Both tenant screening and tenant placement is important to ensure your property is taken care of. Once a prospect has expressed interest in the home to one of our agents, they will be able to easily apply on our website. Our leasing agents will do a verification of residency and employment, collect pay stubs, valid identification cards, and screening. Our agents work diligently to ensure people are truthful in the information they provide. Each application is reviewed by the property manager for approval to ensure you have the right resident.
HomeRiver Group® Sacramento Qualifying Criteria:
The most important objective in renting your home is finding a good resident. A good resident will report maintenance needed on the home, pay their rent on time each month, and take care of the property on a daily basis. We cannot guarantee an applicant will be a good resident, but our qualifying criteria will aid in finding the right renter for your home in many ways. We require that all prospective residents meet the following qualifying criteria when completing the rental application:
- Gross income must be at least 3 times the market rent of the property for which you are applying and must be fully verified. For most applicant situations, we verify income using paystubs and a written employment reference. For self-employed applicants, we require the last 60 days of bank statements and a prior year tax return showing required income amounts. Applicants receiving social security or other federal assistance must provide documentation thereof, including a statement of benefits and bank statements showing the income being received. Court-ordered spousal or child support may be considered with consistent payment history for the prior 12 months.
- Applicant must provide information for their current and immediately previous landlords and have a minimum of two years of verifiable rental history. Verifiable rental history for a period of at least 24 months, in which all the lease terms have been satisfactorily fulfilled, is required. Applicants with late or bounced payments, but an otherwise positive Landlord reference, may be approved with additional deposit.
- Applicant must physically reside in the property for which they are applying. Applicant must live in the rental unit and must disclose all persons that will be occupying the unit. All persons residing in the property are subject to background checks prior to occupancy. All persons 18 years of age or older must be a leaseholder and qualify for the unit with the applicant.
- Falsifying information on an application will be grounds for immediate rejection of the application.
