In order to assist you with your decision on your new home, we are providing a list of guidelines used to qualify residents for tenancy in our community. Please note that this is our current rental criteria; nothing contained in these requirements shall guarantee that all residents and occupants currently residing at this community have met these requirements. There may be residents and/or occupants that are currently residing at this community that do not meet these requirements due to taking up residency prior to these requirements taking effect. Additionally, our ability to verify whether these requirements have been met is limited to the information we receive from various credit reporting services.
