Leasing Criteria

Thank you for your interest in renting a home from TrueNest Property Management. If you have not already seen the property, make sure you schedule a showing with your leasing agent so you can know for sure if you’ve found the right home.

As a company, we do business in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Law and welcome Persons of all Race, Color, Religion, Sex, Handicap, Familial Status or National Origin.

It is likely that we may receive multiple applications from unrelated individual applicants on the same property at approximately the same time. If such is the case, we will process all applications for consideration as to what we (in our sole discretion) deem to be the applicant(s) who would be the least likely to default on any and all terms of the lease. In such cases, more than one applicant may be approvable. Because we contractually and legally represent the best interest of the rental property and the property owner, we will accept the strongest application, which may not necessarily be the first application received.

In order to evaluate the various applications, it is necessary for TrueNest Property Management to expend time and cost in credit reports, criminal reports, and other administrative expenses. Hence, our policy is that the application fee is non-refundable. If your application is approvable, but not the approved one for the property for which you were applying, you may consider applying for other available properties that we may have, without payment of an additional application fee for up to 60 days from the notice we issue you at that time.
