What Can Make or Break Your Application

System - Thursday, October 4, 2018

When you submit an application there are several factors that are taken into consideration before your application is approved or denied.  Most important….BE HONEST….make sure everything you are putting on your application is truthful.  If you do not disclose any felonies or misdemeanors you may have or have had, and then we pull your criminal record and it says otherwise, there is a good chance you will be denied.  Obviously, your credit score is also taken into account.  We may contact you for copies of your most recent paystubs to verify your income if you have a lower credit score.  A lack of rental history is something that is hard for us to overlook because we do often call previous landlords for references.  Without some sort of rental history, it’s hard for us to justify to our owners that you would be a good tenant.  And lastly, the amount of pets you have.  Our owners will typically only accept 1 pet.  Just keep that in mind if you have multiple.  There is a “Notes” section on our applications that you can explain any situations/history you may feel is applicable regarding anything you have put on your application.  We do try to work with as many people as we can, but at the same time, we are also working for the owners of our properties.
