The occupancy standard per home is two (2) persons per bedroom, plus one (1) - subject to local laws. Residents who exceed these occupancy standards during the lease term will be required, upon the end of the current lease term, to either: i. transfer into another available home with more bedrooms; or ii. move out.
All individuals 18 years of age or older residing in the home are required to complete an application, undergo the screening process, and provide the necessary documentation, valid government-issued photo identification, and application fee. These requirements also apply to any changes to the leaseholders during the term of the lease. Dependents 18 years of age or older must undergo a criminal background check and provide the necessary documentation and application fee. The application fee is non-refundable.
All applications are reviewed following established screening criteria and using services of TransUnion, a third-party screening provider, for credit and criminal background checks. TransUnion Dispute Department is located at P.O. Box 2000, Chester, PA 19016 and can be reached by visiting www. transunion.com or calling 888-710-0270.
Applicants must have a minimum combined gross income of 3.0 times the monthly rent.
A credit report will be obtained on all Applicants to verify credit ratings. Income plus verification of credit history will be entered into a credit screening model to determine rental eligibility and security deposit levels. There are three screening results: approval, approval with extra deposit, or denial. Unfavorable accounts which will negatively influence this score include, but are not limited to: inquiries, collections, foreclosures, charge-off, repossession, absence of credit, and current delinquency. Debt to a previous landlord, and open bankruptcies will result in an automatic denial of the application. Depending upon the screening result, an extra deposit of half to a full month’s rent may be required subject to local or state laws.
A criminal background check will be conducted for each Applicant and Occupant eighteen (18) years of age or older. All criminal records are evaluated from the date of disposition, regardless of the Applicant’s or Occupant’s age at the time such offense was committed. The application will be denied for any felony conviction up to six (6) years prior to the application date (subject to local laws/requirements). The application will be denied for any felony conviction for any sex and/or terrorism related offense(s) regardless of conviction date. Please remember that this requirement does not constitute a guarantee or representation that Residents or Occupants currently residing in our homes have not been convicted of or subject to deferred adjudication for a felony or sex offense requiring registration under applicable law. There may be Residents or Occupants that have resided in one of our homes prior to this requirement going into effect. Additionally, our ability to verify this information is limited to the information made available to us by the resident background and credit reporting services used.
Some credit scoring results will necessitate an evaluation of verifiable rental or mortgage payment history. Applications also depend on the results of a rental history investigation for an approval/ denial determination. Applications for residency will automatically be denied for current outstanding debt or eviction.
The application fee must be paid online via credit card or bank account before submitting your completed application. The information you submit will be used to initiate the processing of your application, beginning with a credit and criminal background screening.
We must verify the information you provided before issuing a full approval, so please be prepared to upload supporting documentation with your initial application.
While your application is valid for 30 days, the home will be placed back on the market if you are unable to comply with any requests for income or identity information.
Your requested move-in date is contingent upon management approval. Move-in must occur within 14 days of application or sooner, depending upon house availability and market-specific requirements.
