Important Information When Applying for a Rental
As a company, we do business in accordance with the Federal and State fair housing laws. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, disability/handicap, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, medical condition, gender, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, source of income, any arbitrary basis, perception, association, citizenship status, immigration status, primary language spoken, or any other basis protected under federal, state and/or local laws.
Each applicant is screened for credit history, leasing history, source of income verification, and criminal history. We process applications using the information below and select the best qualified tenant. Application processing generally takes 1 business day. Please allow that much time for an update. A $40 screening fee per applicant will apply. (pay this fee online during the application process).
When you fill out an application, we’ll ask for the following:
- Completed Application- We must have a completed application for all adults who will be living at the property, and emancipated minors with written proof of legal emancipation. Please make sure to complete all fields as we only process fully completed applications. Incomplete applications will be denied.
- A valid, government-issued photo ID. The photo ID will be compared to the application at the time the application is submitted, and the ID will be returned to you once this comparison is complete. We will not retain a copy of a photo ID unless your application is approved, and you have signed a lease.
- Proof of income for all applicants- Applicants must make a combined minimum of 3 times the monthly rent in gross income, to be considered. Applicants must provide written proof of legal income, which is paid directly to the applicant or a representative of the applicant.
We appreciate the opportunity to work with you. Thank you for applying!
“Great service! Excellent! Rented a property with Jody and Crissi. Always very responsive when needed something. I would highly recommend them.”
“I’ve worked with Jody Stowers for several years now. Jody managed my rental for 2 years and he did a great job keeping me up to date on my property. I am currently using Jody to buy another property in the bay area. Jody is extremely professional, trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with.”
