RENTAL APPLICATION CRITERIA
The Central (“Management”) operates in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Act, as well as all state and local fair housing and civil rights laws. We do not discriminate against any person based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, sex, familial status, handicap, disability, veteran status, or any other basis protected by applicable state or local laws. The Rental Criteria below outlines some of the policies for this community with regard to standards that may be required by each applicant in order to be approved for residency.
All applicants must be of legal age. All parties 18 years of age or older are required to complete an application and pay any and all applicable fees. Applications are to be completed in full; applications containing untrue, incorrect, or misleading information will be denied. The application fee is non-refundable unless otherwise provided by state or local law. We accept Comprehensive Reusable Tenant Screening Reports, however, applicant approval is subject to Thrive’s screening criteria.
As part of your rental application process, On-Site will create a rental report that accesses up to two types of information about you: 1) credit/financial records; 2) personal references. Any negative, misleading, or unverifiable information may result in the denial of your application. In the event of a denial or other adverse action, you have a right to obtain a free copy of your rental report from On-Site, and to dispute the accuracy of any information appearing in it. You may contact On-Site Renter Relations by phone (877) 222-0384; or mail at 307 Orchard City Dr., Ste. 110, Campbell, CA 95008. For more information, visit www.renterrelations.com.
ALL applicants are REQUIRED to show at least one of any of the following forms of identification:
All applications are submitted to On-Site.com, a third-party rental applicant screening company. All applications are evaluated based on a rental scoring system. Rental scoring is based on real data and statistic statistical data such as payment history, quantity and type of accounts, outstanding debt, and age of accounts. Every applicant is treated objectively because each application is scored statistically in exactly the same manner.
The rental scoring system will compare your application to On-Site’s database, and by evaluating those statistics and real data in accordance with pre-established criteria set by Management, On-Site will recommend one of the following:
If On-Site recommends “Accepted with Conditions” or “Denial,” a guarantor or co-signer may be considered. In this instance, the original applicant’s application will be re-submitted along with the guarantor or co-signer’s application. Applications for guarantors and co-signers processed through On-Site are also scored, but are typically held to a more stringent, pre-established screening standard because guarantors and co-signers are technically responsible for the payments for this residence, as well as their own place of residence.
Written verification of income in an amount equal to 2.5 times the monthly rent per household will be required, along with any necessary supporting documents.
Management reserves the right to verify the applicant’s residence history.
The Central (“Management”) is prohibited from requiring disclosure, asking about, rejecting an applicant, or taking adverse action based on any arrest record, conviction record, or criminal history, except sex offender registry information. The applicant screening investigation includes a criminal background screening, limited to sex offender registry information only. All applicants will be screened for registry information. The Central (“Management”) considers the entire application and considers prior convictions reportable under the Fair Credit Reporting Act and rules of Washington, limited to those appearing on a local, state, or national registry only. Consideration will be given to the following factors relating to the conviction(s) that requires registry on a local, state, or national sex offender registry:
Applicants who have been a party to an eviction proceeding may not be approved for residency, depending upon the pre-established criteria set by Management.
If your application is denied due to unfavorable information received on your screening report you may:
HOW YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR RENTAL SCORE
Your rental score results from information found in your credit report, criminal history, references, and application data. Such information may include your history of paying bills and rent, the accounts you have, collections and delinquencies, income and debt.
Your rental score may change if the underlying information it is based upon changes. To improve your score, concentrate on paying your bills on time, paying down outstanding balances, and removing incorrect information. Your chances of approval may also improve if you apply for an apartment with lower monthly rent, or use a guarantor or co-signer if permitted by Management.
