• Two Years of Good Rental History 

    No forcible Entry & Detainers (evictions) unless you have verifiable documentation of landlord irresponsibility. However an FE&D due to property damage by resident will not be accepted under any circumstance. 

    No history of any damage to the residence, or an outstanding balance due to a previous landlord. If you have no prior rental history, then you must have a qualified Co-Signor – the Co-Signer MUST be a resident of Texas, have good credit history and be willing to sign the lease. 

    When a Co-Signor signs the lease, they are responsible for the rent just as you are. In the event of nonpayment / late payment, it will be reported on their credit report as well, and if the eviction process goes to court, they may be named in the suit as well.

    Verifiable Gross Income 

    A Minimum of Three Times (3X) the Rent charged on the residence. Section 8 vouchers may / may not be accepted, depending on the individual owner. If section 8 is accepted, it will be noted in the listing. The resident must meet the same criteria as those seeking non-subsidized housing.

    If self employed, 2 years of signed income tax returns or 3 months of personal bank statements may be used to prove income.

    Criminal Background Check

    Residency may be denied due to criminal history. See Criminal Background Criteria below.

    Credit History
