit score (below 550) you will be denied.
Check the courts for prior criminal and civil actions:
We obtain a national criminal history search to see if you have any felony convictions or domestic assault and abuse convictions. If there is a felony, drug conviction, or domestic assault and abuse conviction within the past 7 years, the application will be automatically denied.
