1. Screening Requirements: A credit report, criminal and eviction searches are all part of the screening process. Third-party verifications of rental history and income are also performed. Self-employed applicants are also required to produce proof of income including tax returns, if necessary. Minimum credit score of 650 is required unless Owner approved, in which case an increased deposit may also be required. Additional deposit may be required for rental or employment history of less than 3 years.
2. Prospective residents should understand that the responsibilities for renting a house are different than for renting an apartment. In most instances, anyone looking to rent a house should expect to provide their own pest control, if desired and to provide all maintenance unless otherwise agreed. Examples include - landscape maintenance, cleaning of rain gutters, filter changes, etc. Property Owners pay for repairs and replacements due to normal wear and tear and age. House renters are generally required to maintain the property unless otherwise stated in the contract.
3. All Residents are required to obtain and carry Renters' Insurance at all times.
