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: Applicants, must be of legal age, 18 years and older. ALL occupants 18 years and older must fill out an application.

Financial Responsibility: Combined monthly NET income of applicant/applicants must be at least THREE times the monthly rent of the property you are interested in.

Credit History: Applicants are required to have a good credit history. Credit scores below 650 are considered poor as per the industry standard. With multiple applicants credit will be averaged out between everyone and must be 650 or higher to be considered. Credit history from the last five years will be considered. History of late payment and/or collection accounts and credit history showing a 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. We do not allow Co-signers.
