Application Criteria

Application criteria for being considered to rent an SG-managed property

Applicants, along with guarantors or co-signers, if any, are required to each complete their own applications. Applications require submission of personal information and history that pertains to or is necessary to acquire, rental history, credit checks, background checks, and other relevant information.
Applicants for a unit should each have credit (FICO) scores not less than 650 and combined pre-tax monthly income equal or greater than three times the monthly rent amount. However, meeting some or all of this criteria alone does not guarantee an applicant(s) the unit.
Applicants must also submit to a background check, which screens for prior evictions and some criminal history. Applicants should not have prior evictions or criminal history that may reasonably be determined to pertain to safety of all tenants’ at rental property.
Meeting some or all of this criteria alone does not guarantee an applicant(s) the unit. We typically have multiple applications for units, more than one of which may meet all above stated criteria. Therefore, it is not possible to guarantee that meeting the criteria will guarantee that an applicant is given the unit/home.

In accordance with the federal Fair Housing Act and other applicable laws and statutes, we have a responsibility and obligation under law to never discriminate in the rental of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Furthermore, we will not establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental of housing, deny that housing is available, or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national original.
