Rental and Occupancy Criteria Guidelines

This community uses a statistically sound credit scoring system to evaluate your consumer credit report. Credit scoring is based on real data and statistics so all applicants are treated objectively. Your credit report contains information about you and your credit experiences including your bill-paying history, the number and types of accounts your have, late payments, collections actions, outstanding debt, rental history and the age of your accounts. Using a statistical program, your information is compared to the credit performance of other applicants with similar profiles which allows us to predict how likely it is that you will pay your rent on time. Credit service provider also checks related data sources which include the FBI and U.S. Treasury lists of individuals wanted for direct involvement or support of terrorist activities. Based on your credit score and related data source information, your application will be either accepted, receive a low acceptance, conditional acceptance or be declined. If your application is denied or accepted with conditions, your will be given the name, address and telephone number of the consumer reporting agencies, which provided your consumer information to us.
