  • Do you or any household member have more than one outstanding collection and/or charge off and/or currently past due account (excluding medical and student loans) with a cumulative unpaid balance of $1,000 or more within the past year?*
    (If yes, please note that this individual’s income may not be able to be counted toward the household’s rent approval amount)
  • Are you or any household member on any OFAC sanctions lists, including the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons lists, or a registered sex offender or sexual predator or otherwise subject to reporting requirements of any state, territorial, or tribal sex offender registry?
  • Do you or any household member have any felony conviction(s) with the latest disposition, release, or parole date within 6 years?

Important considerations before applying

Residents are allowed up to three pets (cats or dogs) with a max weight limit of 180 pounds total. The following dog breeds are not allowed (including partial): Doberman, Pitbull, Rottweiler or Mastiff. Livestock/farm animal pets such as pigs, horses, chickens, goats, etc are not allowed. Aquariums are limited to 20 gallons, and exotic, venomous and verminous pets are not allowed. There is a $300 per pet fee. This fee is due with the required deposit and is refundable in the event you purchase the home. Otherwise, it is not refundable. Please note that service and support animals are excluded from the pet policy requirements but may require further documentation to qualify as such.

The process can generally take 35-45 days from the time the leasing company goes under contract to buy a home until you may be able to move in. Make sure you have sufficient time in your moving plans for this general timeframe and understand it may change depending on the circumstances of a particular situation.
