Tenant Selection Criteria

Fair Housing Statement:  Bluewater Property Management LLC conducts all business in accordance with Federal Fair Housing Law, as well as local and state laws.  We are a fair housing provider. We do not discriminate against persons on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or handicap/disability.

Tenant Application Screening Process:  There is a non-refundable application fee per adult (over 18 years old) and older to be paid when an application is submitted.  This fee is non-refundable unless we do not process your application.  We will accept the first qualified applicant.  Our preference is to only take one application screening fee at a time; however, when applicable or at an applicant’s request, we will take a second application screening fee and refund it if the application is not processed.  If the application being processed does not qualify, we will then call the next interested party and process their application upon their paying the application fee.

Please review our list of criteria. If you feel you meet the criteria, please apply – because we would be happy to rent to you.  If you have any questions, please ask.

Application Fees:  There is a $55.00 non-refundable application fee per adult (over 18 years old) living in the home.

Application Requirements: Your application must be filled out completely and accurately. An incomplete application may be rejected. Any misstatements or omissions made on your application may be grounds for denial or termination of the lease.  If the information given on the application cannot be verified, this is a reason for denial. All information must be legible and verifiable.

Identification and Application Process: Every Person 18 and over that will reside in the property must fill out an application and provide a government-issued photo ID.

Rental History:  Applicants must have a positive rental history. The refusal of a prior landlord to give a reference or a negative reference may be grounds for denial. Unlawful detainers or evictions may be a basis for denial if less than 5 years old. A foreclosure or short sale of a home is not an automatic denial.

Credit:  A positive credit history is required. High debt, past debt, outstanding debt, third party collections and judgments may be a reason for denial.  The required credit score is 600 or higher.

Criminal History:  Application will not be approved if the applicant has a felonious criminal history.

Income/Employment History:  You must be able to show income that is 3 times the monthly amount of rent in Gross Monthly income to qualify.  To be counted as household income, amounts must be verifiable. Unemployment will not qualify.  You may be required to provide your last 2 month’s check stubs, bank statements or last year’s tax returns.

Occupancy:  The maximum number of residents equals two persons per bedroom.

Smoking Policy:  There is no smoking allowed inside any properties. Some properties may have a designated outside area.

Alternative Criteria:  If you do not meet all of the above criteria, your application may be reconsidered with other options such as additional security deposit.
