Each adult occupant must complete and sign a separate application. An application cannot be processed unless it is fully complete. Applicants must list all members who will reside in the apartment.

All applicants shall disclose in their application if any household member(s) have criminal charges pending at the time of application and if so, where and what the pending criminal charges are. A history of any of the following by any household member is cause for rejection of an application for housing:
Rental History. Rental history for the past 2 years must indicate the ability to care for the property without damage and pay rent on time. Applicant must be able to establish the necessary utilities with the appropriate utility provider. Previous evictions and/or judgments for rent are grounds for denial of the application.
