There is a $40 application fee per person that is non-refundable. This fee is paid directly to TransUnion (one of the three major credit bureaus) to provide a credit, employment, and criminal background check. This will NOT impact your credit score.
If a co-signer or parental guarantee is required, they must also pay an application fee to provide a credit and background check
Valid government-issued picture ID (driver's license, military ID, passport, etc.) and social security/tax ID card
Once approved, a security deposit and signed lease is required to secure the property; the property is not considered rented until we have the deposit and signed lease
Monthly gross income of all applicants should be equal to or above three (3) times the monthly rent
Tax returns, bank statements, paychecks, or employer confirmation are acceptable income verifiers
Students will need a parent/guardian to co-sign as a parental guarantee that must be notarized. They will need to complete an application, meet all credit and income guidelines, and pay a $40 application fee as well.
Unemployed individual(s) applicants will need to provide some form of verifiable income source
Self-employed applicants will be required to show proof of income through copies of the previous year's tax returns and last three months of bank statements.
A credit score below 600
Any active, past-due accounts on credit report
Any judgments or collection efforts filed by past landlord or property management companies
Most felony convictions within the past 7 years and most misdemeanor convictions
Any past unlawful detainer action or eviction within the last 3 years
Any discrepancies between the rental application and verified information
No. Since we partner with TransUnion's tenant screening service, the rental applicant and any co-signers or parental guarantors initiates the release of his or her own data from the credit bureau. The resulting inquiry is considered a soft inquiry, which does not impact his or her credit score.
