Application process and screening

Summit South Properties, LLC is committed to equal housing and we do business in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Act (FFHA).

It is illegal to Discriminate Against Any Person Because of Race, Color, Religion, Sex, Handicap, Familial Status, National Origin or Age. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws. We offer application forms to everyone who requests one. Each occupant over the age of 19 must complete an application and pay the application fee.

Approval is based on these factors:
  • rental history
  • employment verification/history
  • income verification
  • criminal background check

It is our policy to thoroughly investigate all individuals applying for residency. Each individual applicant must meet requirements to be approved.

All applicants are processed through a professional credit bureau service. Our ability to process your application in a timely manner is dependent upon the thoroughness and accuracy of your responses. We will then inform you of the acceptance or refusal of your application. ALL QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CREDIT HISTORY SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO THE CREDIT BUREAU. DO NOT DISCUSS YOUR CREDIT HISTORY WITH THE OFFICE STAFF.

The application process will take a minimum of 48 hours and includes, but is not limited to, investigation of the following:

  1. RESIDENCE HISTORY: Verification of current and past residence include: length of residency, rental amount, payment history, the absence or presence of complaints, the condition of property upon vacating, the cost of damages incurred, and history of proper notice given regarding intent to move. A stable rental history is expected of all applicants. If you currently own your residence, your mortgage payment amount and payment history may be verified.
  2. EMPLOYMENT HISTORY: Verification of current employment includes length of employment and gross salary. Your most recent employment and current employment must be of reasonable length of time and should demonstrate stability in your employment history. Self-employed applicants must furnish their most recent tax return for review.
  3. CREDIT HISTORY & CRIMINAL RECORD: A full credit history and criminal record is prepared on each applicant and cosigner.

Once the application process has begun, the application fee is NONREFUNDABLE. Any potential problems should be discussed with the office personnel when you submit your application. Complete and accurate information will facilitate rapid processing of your application. Any false or omitted information on the application will be considered immediate grounds for rejection of the application. We reserve the right to reject an application for any reason other than race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, familial status, religion, national origin or age.
