We are an equal opportunity housing provider. We fully comply with the Federal Fair Housing Act. We do not discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws.
Property availability policy. Properties become available when the former resident turns in keys to our office. We update our list of available properties as properties become available. A property that was unavailable in the morning may become available later that same day.
Occupancy guidelines. To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on plumbing and other building systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in a property. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair housing laws. We allow two persons per bedroom. For example, a one-bedroom property can house two people and a two-bedroom property can house four people.
Application process. We evaluate every property application in the following manner. You must submit a rental application and answer all questions on the form. You must pay a $40 non-refundable application fee. We will determine from your responses to the application questions, whether you qualify for the property you are applying for. If you do not, we will provide an adverse action on your application. If you do qualify, we will proceed to screen your application by checking your credit report, criminal history, and employment and rental references to confirm that they meet our rental criteria. If you meet our criteria, we will approve your application. This process typically takes about 48 hours. We will rent available properties to applicants in the order that their applications are approved. Each resident over the age of 18 must submit a separate rental application or be added to the main application under the co-applicant section.
Rental criteria. To qualify for a rental property with our company, you must meet the following criteria:
Income. Your monthly income must be at least three times the monthly rent. You must be able to prove at least one year of employment immediately preceding the date of your application. If you have been a full-time student at any time within the past year, we will require you to have your lease guaranteed by a co-signer. If you are not employed, you must provide proof of a source of income.
You must have satisfactory rental references from at least one prior landlord. Time spent living with family members will not apply to your rental history. If you have ever been evicted or sued for any lease violation, we will reject your application unless the eviction was for non-payment of rent and the account has been settled satisfactorily.
Credit history. Your credit record must currently be satisfactory. If your credit history shows any unpaid items for utilities or former landlords, we will reject your application unless you pay the items in full and show proof of payment or submit an additional security deposit equal to one month’s rent.
Guarantors. If you do not meet one or more of the above criteria, you may be able to qualify for a property if you can get a third party to guarantee your lease. The guarantor must pass the same application and screening process that you must pass, except that we will deduct the guarantor’s own housing costs before applying his or her income to our income standard.
Criminal history. If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony involving dishonesty, violence or drugs within the past five years, we will reject your application.
We use a third-party pet screening service. All Applicants must create a tenant-only or a Pet/Animal Profile via the link below, or from the link on the application sceen. If you have pets, there is an additional $20 a month pet rent PER PET. The additional pet rent will not be charged the first month due to the cost of setting up the Pet Profiles. There is a maximum of 5 pets per house and a maximum of 2 pets per apartment, 30 lb weight limit applies for apartments.
