This is not applicable to the addition of adult occupants, without first obtaining management approval, is considered a violation of the lease.
The approval of credit is based on the rental scores. Rental scores are relied upon to estimate the relative financial risk of leasing a dwelling to you. Scores are calculated using weighted average of factors and your rental score results from a mathematical analysis of information found in your credit report and application. Such information may include your bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts you have, open bankruptcies, unpaid utility bills, collection actions, charge-off, repossession, eviction histories, outstanding debt, income relationships, (rent-to-income and debt-to-income ratios), and other attributes that reflect on your qualifications to meet the terms of your lease. Because your rental score is based upon real data statistics, it is more reliable than subjective methods of evaluating your information. Rental scoring treats all applicants consistently and impartially.
Rental Score Recommendations
Approve- This is the most desirable recommendation and has the lowest security deposit level.
Approve with Conditions- Although the application may be accepted on this recommendation, this score presents a higher risk and may require the highest security deposit or co-signer.
Decline- J*A*B Property Management, Inc. will not proceed with the application
