STATEMENT OF RENTAL POLICY
 
Easlan Management Company supports The Fair Housing Act as amended, prohibiting discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap, or familial status. The following qualification standards will be required from every prospective resident.
 
Rental Application: To be completed by every applicant and occupant eighteen years of age and over who will be occupying the apartments without falsifications. Valid, Current State or U.S. Government issued picture identification is required. This includes a valid state issued Driver’s License or identification card, valid Military ID card or a valid Passport. Management reserves the right to discontinue the verification process of an application once negative and/or derogatory information is found.
 
In order to help us complete your application in a timely manner, we ask that you fill out the application as completely as possible. There should be no lines left blank. If a line does not apply, please fill it in with N/A. If you need to call us back with more information, please do so within your 72-hour grace period. Be sure to sign the application and date it where indicated. The lease does not become effective until Management approves the application.
 
AVAILABILITY:
Applications for the apartment homes are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Apartments are considered available when they are vacant, without a good faith deposit, or occupied with a notice tendered. There are times when an apartment may become available suddenly, providing a floor plan that was previously not obtainable. This usually happens when an application being reviewed for approval is declined or when applicants cancel their reservation. Occasionally a resident will cancel or alter their notice. Should an applicant have a good faith deposit on an apartment that is no longer available, the management team will make every effort to accommodate the applicant by reserving another apartment of the same type. If the applicant considers the alternate apartment unacceptable, or there are not other available apartments of the same type, the applicant’s good faith deposit will cheerfully be refunded. Rental rates and/or promotional discounts are subject to change without notice.
 
QUALIFYING CRITERIA:
An application will automatically be denied should there be any unfavorable resident history. Previous landlords will be contacted to determine whether rent was paid as agreed, the condition of the previous residence at move-out, were there any formal resident complaints lodged against the applicants, and would the landlord rent to the applicant in the future. Lack of resident history will not necessarily result in an application denial if other qualifying criteria is met or exceeded.
 
In order to meet the established income standards, applicants must make two and half (2.5) times the monthly rental amount. Roommates must each qualify at 65% of the total monthly income requirements of a single applicant. Applicants must submit the most current pay stub to verify income. Additionally, employers will be contacted for references. Allowances made for income from sources other than employment must be verified in writing. In order to qualify without verifiable employment, an applicant must have proof of liquid assets equaling two and half (2.5) times the monthly income, multiplied by the number of months on the lease.
 
Unsatisfactory credit may disqualify an applicant. Unpaid collections, slow credit, judgments, liens, repossessions and bankruptcy reported to credit agencies are reviewed prior to acceptance.   Management evaluates each person applying to live at its community with a credit-risk scoring system that is provided by an independent consumer reporting agency and consistently applied to all of applicants.  Management reserves the right to require additional deposits, monies and prepaid rent in cases of marginal credit histories.
 
Please be advised, Management may not discuss the content of a credit report. Should unsatisfactory credit interfere with application acceptance, you will need to contact the reporting agency for further information. Should an application be denied, the good faith deposit of    $              will be refunded.
 
CRIMINAL HISTORY:
An application may be denied based on information obtained through a criminal background check. Applicant acknowledges and gives permission to Management to run a criminal background check.
 
A person with a known felony conviction will not be accepted. Person(s) must exhibit no arrest, charge, or conviction involving crimes of violence, firearms, illegal drugs, theft, crime involving the theft or destruction of property, or any crime involving a minor. Person(s) who have been arrested for, charged with, or received a deferred adjudication for a felony involving these crimes will not be accepted. Person(s) convicted of a misdemeanor or who have been arrested for, charged, with, or received deferred adjudication with respect to an offense that is sexual in nature, involves a minor, crimes of violence, stalking, public lewdness, and indecent exposure or involves weapons will not be considered.
 
CANCELLATION:
Upon placing the application, applicants have 72 hours to cancel their apartment reservation and have their good faith deposit of $     refunded. Failure to cancel a reservation in the prescribed period of time will result in the deposit being forfeited.
 
CO-SIGNERS:
A co-signer may be considered for the applicants that have not established sufficient rental, credit, or employment history. Applicants with poor credit are not eligible for assistance from a co-signer. Applicants with detrimental rental history are automatically declined. A co-signer must qualify at five (5) times the monthly rental amount; have an established credit history and superior residential history. The credit history of a co-signer must show a record of timely payments and be without blemish.
 
Please be advised, Management may not discuss the content of a credit report. Should unsatisfactory credit interfere with application acceptance, you will need to contact the reporting agency for further information.
 
ADDITIONAL DEPOSITS:
Applicants with marginal credit history may be considered with an additional deposit equal to one month’s or more rent. In order to qualify for an apartment with an extra deposit, there must be no background of formal complaints registered against the applicant at the former addresses, or outstanding apartment / rental collections. 
 
APPLICATION FEES:
Each applicant including co-signers shall pay a non-refundable application fee in the amount of $50.00 per applicant and $75.00 per joint applicants. Application payments are due in the form of a personal check, cashier’s check, money order, or electronic payment. 
 
NON-REFUNDABLE ADMINISTRATIVE FEE:
A non-refundable administrative fee in the amount of $150.00 shall be paid at the time of move-in.
 
RENTAL PAYMENTS:
Rental payments are due in the form of a personal check, cashier’s check, money order, or electronic payment. Rental payments are due on or before the first day of every month. Rental payments received after the fifth day of the month will incur a late fee. Personal checks returned by the bank will incur a return check fee and a late fee.  Management reserves the right to file Dispossessory Warrants for any late payments or returned checks that are not redeemed in a timely manner. If a Dispossessory Warrant is filed this will add an additional fee to the account. No partial rental payments are accepted.
