Rental Qualification Guidelines +

OCCUPANCY POLICY:

  1. Occupancy is based on the number of bedrooms in a unit. (A bedroom is defined as a habitable room that is intended to be used primarily for sleeping purposes, contains at least 70 square feet and is configured so as to take the need for a fire exit into account.)
  2. The general rule is two persons are allowed per bedroom. Owner/Agent may adopt a more liberal occupancy standard based on factors such as size and configuration of the unit, size and configuration of the bedrooms, and whether any occupants will be infants.

GENERAL STATEMENTS:

  1. Current, positive, government-issued photo identification that allows Owner/Agent to adequately screen for criminal and or credit history will be required.
  2. Each applicant will be required to qualify individually or as per specific criteria areas.
  3. Inaccurate, incomplete or falsified information will be grounds for denial of the application.
  4. Any applicant currently using illegal drugs will be denied. If approved for tenancy and later illegal drug use is confirmed, termination shall result.
  5. Any individual whose tenancy may constitute a direct threat to the health and safety of any individual, the premises, or the property of others, will be denied tenancy.

INCOME CRITERIA:

  1. Monthly income must be equal to three times stated rent*, and must be from a verifiable, legal source. If applicants monthly income is between two and three times the stated rent, applicant will be required to pay an additional security deposit equal to one month’s rent or provide acceptable co-signer’s. Income below two times the stated rent will result in denial.
  2. *If applicant will be using local, state or federal housing assistance as a source of income, “stated rent” as used in this section means that portion of the rent will be payable by applicant and excludes any portion of the rent that will be paid through the assistance program.
  3. Twelve months of verifiable employment will be required if used as a source of income. Less than 12 months verifiable employment will require an additional security deposit or acceptable co-signer.
  4. Applicants using self-employment income will have their records verified through the state corporation commission and will be required to submit records to verify their income, which records may include the previous year’s tax returns.
  5. Liquid Assets such as Savings accounts, Retirement Accounts, etc. must have a balance of 12 months of rental income in an account or a combination of accounts to qualify.

Five years of eviction-free history is required. Eviction actions that were dismissed or resulted in a judgment for the applicant will not be considered.

RENTAL and/or MORTGAGE CRITERIA:

  1. Twelve months of verifiable contractual rental history or mortgage history from a current unrelated, third party source, or home ownership is required. Less than twelve months verifiable rental history or mortgage history will require an additional security deposit and/or acceptable co-signer.
  2. Three or more notices for nonpayment of rent or mortgage payments within one year will result in denial of the application.
  3. Three or more dishonored checks within one year will result in denial of the application.
  4. Rental history including three or more noise disturbances or any other material non-compliance with the rental agreement or rules within the past two years will result in denial.

CREDIT CRITERIA:

  1. Negative or adverse debt showing on consumer credit report will require additional security deposits or acceptable co-signers. Ten or more unpaid collections (not related to medical expenses) will result in denial of the application.

RENT WELL GRADUATES:

If applicant fails to meet any criteria related to credit, evictions, and/or rental history, and applicant has received a certificate indicating satisfactory completion of a tenant training program such as “Rent Well,” Owner/Agent will consider whether the course content, instructor comments and any other information supplied by applicant is sufficient to demonstrate that applicant will successfully live in the complex in compliance with the Rental Agreement. Based on this information, Owner/Agent may waive strict compliance with the credit, eviction and/or rental history screening criteria for this applicant.

CRIMINAL CONVICTION CRITERIA:

Upon receipt of the rental application and screening fee, Owner/Agent will conduct a search of public records to determine whether applicant or any proposed resident or occupant has a “Conviction” (which means: charges pending as of the date of the application; a conviction; a guilty plea; or no contest plea), for any of the following crimes as provided in ORS 90.303 (3): drug-related crime; person crime; sex offense; crime involving financial fraud, including identity theft and forgery; or any other crime if the conduct for which applicant was convicted or is charged of a nature that would adversely affect property of the landlord or a tenant or the health, safety or right of peaceful enjoyment of the premises of residents, the landlord or the landlord’s agent. Owner/Agent will not consider a previous arrest that did not result in a Conviction or expunged records.

If applicant, or any proposed occupant, has a Conviction in their past which would disqualify them under these criminal conviction criteria, and desires to submit additional information to Owner/Agent along with the application so Owner/Agent can engage in an individualized assessment (described below) upon receipt of the results of the public records search and prior to a denial, applicant should do so. Otherwise, applicant may request the review process after denial as set forth below, however, see item (c) under “Criminal Conviction Review Process” below regarding holding the unit.

A single Conviction for any of the following, subject to the results of any review process, shall be grounds for denial of the Rental Application.

  1. Felonies involving murder, manslaughter, arson, rape, kidnapping, child sex crimes, manufacturing or distribution of a controlled substance.
  2. Felonies not listed above involving: drug-related crime; person crime; sex offense; crime involving financial fraud, including identity theft and forgery; or any other crime if the conduct for which applicant was convicted or is charged is of a nature that would adversely affect property of the landlord or a tenant or the health, safety, or right of peaceful enjoyment of the premises of the residents, the landlord or the landlord's agent, where the date of disposition has occurred in the last 7 years.
  3. Misdemeanors involving: drug related crimes, person crimes, sex offenses, domestic violence, violation of a restraining order, stalking, weapons, criminal impersonation, possession of burglary tools, financial fraud crimes, where the date of disposition has occurred in the last 5 years.
  4. Misdemeanors not listed above involving: theft, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, property crimes or any other crime if the conduct for which applicant was convicted or is charged is of a nature that would adversely affect property of the landlord or a tenant of their health, safety or right of peaceful enjoyment of the premises of the residents, the landlord or the landlord's agent, where the date of the disposition has occurred in the last 3 years.
  5. Conviction of any crime that requires lifetime registration as a sex offender will result in denial.

CRIMINAL CONVICTION REVIEW PROCESS

Owner/Agent will engage in an individualized assessment of the applicant’s, or other proposed occupant’s, Convictions if applicant has satisfied all other criteria (the denial was based solely on one or more Convictions) and:

  1. Applicant has submitted supporting documentation prior to the public records search; or
  2. Applicant is denied based on failure to satisfy these criminal criteria and has submitted a written request along with supporting documentation. Supporting Documentation may include:
    1. Letter from parole or probation office;
    2. Letter from caseworker, therapist, counselor, etc.;
    3. Certifications of treatments/rehab programs;
    4. Letter from employer, teacher, etc.
    5. Certification of trainings completed;
    6. Proof of employment; and
    7. Statement of the applicant

Owner/Agent will:

  1. Consider relevant individualized evidence of mitigating factors, which may include: the facts or circumstances surrounding the criminal conduct; the age of the convicted person at the time of the conduct; time since the criminal conduct; time since release from incarceration or completion of parole; evidence that the individual has maintained a good tenant history before and/or after the conviction or conduct; and evidence of rehabilitation efforts. Owner/Agent may request additional information and may consider whether there have been multiple Convictions as part of this process.
  2. Notify applicant of the results of Owner/Agent’s review within a reasonable time after receipt of all required information.
  3. Hold the unit for which the application was received for a reasonable time under all circumstances to complete the review unless prior to receipt of applicant’s written request (if made after denial) the unit was committed to another applicant.

Move-In Process +

Before moving in to your new home we will inspect the property to verify Move–In condition. A “Move–In” checklist is completed to document the condition of the property. Digital pictures will be taken upon Owner’s Request to verify the condition of the property at the time of Move–In. The same process will occur upon “Move–Out”, the results will dictate the amount of Security Deposit that is retained for cleaning or damage caused that is considered beyond “Normal Wear and Tear”.
