Statement of Rental Policy

Thank you for choosing Authority Property Management. In order to establish residency in one of our rentals, we require that each applicant meet certain criteria. Before you apply, please take a moment to review our rental policy.

Applications: A non-refundable application fee in the amount of $40.00 is charged for verification of information on each application. Application fees must be submitted to be considered for occupancy.

Age: Applicant must be of legal age, 18 years or older. All occupants 18 years or older must fill out a separate application.

Financial Responsibility: Combined monthly net income of applicant/applicants must be at least three times the monthly rent of the desired unit. We do accept co-signers for most properties but not all. Co-signers are held to a higher credit rating standard. Co-signers must have a minimum credit score of 750 to be considered and have a net income of 7 times the rental amount.

Credit History: Applicants are required to have a good credit history. Credit scores under 650 are considered poor as per the industry standard. History of late payments and collection accounts and a credit history showing bankruptcy, unpaid state or federal tax liens, foreclosure, vehicle repossession, utility or telephone collection, returned checks, can cause an applicant to not qualify for a lease of a rental property. If an Applicant has a landlord/tenant, civil judgment or eviction, they will not qualify for the lease of a rental property.

Criminal History: Criminal background checks are automatically conducted as part of our credit history requests. An applicant may be denied if there is a history of serious criminal activity.

Residential History: the Previous residency must be verifiable. A Verification form will be sent to the current or former landlord for a record of payment history and information regarding any damages or incidents while the applicant was living there.

Employment/Income: Employment history must be verifiable. If no employment history exists, the applicant must show means of financial support for one year. Current check stubs equaling one month of pay will be accepted as verification. If the applicant is self-employed, tax records dated within one year will be reviewed. Other sources that will be considered as income may include but are not limited to trust funds, social security or disability benefits, child support, and alimony.

Pets: An additional deposit will be required if you have pets. Deposits can range from $300.00 to $500.00 per animal and sometimes more. Also, there are some breeds of dogs that will not be approved as the owner’s insurance company will not allow them. Please review the following list: Stafford Shire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Presa Canarios, Chows, Doberman Pinsetters, Akita, Wolf-hybrids, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Great Danes, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies.
