Tenant Selection Criteria

How we place tenants

Pursuant to Property Code Section 92.3515, these Tenant Selection Criteria are being provided to you. The following constitute grounds upon which Landlord will be basing the decision to lease the Property to you. If your application is denied based upon information obtained from your credit report, you will be notified.



  1. Criminal History: Landlord will perform a criminal history check on you to verify the information provided by you on the Lease Application. Felonies or any type of assault or violence charges (misdemeanor or felony) are grounds for automatic denial. Other criminal records may influence the Landlord’s decision to lease the Property to you.
  2. Previous Rental History: Landlord will verify your previous rental history using the information provided by you on the Lease Application. Your failure to provide the requested information, provision of inaccurate information, or information learned upon contacting previous landlords may influence Landlord’s decision to lease the Property to you. Evictions or foreclosures in the past 3 years around grounds for automatic denial. Applicants with older evictions will only be considered if the debt to the past landlord has been paid in full.
  3. Current Income: Landlord may ask you to verify your income as stated on your Lease Application. Depending upon the rental amount being asked for the Property, the sufficiency of your income along with the ability to verify the stated income may influence Landlord’s decision to lease the Property to you. A minimum of three times the rent amount in gross (pre-tax) monthly income is required. Selfemployed applicants will need to provide the last year’s tax return. Non-employment income, such as child support, social security, or disability will need to be documented by an award letter. Roommates: Income from ONLY the 2 highest earners will be considered towards the 3x rental income requirement.
  4. Credit History: Landlord will obtain a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) report, commonly referred to as a credit report, in order to verify your credit history. Landlord’s decision to lease the Property to you may be based upon information obtained from this report. If your application is denied based upon information obtained from your credit report, you will be notified. There is not a ‘hard line’ credit score required for approval – more weighting is given to recent history (last 2 years) and housing/automobile payment history than student loans or medical bills.
  5. Failure to Provide Accurate Information in Application: Your failure to provide accurate information in your application or your provision of information that is unverifiable will be considered by Landlord when making the decision to lease the Property to you. If Applicant(s) are deficient in one of the 5 areas above, approval MAY be granted with a larger security deposit or a lease guarantor (except for automatic denial criteria as specified above). Applicants with deficiencies in 2 or more areas usually cannot be approved.
