Application and Screening Process

To qualify for one of our homes you will need to:

The following policies are established to ensure that all prospective applicants will be treated equally:

Application Process+

We screen our applicants very carefully. Your application will be processed promptly and we can usually have a decision made within one business day. In order to speed the process along, please be sure we have all the necessary information on your application. Each adult who will live in the property must complete a separate application. Full time students living with parents at the property do not need to fill out an application. Students must provide proof of enrollment.

Assuming your application passes the screening criteria, you will be contacted to get all the information needed to fill out the lease offer. If you do not pass, you will receive an adverse action notice through email. The lease offer is published to you electronically so there is no need for a printer or fax machine! When we are working on publishing the lease offer you will need to provide the security deposit in certified funds.

If you have Furry Friends (Pets)+

We may not allow certain types of dogs that may have violent tendencies if mixed with other dogs. Examples of dogs that may not be allowed are Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, German Shepherds, Huskies, Chows or mixed breed with any of the above. Owners reserve the right to deny any dog, so speak with your leasing agent prior to applying. There may be a limit to the number of pets allowed. There will be additional security deposit requirements for any pet. Renters are responsible for checking city rules and regulations regarding their pet before signing a lease.

Criminal Criteria+

Ensuring resident safety and protecting property are often considered to be among the fundamental responsibilities of a housing provider therefore a criminal records report will be run on every applicant. A conviction, guilty plea or no contest plea in the last 7 years for any felony or misdemeanor, related to the following things will be grounds for denial. Violent crimes (such as murder, robbery, assault, forcible rape, child abuse), intimidation, sex related, the selling, distribution or production of any illegal drugs, property crimes or damage, arson, property vandalism, forgery or counterfeiting (including writing bad checks), weapons charges, criminal trespass, kidnapping, theft, or prostitution will also be grounds for denial. These are activities that could be deemed harmful or threatening to the health and safety of an individual, the rental property, neighborhood or property of others.

Pending charges or outstanding warrants for any of the steps in our screening process will result in a suspension of the application until the situation is resolved. Properties will not be held off the market while awaiting resolution of pending charges. Application fees will not be refunded while waiting for the resolution or if the application is withdrawn during the waiting period.

Rental Scoring+

Rental scoring treats all applicants consistently and impartially.  Many property owners rely upon "Rental Scores" to estimate the relative financial risk of leasing a property to you. In addition to estimating risk, rental scores are an objective and consistent way of reviewing relevant applicant information, and help speed the application approval process.

Lack of ability to fulfill any of our qualifications may justify an increase in monthly rent, or disapproval of an application.

How is my rental score determined?
Rental scoring systems assign points to certain factors identified as having a statistical correlation to future financial lease performance.

Your rental score results from a mathematical analysis of information found in your credit report, application and previous rental history. Such information may include your bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts you have, collection actions, outstanding debt, income, and the number of inquiries in your consumer report. The final number or rental score represents an estimated level of risk as compared to the performance of other consumers in a range of scores. Because your rental score is based upon real data and statistics, it is more reliable than subjective methods of evaluating your information.

Any open or discharged bankruptcies in the last 12 months will likely result in denial of your application.

Any evictions or landlord collections will result in automatic denial of your application.

Where can I have my score explained? +

Should your application be denied based upon your rental score, you can learn which factors most negatively influenced your score, by contacting the consumer reporting agency listed on the denial form that would be sent to you if your application is denied. Additionally, you can obtain a free copy of your consumer report if you make the request to the consumer reporting agency within 60 days of the denial.

This information also serves as the Megan's Law notification. Most states have established mechanisms for the community to access specific information about registered sex offenders. This information may be available via the Internet, a visit to a local law enforcement agency, or by an actual notification to your home or public school. Contact for assistance in accessing information in your community. In addition, you can go to the nationwide registry area of our state and select your state to access the link to your state's Internet registry.
