Tenant Qualifications

Please ensure before making an application the following apply to you and that you are aware of:
Applicants MUST be adults over the age of 18. All adults in the household must complete our electronic tenant application, individually.

If you decide to rent one of our listed properties, in addition to monthly rent, a security deposit equal to one month’s rent, any non-refundable pet deposit, and a $50.00 lease administration fee will be charged to tenants prior to tenancy.
In the event you enter into a lease agreement and change your mind prior to taking possession of the rental property, you shall forfeit all deposit funds as liquidated damages. In addition, you may be held responsible to the additional terms of the lease you signed.
If for any reason you are not approved for a rental property, the $35 application processing fee is non-refundable so please ensure you are able to qualify before you apply.
With an exception for minor children, current occupancy standards are a maximum of 2 persons per bedroom. However, some city and county municipalities and/or homeowners associations prohibit more than two (2) unrelated adults to reside in a single-family dwelling unit.
When individual tenant candidates make application and pay the application processing fee they are authorizing Turnkey Services to conduct a background investigation consisting of but not limited to the following areas: 

  • Review of your credit report and your credit score, 
  • Review of public records for past evictions, 
  • Verification of your current employment, 
  • Verification your previous landlord reference(s), 
  • Run and review a criminal background check, 
  • Review local county civil and criminal public records, 
  • Compare applicant names vs. entries in the sex offender databases.

If you cannot provide positive references, have a debt to income ratio that shows you cannot afford to pay rent from your documented income (pay stubs, bank records, or tax returns), have no work history or an unstable work history, been evicted in the past, have a criminal record, or any occupant is listed in the sex offender database, you may not qualify for a rental at this time.
All applicants should view the exterior & interior of the rental or have a trusted friend or relative(s) view the rental prior to occupancy because all rentals must be accepted “AS-IS” before the application process is complete. 

Resident Selection Criteria 

Below please review our minimum residential qualification criteria.

Minimum Credit Score – Applicants with combined gross income meeting the income requirements of the specific property they wish to rent must all also have a minimum credit score of 600. (No credit is considered a ZERO score). If your credit does not meet the minimum threshold, we may be unable to rent to you. In some cases, in select properties only, a waiver may be granted, and an additional (double) security deposit may be required.

Income – Applicants must have a combined documentable gross income of 3 times the monthly rental payment. Acceptable forms of documentation are your work pay stubs for the previous three months or your personal bank account statements for the previous three months. If proof of gross household income of 3 times the monthly rental payment cannot be provided, we may be unable to qualify you.
Applicants must all have at least 12 months verifiable rental history. Applicants can have no more than three (3) late payments, during the last 12-month period as reported by the previous landlord(s). Applicants must also be reported to have “taken good care of the property”.
Applicants must not have an outstanding balance with a previous landlord.
Applicants must not have a rental eviction on their record.
Applicants must not have a felony conviction within 7 years that are violent in nature against persons or property and drug related felonies. No sex offender records. 


We happily accept pets into many of our rental properties. Except for fish, one pet may be permitted with the following considerations:
Some rental units will not accept pets for any reason. If a pet is approved, a onetime non-refundable pet fee of ¼ 1 month rent will be charged, and the base rental rate may be charged additional rent per month 'pet rent'.
Mainly due to homeowner insurance restrictions we maintain a list of K9 breeds which are not acceptable under any circumstances even if they are under the 30 lb weight limit. Please speak to a property manager about your specific pet(s). We reserve the right to deny any pet at any time for any reason both prior to a lease and during a lease should the pet become a nuisance. At the sole discretion of our individual property managers, K9s are screened and K9s resembling in appearance the following K9 breeds will not be accepted under any circumstances: GERMAN SHEPHERDS, DOBERMANS, PIT BULLS, CHOWS, OR ROTTWEILLERS.

Please note: Prior to tenant approval, if you are bringing a pet, we ask all tenant candidates to register their pet with PetScreening.com using our referral link. Using our referral link will automatically share your pets profile with us. PetScreening.com is a simple and secure way to manage and share important information about your Pet or Assistance Animal. There is a nominal cost to register your pet with PetScreening.com unless you have a bona-fide assistance animal in your household. There is no charge ($0) for submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an Assistance Animal. Your request will be reviewed by the PetScreening.com legal review team per the guidelines. Please be aware of laws and local ordinances, if any, for criminal offenses and/or penalties for committing assistance animal fraud. 


100% of our rental units are smoke free. Smoking is never allowed inside our rental units. Smoking inside a rental unit is cause for immediate termination of a lease and tenants who have a lease terminated for smoking will forfeit all security deposits.


All Tenants are required to maintain property damage liability insurance on behalf of the Landlord and Property Manager. Coverage is required in the amount of Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000) for damage to both Landlord's and third parties’ property with the provisions covering at least the perils of fire, smoke, explosion, accidental water discharge and sewer backup. Tenants are required to name Turnkey Services as an additional insured.
