Rental Guideline and Policies

All applications are processed without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap or national origin of the applicant.

Credit Check

  • The credit check depends on the type of rental unit.  Applicants do not need to have perfect credit but it can not be bad either.
  • Premium rental units in more desirable neighborhoods will require good-standing credit. 

Civil and Criminal Search

  • Have you ever been evicted?
  • Have you ever been arrested?
  • Have you ever been in litigation with a landlord?
  • We do a sexual predator search.
  • We  do  a national terrorist search.
  • Most rental units require a clean criminal record for at least 5 years.  Typically a DUI or misdemeanors does not mean an applicant is automatically rejected.  However, applicants with violent felonies and recent drug related arrests should not apply and will automatically be rejected.   

Rental History

  • How often were your rental payments late?
  • Did you abide by the terms of your lease?
  • Did you have an outstanding bill at the end of the rental contract?
  • Did you receive any complaints against you or your guests?
  • What condition did you leave the premises in?
  • A previous eviction will not prevent your application from being approved as long as you paid any remaining balance.  However, if you owe any landlord any outstanding bill for any reason , your application will be automatically rejected. 
  • Please note: Roommates, friends and family members are not acceptable references.

Employment and Income Check

  • Are you employed or have another source of income?
  • How long have you been employed or receiving another source of income?
  • Is your income verifiable and at least 3.5 times rent?
