All non-dependent leaseholders or non-dependent occupants of legal age must fill out an application and are considered to be applicants. Each applicant must complete an application in its entirety and all information provided must be true, accurate and complete, as well as verifiable. Qualification is determined using a credit analysis model, income verification, and criminal background history. Resident history may be evaluated based upon the outcome of credit analysis. Each applicant’s credit and criminal status will be individually evaluated; leaseholders’ income will be combined for credit scoring.
