Before submitting an application for a Cox Real Estate Managed Rental House, please read through our rental requirements to ensure we’re the right fit. We apply our requirement standards equally to every application we receive, and all applications are handled on a first-come basis. Please provide all information requested; applications may be declined for insufficient or incomplete information.
We need an application from each adult 18 and older who will be living in the house. This includes married spouses.
Income and Debt Payments:
The combined gross income of all persons living in your St George rental house should be at least 3 times the monthly rental rate (income requirement and/or deposits may be raised depending on income).
We will calculate your income by taking your annual income and divide it by 12 to get your monthly income.
We’ll then take your monthly income and multiple it by 31% which will give us your total maximum housing payment.
We will then add up all your monthly debt payments (car payments, credit card payments, medical payments, student loans, etc) and your projected monthly rent payment and divide this by your monthly income. This will give us your debt to income ratio and this will need to be 36% or less.
If the rent payment is greater than your total maximum housing payment or your debt to income ratio is larger than 36% your application(s) will be denied.
Occupancy Limits and Roommates:
No more than 2 Persons per Bedroom.
Effective November 1, 2020, if you are applying to live in a unit with roommates please note that you must have a minimum of 1-year history living together. Also please note that ALL ROOMMATES must either renew or move out after the lease term is completed. If a roommate moves out during a lease, the remaining residents will need to prove that they can pay the rent in full or move out as well. (Terminating the lease early will result in a lease termination fee).
All of our units are pet free.
Note: To ensure compliance with the Americans with Disability Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitiation Act of 1973, and the Fair Housing Act if you are seeking a Reasonable Accommodation under the law for a service or support animal please fill out an Assistance Animal request at https://Cox.petscreening.com. There is no cost ($0) to you to submit an accommodation request. This accommodation request will be reviewed a third-party legal review team.
All of our units are non smoking as well as no vaping. Please do not plan on renting and then smoking, including inside the unit, the garage, and the yard.
Credit & Payment History:
Your application will be automatically denied if you have a judgment, collection, open bankruptcy or delinquent account with a landlord, property management firm, or utility company. Other delinquent accounts and collections will be used to measure your payment history. We consider your credit score, number of collections, and payment history to approve your application. You may be denied or asked to pay a larger security deposit or use a co-signer based on this information.
If you haven’t credit your credit recently you may want to check your credit report prior to applying. Under Federal Law you can check your credit report free by visiting www.AnnualCreditReport.com.
If your credit score is 599 or lower your application will be automatically denied.
If your credit score is between 600 and 699 you maybe asked to provide additional information.
If your credit score is 700 or higher your application will, subject to the rest of our screening criteria, be approved.
Employment will be verified by phone or the applicant can provide a current pay stub or bank statement. Self-employed applicants must provide proof of income in the form of bank statements or tax returns. We also consider the applicant’s length of employment in the same field.
Your application may be denied if the rental history section of the application is incomplete or contains false information. Complete this section of the application in full. If you previously owned your home, you may be asked for verification. We will especially be looking for late payments, evictions, and foreclosures.
Applicants will be asked to disclose any prior arrests, convictions or pending criminal actions. A criminal background check will be conducted. Failure to disclose is grounds for denial. Arrests and pending criminal actions will not, in themselves, be grounds for denial but may be factors used along with other criteria. Convictions of any sort will be evaluated on an individualized basis. Management will consider the nature of the crime and the severity of the crime, along with how much time has passed since the criminal activity and the release from any imprisonment, parole, or probation. Persons who are listed on any sex offender list will not be considered. Persons who have a criminal conviction relating to drugs who have not provided evidence of completed drug rehabilitation will not be accepted nor will persons whose drug conviction relates to conviction for other than possession. Applicants should be aware that serious convictions relating to crimes involving violence, gang activity, arson, and injury to persons will likely be denied. Also persons who have been recently released from prison, parole, or probation may be required to provide additional information and references.
Management will evaluate the criminal history on an individualized basis which may be used as one factor in the application process. Applicants with criminal history are encouraged to properly disclose the information and to provide management with such other information as may assist in explaining the circumstances and mitigating factors of the criminal history. Denied applicants may petition for reconsideration and may then provide additional information to be considered.
Once you lease a home with us you need to immediately schedule utilities to be transferred into your name, per your lease. You can find the contact info on our Tenant Utilities page.
