Here are some common questions that may help you
Do you need good credit to be in your program?
We do not expect perfect credit. The better your credit the easier it will be to get you approved. If you have some credit issues, that is OK. We are mostly looking for ability to pay and a stable rental history.
I had a bad experience with a landlord and am concerned about getting qualified. Can you still work with me?
If you have had some spotty rental history, please contact us and discuss your specific situation with us before you apply. We are always happy to discuss your situation to make sure which program is right for you.
I have a past criminal charge. Would I be accepted?
We do pull a criminal report. Violent crimes, prostitution, felony drug related charges and other serious offensives will not be approved. While we understand that time and maturity can make a difference, charges over 5 years will still be evaluated and used in conjunction with the balance of your application. If you have a specific question about your situation, we encourage you to contact us BEFORE you apply.
Ready to apply?
We will not be able to process your application until we have your application fee.
