*Please Note: This list is not all-inclusive of criteria that is screened on an application, but rather the major areas that affect applicants. An application cannot be approved or not approved until it has been submitted and gone through our screening software.

Applications are processed in the order they are received with all required documents and information, however an application cannot be approved until all aspects of the screening policy have been completed and reviewed by the property manager. Housing is on a first-come, first-served basis, therefore we do not hold units until the application is approved and a deposit payment is made. When an application is approved or denied, we will contact you. Denied applicants will also receive an “Adverse Action Letter” via email/snail mail to the address listed on the application explaining why the application was denied.
