Rental Properties & Resident Information

Looking for a rental property?

Resident Selection Criteria 


  1. Demonstrated ability to pay rent on time.

  2. References from former landlords (endorsement from at least two are needed). All prospective residents must provide previous landlords’ name, address, and phone number.

  3. Credit references. Credit checks will be used in addition to rent payment history. If the credit check reveals previous judgments for landlords, applicants will not be selected. Consideration may be given to applicants with some faulty credit history who can demonstrate a history of rent payments being current and can gather positive references from 2 or 3 previous landlords. 

  4. The applicant was/is able to fulfill obligations and comply with all terms of the previous/current rental agreement.

  5. All prospective residents are required to have a criminal background check completed and approved before signing a rental lease.

  2. No felony convictions.

  3. No convictions of any property damage, theft, burglary, fraud, violent, or terroristic, sexual related or drug-related crimes.

  4. No pending criminal charges.

  5. Two years of verifiable positive rental history.

  6. The income of at least 2.5 times the monthly rent for the unit. (If an applicant receives rental assistance – that may be counted towards income.)

Applicants are notified as to their status with each receiving a written or verbal notice detailing selection, rejection or waiting list placement. Reasons for rejection may include:

  1. A record of unfavorable past performance of nonpayment including rent and utilities.

  2. A record of disruptive behavior.

  3. A record of destruction of property.

  4. A record of poor living or housekeeping habits.

  5. A history of criminal activity involving crimes of physical violence to persons, animals or property, or a record of other criminal acts which may endanger the health, safety or welfare of other residents.

  7. An applicant has current or recent problems involving chemical or drug dependency resulting in any of the other reasons for non-selection.

  8. Applicant’s household characteristics are not appropriate for the size or type of units that are available. The current occupancy guideline is no more than two people per bedroom.

  9. The applicant has a history of activities that would be injurious to the reputation of the property and/or be likely to cause an increase in the rate of hazard insurance on the property.

  10. The applicant purposely falsified, misrepresented or withheld information or submitted inaccurate and/or incomplete information on any application.

  11. The applicant refuses to comply with housing program requirements, policies and/or procedures (i.e. failure to sign and submit relevant forms, consents, releases, etc.).
