How do I go about making application?
Just go to the details page of the listing you are interested in and select “Make Application” from there. Be prepared to upload your photo id and last two paycheck stubs, showing year to date income, as well as anything else you would like to offer for us to consider in the processing of your application, like child support.
I already have a copy of my credit and criminal background, may I just supply you with those so I don’t have to pay an application fee?
Unfortunately, due to a number of reasons, we are unable to accept these documents.
I have a bankruptcy, will this hurt my chances of qualifying
Unfortunately, we are unable to consider applicants with open bankruptcies.
I’d like to speak to someone personally about my credit situation before making application and wasting the application fee unnecessarily. Is this possible?
Most Certainly! If you don’t see the specific thing you are concerned about in our “Qualifications” page , feel free to call and ask. However, we are not able to give you an approval or denial based on the verbal information you provide to us. In other words, you have to decide whether or not to spend the application fee as it is non-refundable.
There will be three of us applying, we room together now, but one of us has bad credit; can we just apply with the other two?
