Tenants’ Frequently Asked Questions

Tenant FAQs

What are the income and credit requirements to rent a home?
We look for income that is at least three times the monthly rent, and our minimum credit score is 680. If you don’t meet those standards but your application otherwise qualifies, a co-signor may be considered.
Do you accept pets?
Whether or not pets are allowed depends on the property you want to rent and the type of pet you own. Our advertisements usually reflect whether pets are welcomed. If so, we’ll need a photo of your pet and your security deposit will increase by $500 per pet.
How and when do I pay rent?
Your lease agreement will include all of the information you need about rent payments, including penalties for late payments. The easiest way to pay is online, where you can pay one-time or set up recurring payments every month. It’s a safe and secure way to ensure your rent is paid on time every month.
What if something breaks?
Maintenance and repair requests can be made online, through your tenant portal. We will respond as soon as possible, and we ask you to make sure your property is available for the fastest possible visit from a vendor or contractor. For emergency maintenance issues, we are available by phone 24 hours a day.
How do I get my security deposit back?
Your lease agreement will provide instructions for the move-out process. We will return a full security deposit to tenants who clean and maintain their homes and return the property to us in the same condition in which it was received.

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!

“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.”

The power blew out in half of my house. I couldn't get the circuit breaker switch that had flipped off to work, it seemed broken. The electrician came, and was able to reengage the switch, as he didn't have the part on his truck to replace it. So, with his expertise, the job just took a moment and he was on his way. Luckily, he was able to lock that switch back into place. I'm glad it didn't turn out to be a huge repair.

Experience as far as getting someone out here for the work was amazingly quick and the men were very well nice and respectful and very truthful, however wasn’t too faund of the window work considering nothing will be done about the mold and the old windows itself, my newborn is now sick because we basically freeze all day bc pge bill is 500+$ we constantly have to run it just to try to stay warm which now realize it’s pointless bc no heat is able to stay in! So over all I’m really disappointed

Working with the group at Stowers Real Estate and Management was a pleasure. The entire team was very knowledgeable and helpful. Moving and everything that goes with it is a very stressful life experience. Thank you to Jody and his team for making this component of my move easier. Based on my excellent experience I have recommended the Stowers team to property owners as well as prospective tenants. I would strongly recommend this team to anyone that is looking for property or looking to rent or sell their existing properties. This is a top notch group.
