Listed below are general guidelines for an Alpine Property. Requirements may vary depending on the property.
A: To qualify for an Alpine property income is verified and your net (take-home) monthly income must be greater than three (3) times the monthly rent.
To rent a property that leases for $1,000 per month, for example, your income must at least total approximately $3,000 per month. We require documentation of legitimate income sources, such as pay stubs, social security documentation, child support, disability, alimony, etc. Bank statements are the only acceptable form of income documentation for self-employed individuals. We are unable to use unemployment income to qualify applicants for a rental property.
A good rental reference. Successful completion of a lease within the last 12 months.
We verify with your current lender or landlord that you are in good standing with good payment history. We can not use a family member for a rent reference. We like to see rent rates used for a reference close to the rent rate of the property you are applying for. If you rent from an apartment complex or property management company a good 12-month rent ledger is required.
No evictions or judgments from landlords or property managers in the past five (5-7) years.
If you have been evicted, or have any open judgments within the past 5-7 years, the probability of being approved is very low. Our tenancy screening pulls public records. Filings from landlords for any reason will have a strong negative impact.
No judgments or collections from utility companies.
No felony convictions within the last 5-7 years. All bankruptcies must be discharged.
A: An application must be completed before scheduling showings. We need to make sure we can obtain approval through one of our landlords before going to work for you. We work with a variety of landlords who offer many approval options.
