What does your application process involve in terms of paperwork?

If you do not have current paystubs, you may upload your last 2 years of tax statements, but you must also provide proof of employment. You can upload these documents during the online application process.

On my application what criteria is looked at to be considered for a property?

We check your rental history, employment, income, credit, a criminal background check and the ability to keep the home maintained and cared for.

Do you allow for people with a bankruptcy or bad credit? Should I even bother to apply?

All applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis with all factors considered. Each owner we represent may have different standards. At times some owners have overlooked bankruptcy and/or bad credit. We explore all aspects including your actual credit report, ability to afford the rent, a stable income and current and past rental references. It’s also important to explain your situation and alert us if you expect your credit to be negative or if you have a criminal history.

If my application is accepted, how much of my deposit is due before I may move in?

The first month’s rent and the required security deposits must be paid in full with separate cashier’s checks or money orders prior to move in.
