Criteria for All Applicants

The following are the standards by which we will judge your application for tenancy. You must meet the following standards to qualify for a rental in any single family home or apartment managed by Wolfnest property management. Applicants are judged on the same standards, one person or family at a time, on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • $39 NON-REFUNDABLE APPLICATION FEEEvery occupant over the age of 18 must fill out an application. Each applicant/co-signer/tenant is required to pay an application fee, which will be non-refundable. Cosigners for applicants are subject to the same criteria as the renter.

  • IDENTIFICATIONAll applicants must provide current and valid photo identification at the time of application.

  • EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENTSEmployment will be verified. At a minimum, employment history should reflect six months with current employer and/or six months with previous employer. Recent graduates must provide proof of enrollment or graduation. Self-employed applicants must provide a current CPA-prepared financial statement, personal bank statements and most recent years tax return.

  • INCOME REQUIREMENTSA verifiable source of income (employment/retirement/social security/disability/etc.) is required. The combined gross income of all persons living in the rental must be three times the monthly rental rate. Applicants that do not meet the above employment or income requirements must provide a cosigner and/or savings account statements showing a minimum balance equal to 24 months rental payments.

  • RENTAL HISTORYApplicants must provide name, address and dates of tenancy for previous landlords for two years for verification of rental history. An application will not be approved if there are any previous evictions, defaults in lease agreements, untimely rental payments, or outstanding balances owed to another landlord.

  • CREDIT HISTORYWe will request a comprehensive credit report from a credit reporting agency. Credit reports must reflect that all accounts are current. Application for tenancy will be denied if you have filed bankruptcy within the past 18 months. Any bankruptcy must have been discharged at least one year from the date of application. All collections accounts must show as being paid in full.

  • CRIMINAL HISTORYApplicants will be asked to disclose any prior arrests, convictions or pending criminal actions. A criminal background check will be conducted. Failure to disclose is grounds for denial. Arrests and pending criminal actions will not, in themselves, be grounds for denial but may be factors used along with other criteria. An application could be rejected if any applicants have been convicted of a type of crime that would be considered a serious threat to the rental property, other residents or neighbors. Management will consider the nature of the crime and the severity of the crime, along with how much time has passed since the criminal activity and the release from any imprisonment, parole, or probation. Persons who are listed on any sex offender list will not be considered.

  • MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY2 persons/1 bedroom; 4 persons/2 bedroom.
