Brightline Property Management provides a streamlined proper vetting of all applicants to ensure quality tenant occupancy, designed to protect your bottom line.
Criminal History: Any applicants who have been convicted of the following crimes, regardless of when they happened, will automatically be disqualified: Felony offenses, drugs or drug related charges, sex offenses, prostitution, violent crimes, robbery/burglary, serious misdemeanors, stalking or harassment.
Rental History: All applicants must have a minimum of two years good rental history, immediately prior, in order to qualify. Renting from a relative or staying with a friend will not be considered for rental history. A mortgage may be considered for rental history, provided the account is closed and in good standing.
Income & Employment: The minimum net income requirement for a single person living in the home is 3 times the rental amount. Each additional tenant/occupant/child requires another .5x the rental amount. Acceptable proofs of income include pay stubs and tax returns. Applicants who are self-employed will need to provide their most recent 2 year’s tax returns. Applicants with less than 12 months employment at their current job will not be approved. Persons transferring to a new town to work with the same company will be permitted, provided they have been with the same employer for a minimum of 12 months.
Credit History: Landlord will obtain a Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) report, commonly referred to as a credit report, in order to verify your credit history. The following is a list of some categories which are evaluated: Ratio of good accounts to bad accounts, debts to previous landlords, eviction filings, and/or charged off accounts. Foreclosure is NOT a mandatory disqualification but could affect your application decision.
