Our goal is to provide a safe clean living environment for every resident to enjoy. As such, we perform criminal background, and credit checks on every resident over the age of 18.
We employ a blended approach to applicant screening in that we blend an applicant’s income, the apartment’s lease rate, and credit history to form a risk assessment score provided by CoreLogic. Consequently, an approved applicant could be strong in one area and weak in another. After an applicant’s ability to pay is assessed, a criminal background check is performed.
As a general rule, we prefer applicants with an income three times the rental rate. But this is a general rule of thumb an not an automatic dis-qualifier. We do work with HUD administered Section 8 but not with privately funded housing programs. We also accept co-signers.
The risk assessment score determines three possible courses of action. The first is approved. In this case, the applicant is not required to provide any further documentation. The second is approved with conditions. In this case, the applicant is required to provide two of their most recent pay stubs. There is no increase in security deposit. The third is decline.
At the lease signing, each applicant must show legal identification. If you are not sure if your identification will satisfy please give us a call.
Please note, evictions are not an automatic dis-qualifier. As stated, they appear in the overall risk assessment score and will be weighed along with other credit items.
All money is paid through our on-line partners of ZellePay. We highly recommend ZellePay because it is a free secure service supported by your major banking institution. We also utilize RentPayment.com for applicants or residents to pay small balances such as an application fee.
