Co-signers must also be residents of California.

Please submit your two most recent pay stubs along with your application. We could require a qualified co-signer and/or security deposit of up to 2 months rent if you would otherwise qualify.

False information is grounds for denial. Your application will be declined if you misrepresent any information on your application.

Criminal convictions for certain types of crimes will result in denial of your application. You will be denied rental if in the last 10 years you have had a conviction for any type of crime that is considered a serious threat to real property or to other residents peaceful enjoyment of the premises. This includes but is not limited to the manufacture or distribution of controlled substances, domestic violence or robbery.

If in the past 10 years you have been through a court ordered eviction, or had any judgments against you for financial delinquency, your application may be denied. This restriction may be waived with supervisor’s approval if the circumstances can be justified, the incident has been resolved to the plaintiff’s satisfaction, and you provide a qualified co-signer on your rental agreement. An additional security deposit may apply.
