Resident Selection Criteria

Drucker & Falk is proud of its reputation for courteous service, its concerns for the needs of its clients and its adherence to all Federal, state and local laws including those which prohibit discrimination against any person based on race, sex, religion, color, familial status, national origin or handicap. 

Each individual age 18 or older who wishes to reside in the apartment will submit a separate Application for Residency and provide a valid social security number and driver’s license or government issued photo identification or passport. If an individual does not have a Social Security number, Form I-551 (green card), Form I-688, Form I-688A, or Form I-94 plus the corresponding passport and Visa may be used in place of a social security number. Inquiries will be made regarding an applicant’s credit history, employment history/source of funds, and public records information. This information will determine if the applicant will be accepted for an apartment at our community.

EMPLOYMENT/INCOME/FUNDS:  Gross monthly income/funds must meet the requirement of two and a half (2.5) times the amount of the monthly rent.  Employment/income/funds may be verified by one or more of the following: verified in writing by employer on our form; 3 consecutive paystubs covering a minimum 30-day period along with bank statements verifying deposit of those funds; Pension/benefit statements; Documentation of court-ordered alimony and/or child support; Letter of intent from employer (work start date no later than 30 days from lease effective date); W-2 or tax return for previous year; Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher. Bank statements covering a 6-month period may be used as additional proof of income; any other verifiable source of funds.  

CREDIT:  The applicant’s credit history will be obtained from a national credit reporting agency. Credit history should positively reflect the applicant’s timely payment of financial obligations. A lack of credit history may be considered a negative factor. Negative housing credit history will result in automatic denial of an application.

ADDITIONAL DEPOSIT/GUARANTOR:  In some instances, the application can only be approved with payment of additional deposit or with a guarantor. For guarantors, the guarantor will complete the Apartment Lease Guaranty form and be qualified in the same manner as the applicant with the exception that they must have an income of five (5) times the amount of monthly rent. Income and credit must be verifiable in the United States. Guarantors will not be accepted for applicants who do not meet our community’s credit and criminal history criteria. 

PUBLIC RECORDS/CRIMINAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION: A public records search will be conducted on each adult occupant. Any one or more of the following will result in automatic denial of the application.
•    Felonies and/or misdemeanors involving convictions, probation, deferred adjudication, or pending cases for Weapons, Violence, Crime/Injury to Persons or Sexual Offenses.
•    Felonies including convictions, probation, deferred adjudication, or pending cases for Theft of Property, Damage to Property, or Drug Violation with less than 10 years since completion of sentence.
•    Misdemeanors including convictions, probation, deferred adjudication, or pending cases for Theft of Property, Damage to Property, or Drug Violation (misdemeanor marijuana possession excluded) with less than 7 years since completion of sentence.

OCCUPANCY GUIDELINES:  2 occupants per bedroom. Family members under 12 months of age at the time of lease signing will not be considered an occupant for purposes of this standard. Should the individual reach the age of 12 months during the lease term, the household will be required upon the expiration of their current lease to either transfer to a larger apartment at the community which meets the guidelines or give notice to vacate at the end of the lease term.
