Rental Selection Criteria

We are delighted that you are interested in leasing a dwelling in our community. In order to help you in making your decision, we have listed below the criteria for qualifying as a resident with us.

  • A separate rental application must be fully completed, dated and signed by each applicant. Spouses can complete one rental application.
  • The rental application will be reviewed when submitted to ensure we have all information needed to determine your eligibility.
  • Each applicant must provide a government photo identification and allow it to be photocopied.
  • Applicants who are first-time renters or who do not have sufficient income under the bullet point 6 below, may qualify by having the lease guaranteed by a guarantor. The guarantor must have a gross monthly income of at least four (4) times the monthly rent and must meet all other qualifying criteria (adjustments can be made, dependent upon monthly expenditures). The guarantor must complete and sign a lease guaranty agreement. The lease may be guaranteed only by a relative or employer. Guarantors may be held responsible for the entire rent and other costs, such as damages, as long as you live at this property.
  • If applicant’s family will be occupying the dwelling, the family size must be appropriate for the available home, i.e., no more than three adults and four children per home
  • Employment and monthly income must be verifiable. The home rent must be within 25-30% of the monthly net income of the applicant. (Otherwise, a guarantor is necessary.)

    (B) Incomplete application by any applicant.
    (C) Insufficient income (total of all applicants)
    (D) Criminal conviction history of violent or sexual crime committed by an applicant or by other occupants (including children) who plan to live in unit. Each case will be reviewed and decisions will be made based upon the conviction, type of conviction, age of applicant at the time of conviction, date of conviction, and other factors that may considered during the review process.
    (E) Poor credit history of any applicant, although applicants can be approved with additional deposits as determined at the time of application.

No un-neutered male cats are allowed. We only allow a maximum of three (3) pets per household and only two (2) of them being indoor pets.
