Anyone 18 years old and over must complete an application. The Screening process is completed by a 3rd party.


Applicants must be gainfully employed, verified through the company's personnel office, or have proof of income through other sources. The proof will be determined sufficient at the sole discretion of Sunnon Property Management. In the event a prospective resident is self-employed or retired, documentation is required, including but not limited to a verifiable tax statement from the previous year. Applicants must have a gross income equal to or greater than 3 times the monthly rental rate. Each applicant/roommate must pay a separate application fee and one administrative fee per home will be charged. Income may be combined to meet jointly the gross income criteria.

Credit & Rental History

A credit report from a Consumer Reporting Agency will be obtained on each applicant. Accounts must be verifiable and in good standing. The minimum credit score is 580. Applicants with no credit history may be eligible to qualify with a Guarantor. Each applicant must also have a satisfactory rental history or mortgage payment history. If not able to produce rental references, the applicant may be eligible to qualify with a Guarantor.


A Guarantor may be used if the applicant doesn’t meet the income requirements or have sufficient credit history to have a credit score. Guarantors must have a credit score of 700 or greater and make 6 times the monthly rent rate. (Guarantors need to fill out their own application mentioning that they're the guarantor) They do pay an application fee. 

Evictions, Bankruptcies & Outstanding Debt

Prior eviction filings, bankruptcies and overdue debt will disqualify the applicant. Overdue debt that is currently delinquent and is not reported as collections, charge-off, paid collection, etc. is only approved on a case-by-case basis and applicants must show proof of payoff prior to approval. Accounts that have made it to collections/charge-off or paid collection status will not be approved. Overdue medical debt is ignored.

Criminal History

A thorough criminal background check is completed on all applicants. Any felony or criminal act related to drugs, sexual offenses or theft or assault of any kind will result in an automatic denial of the application. Sunnon reserves the right to adjust, extend or alter the criminal policy as deemed necessary without notice.
