Future Resident Checklist
The following items will give you a better understanding of the steps necessary to rent a home through Aspect Properties.
Application Process: We will attempt to have an answer to your application as quickly as possible.
You can help make this process smoother by having all the necessary paperwork to submit with your application.
Two most recent paystubs or most recent tax returns are very important in our decision making process and if we don't have them, they can slow down your approval.
Please make sure to read the items on this page for further information.
Viewing the Home: You can view a home during any open scheduled open showing. Please call our office to find out when the home you are interested in is next having its open showing. To schedule a specific appointment, please call our office to set up a time. Some home owners require that we receive a filled out application before we can show their homes. They may also require a 24 hour notice. We will do our best to accommodate schedules for all involved.
Income: Aspect Properties requires a minimum income of 3 times the rental rate of the home you are applying for. All income must be provable. Please remember to include any ancillary sources of income, including, but not limited to; child support, alimony, disability income, assistance income, workers compensation, investment income, etc. Please be sure to include proof of income with your application (example: 2 most recent paystubs).
Application Fee: There is a one time non-refundable application fee of $60 per applicant. This is payable by cash, check, money order, debit card, or major credit card.
Credit: Bad credit alone may not cause your application to be denied. Credit is only one of the factors we use to determine someone’s acceptance. If you are uncertain of your credit, the credit bureaus must give you a free copy of them once a year. You can find that resource here.
Pets: Each property owner has a different feeling when it comes to pets. Typically JMZ Management will require a non-refundable pet fee in the amount of $350 per pet. We do our best to make sure to mention any restrictions for a particular house on its personal website. Feel free to ask us if you are not sure. JMZ Management does, however, require any dog owners to carry renter’s insurance that covers their specific pet. If your insurance carrier will not insure you because of your dog’s history or breed, then we will not waive or amend this policy.
Prior Rental History: If applicable, we will be contacting your current landlord and any prior landlords we can establish. We will also be checking any court records as they pertain to landlord/tenant issues. This is the most important part of your application, so please provide as much information as possible.
Number of Residents: As a normal guideline, Aspect Properties uses a “two occupants per bedroom” guideline. Some of our property owner’s have their own occupancy restrictions, and as long as they conform to fair housing guidelines, those restrictions overrule our general guideline. Please note: Some units, such as homes located in retirement communities, may have age restrictions and/or other limits in regards to occupancy.
Application Timeframe: The application process generally takes between 2 and 4 business days to complete. To avoid unnecessary delays, please make sure to fill out all paperwork as accurately and completely as possible.
Acceptance: Before we take a house off the market, the following conditions must be met:
1) Applicant has completed and signed an application with accurate information and has paid the $60 application fee (this fee can be taken over the phone via credit card).
2) Applicant has furnished proof of income and a copy of their state identification.
3) Applicant has paid a holding deposit, equal to at least one month’s rent, sometimes more may be required. It is solely up to the discretion of JMZ Management.
