Single or married resident(s) must present verifiable gross income of at least 3 times the monthly rent rate. Roommates must each qualify at an income of 3 times their portion of the monthly rent. Allowances, alimony, child support, and other income require verification.
Income from occupants will not be considered in meeting income criteria. Roommates’ portions are based on the number of roommates, i.e. half of rent each if two roommates, one third each if three and so on. Paycheck stubs are acceptable verification of employment and income. Self-employment persons must provide the previous year’s personal income tax return and the previous two month’s personal bank statements as evidence of sufficient income. Persons who hold jobs that are commission only, or base salary plus commissions, tips, or bonuses will be considered self-employment. All verifiable sources of income will be considered, including child support, proof of social security income, pension, or automatic deposits. Savings Accounts or Certificated of Deposits with a balance of three times the yearly rental rate will be considered as adequate income. Canceled checks that establish patterns are acceptable verification for third party support, such as from a parent to child or child to retired party.
Credit history must reflect no more than 3 negative items reported to be over 60 days past due or charged to collection in the last two years. A credit report will be reviewed. Only the immediate past two years’ history will be reviewed. A negative report will be an account that is 60 days past due. It will not include bankruptcy providing the bankruptcy has been discharged, or foreclosure, in which event credit history (two years minimum) since the foreclosure will be considered. Medical expenses and student loans are ignored. Any judgment from a utility provider must be satisfied. Credit reports are also an additional source of address, social security, mortgage, and employment verification. International prospects may present a valid passport in lieu of a residential history or credit reporting in the U.S. A credit report will still be run on any international prospect with a social security number.

Stable employment history and income verification for a minimum of one year at current or previous employer. Employment tenure, past or present, is not a qualification criteria in itself. If the employer represents that the applicant is currently employed, or will be shortly, they qualify with respect to employment. A letter of intent to hire from the employer should be requested, in the event employment has not yet begun. Verbal verification, along with paycheck stubs, is acceptable verification. The personal income tax return will evidence the sources and amount of income for someone who is self-employed. Personal bank statements will evidence expenditures and deposits. Retirees must provide proof of income for the past year (personal income tax return, W-2, or proof of automatic deposits for pensions or retirement SSI).
