TENANT CRITERIA, REQUIREMENTS, AND GROUNDS FOR DENIAL
Pursuant to Property Code Section 92.3515, these Tenant Selection Criteria are being provided to you. The following constitute grounds upon which Landlord will be basing the decision to lease the Property to you.
Based on the information you provide, Landlord may deny your application or may take other adverse actions against you (including, but not limited to, requiring a co-signer on the lease, requiring an additional deposit, or raising rent to a higher amount than for another applicant). If your application is denied or another adverse action is taken based upon information obtained from your credit report or credit score, you will be notified.
We are committed to equal housing and we fully comply with the Federal Fair Housing Act (FFHA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). We do not discriminate against persons because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws.
Approval is based on the following factors
●Identification- Each applicant is required to provide a copy of a legible government issued photo I.D.
●U.S. citizens and residents - Valid U.S. Government issued photo I.D. with an associated number that enables us to check your credit and criminal history.
●Non-U.S. citizens - Valid passport or government issued ID along with a visa that is valid for the length of your proposed lease agreement.
●If we are unable to obtain a credit history you will be considered the highest acceptable credit risk and all associated rules will apply.
●Income Verification - We will verify employment and pay rate with your current employer. We also require you to upload any supporting documents (i.e. - employer pay stubs, tax returns, and/or bank statements). Sufficient income to rent ratio. Rent should equal no more than 30% of the applicant’s gross monthly income. Roommates must have gross income greater than or equal to 5x the rent when combined.
○ Self-employed income may also be verified with a CPA-prepared financial statement or tax returns. We require 2 years tax returns if self-employed.
○Other income - Grants and scholarships are considered income. Student loans or any other type of loan is not considered income. For accounting purposes these are liabilities not income.
●Employment Verification and History - should reflect at least 6 months with your current employer in Austin area. Transfers or relocations must have correspondence showing an accepted job offer. Any verification fees required by the employer must be paid by applicant.
○ Military Members- Please provide a current copy of your LES. If you are active duty military, you must be on an assignment that, to the best of your knowledge, will allow you to complete an initial 12 month lease.
●Rental Verification and History- Applicants are responsible for providing information including the names, addresses and phone numbers, of Landlords with the dates of residence for the previous 3-5 years. History should not include evictions, foreclosures or bankruptcies in past 5 years, or judgements for landlords regarding rent or property damage. Your failure to provide the requested information, provision of inaccurate information, or information learned upon contacting previous landlords may influence the decision to lease the property to you. Home ownership will be verified from a current credit report. Broken leases will be considered on a case-by-case basis and an additional security deposit may be required.
●Credit History -Landlord will obtain a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) report, commonly referred to as a credit report, in order to verify your credit history. Credit history should show that the resident has paid bills on time and does not have a history of debt “write-offs” or accounts that have gone into collection. Money owed to a previous landlord or utility company is cause for denial. Residency may also be denied due to poor credit history. We do not accept co-signers.
