PLEASE BRING A PICTURE ID WHEN TURNING IN AN APPLICATION.
Each applicant 18 years of age and older must complete a separate application and pay the non-refundable application fee of $25. Upon receipt of the signed application and application fee, we will begin processing the application for approval. All information on the application is subject to verification.
- We will verify employment and income, as well as current and previous residency with your mortgage lender or landlord.
- A credit report will be processed for all applicants.
- A copy of the applicant's driver's license or other federal issued ID is required and will become part of the completed application.
- Additional applications will continue to be accepted until the approved applicant has paid the security deposit.
As a representative of the property owner, we must act in their best interests and will choose the best application if more than one has applied.
Processing will normally be completed within 24 hours, however it can take longer if a complication arises such as difficulties contacting your past landlords. Applications will be denied if falsified. Once approved, each applicant must sign the lease and be fully responsible for the lease, rent or any fees due.
Applicant(s) must be a minimum of 18 years of age. Positive identification with a picture will be required at the time application is submitted. A complete and accurate application listing a current and at least one previous rental reference with phone numbers will be required.
Gross monthly household income must equal three (3) times the stated monthly rent. Current paycheck stubs are required. Some form of verifiable income will be required for unemployed applicants. (Verifiable income may mean, but is not limited to: Bank accounts, alimony/child support, trust accounts, social security, unemployment benefits, welfare, grants/loans.) Self-employed applicants will be required to show proof of income through copies of the previous year’s tax return. Students with no verifiable means of income may be accepted with a qualified guarantor.
Applicant must have good rental references for 6-months or more within the last 18- months unless applicant has just sold their home. Relatives are not acceptable as rental references. Application may be denied for evictions, damages beyond normal wear and tear, illegal activity on premises, refusal to re-rent by previous landlord or a balance still owed to previous landlord.
All information showing on the credit report is subject to verification, including previous address and place of employment. Some items that are looked at are: late payments, tax liens, charge-offs, repossessions, judgments and discharged bankruptcies. We will work with applicants who have poor credit caused by medical issues or a foreclosure or short sale of their home. If approved, applicants with credit scores under 600 may require a guarantor. A qualified guarantor must have a credit score of no less than 600.
Applicant must see the unit before lease. No leases will be signed on a “site-unseen” basis. To schedule an appointment contact us. We will try to work around your schedule. Sorry, for the safety of our staff, no showings will be made after dark.
The security deposit amount varies from property to property and must be paid in advance and must be paid by certified funds (money order or cashier's check). No payment arrangements can be made. Security deposit shall be forfeited if lessee does not proceed to lease the property as agreed to herein unless otherwise agreed upon by the lessor or lessee. Security deposit shall be returned to the applicant if owner fails to deliver possession of the real estate.
No pets unless otherwise noted. Rental homes that allow pets will require an additional deposit, usually $250 per pet. Cats should be spayed or neutered and declawed. We prefer no puppies and no kittens.
Once you are approved, you will be notified by phone and we will schedule a lease-signing appointment. All adults must sign the rental agreement and any accompanying documentation.
Sierra Property Services chooses rents based on current market conditions and instructions from the property owner.
Six month or one year leases are required for most properties. Please ask further regarding the terms of the lease for any property you are interested in renting.
