We encourage you to complete your application promptly and send all additional documents to (email@example.com). Applications are processed on a first completed basis. Completing an application does not guarantee approval.**

APPLICATION APPROVAL CRITERIA
We take a holistic approach to managing properties rather than using hard fast rules and discounting people who would be great tenants. We require a background search, a copy of your driver’s license or government issued ID, and proof of income (at least 2 of your most recent pay stubs).
Income: We look for income to be three times the rent, but if there are additional sources of income, and we can verify it, we will use it.
Credit Report: A credit report is conducted on all applicants with results factored into the final decision to approve or deny an applicant.
Rental History: Rental history should reflect no outstanding debt to any landlord or management company. Acceptable Rental Payment History (no more than 3 late payments for any 12-month period in the last 3 years)
Criminal Report: A criminal background check is conducted on all applicants and occupant age 18 years or older.
Eviction Report: An eviction check is conducted on all applicants.
**An application may be denied for any reason, regardless of credit or income. After approving a tenant, you will have to send proof of utilities and renter’s insurance before occupancy.
CO-SIGNERS: Co-signers are accepted for applicants who have no previous rental history or who do not meet the required income criteria outlined above.
- Co-signers are screened as an “applicant” and must meet all screening criteria.
- Co-signers are required to sign the rental agreement.
- Co-signers may be relatives or an employer.
In the event that an applicant has no/low credit, does not meet the income criteria, and/or where a co-signer cannot be obtained, White Property Management reserves the right to require a higher Security Deposit. In this case, the higher Security Deposit would not exceed an amount equal to two (2) times the monthly rental amount. Acceptance of higher Security Deposit would require individual owner approval.
PET POLICY: Acceptance of a pet requires individual property owner approval.
- Pet Fee of $350.00 per pet (Non Refundable)
- Recent Picture of the Pet.
PROPERTY DAMAGE LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERAGE: Property damage liability insurance coverage, including a minimum of $300,000 of liability coverage for perils of fire, smoke, explosion, water discharge, and sewer backup is a requirement of the lease.
