Minimum Requirements for Application Approval

  • Debt to Income ratio must be below 50%. Debt to income is calculated by adding the monthly rent amount plus any monthly payments that appear on the credit report (monthly car payments + monthly credit card payments + monthly student loan payments, etc.) and dividing this total amount by gross monthly income (before tax income.)  This ratio must be below 50%.
  • No judgments, collections, or evictions from prior landlords.
  • Minimum of 1 year of strong, verifiable rental history with verification obtained directly from prior or current landlords.  12 months of cancelled checks or alternative acceptable documentation will be required when family member is listed as landlord.
  • All applicants must have a minimum credit score of 550.
  • Self-employed applicants must be self-employed for a minimum of 2 years with proof of income (bank statements, w2’s, paystubs if applicable, or tax returns, etc.)  If NSF charges or negative balances are shown on bank statements, this is automatic grounds for application denial.
