Rental Criteria

Rental Application and Application Fee

Please carefully review the following guidelines before submitting your application. 

To complete a rental application, you must be prepared to provide 3 years of residential history as well as contact information for your rental references. You will also be asked to provide documentation on your monthly income.  Please submit all requested documentation; missing information will delay the processing of your application.

Although we generally can successfully process applications within one to two business days, the most common reasons for delay are missing information on an application, lack of supporting documentation for income verification, and inability to verify housing references. 

Each resident over the age of 18 must submit a separate rental application.

1. All applications must be submitted online. A $52.00 application fee must be paid at the time of application.  You must submit a current, government-issued photo ID (i.e., passport, driver’s license) along with your completed application.

2. We do not rent sight unseen. For your protection, we require that you inspect the interior of the unit of your choice carefully to ensure amenities listed are actually present.
3. Allowable occupancy is 2 persons per bedroom plus 1 additional person per unit.
4. Co-signers (guarantors) may be considered for deficiencies in credit, income, and rental/mortgage history requirements only, must meet all financial areas of the guidelines, reside in California, and must have a minimum gross monthly income equal to four times the monthly rent.
5. All of our properties are “smoke-free”.

We will use personal information disclosed by you to conduct background checks. We may verify any information that you submit to us in connection with your application for a lease through any means, including any consumer or criminal record reporting agencies, personal and professional references, employers, and other rental housing owners. The following items may disqualify rental acceptance or be grounds for denial of an application:


Please note: PetScreening registration is a required part of the application process for ALL applicants.

To help ensure ALL of our residents understand our pet and animal-related policies, we use a third-party screening service and require EVERYONE to complete a profile. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and more accurate records to create greater mutual accountability. If you need accommodation in another way, please contact your housing provider.

If a property permits pets in the property, PetScreening charges a nominal fee for the creation of a Pet Profile for a household pet. This is a separate charge from the rental application fee. There is no ($0) charge for an assistance animal accommodation request and no ($0) charge for a No Pet Profile completed by tenants without pets/animals.  Please get started by selecting a profile category on our landing page:
