I am going to be a Guarantor for one of the applicants; will I have to pay the $43.50 fee as well?

Yes, they run a screening on every applicant, both guarantors and occupants. These are separate screenings for each person.

Yes, if they are 18 years of age or older. This allows us to run the screening required for approval on their lease.

I’m an international traveler, expat, or foreign student. Can I still be approved?

Yes, prospective renters with no US credit score are eligible for lease coverage.  If you are an international student, you'll most likely need a Responsible Party to apply.

This individual does not need to be in the US, and their income and liquid assets do not need to be in US dollars.

What are the minimum Guarantor requirements that would typically be accepted?

If you have a FICO score, the minimum score is 630, and if employed, the minimum total annual income accepted is 3 times the monthly rent. Your income can also include liquid assets. Please contact your leasing agent for more details.

Will my daughter/son and I get a separate lease from the others in our group?

No, there is one lease for each home. All applicants will sign the same lease and have joint and several liability. they treat student leases the same as they do any lease.
