These inquiries may include information regarding applicant's character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, credit report, and criminal background. Landlord will attach a summary of applicant's rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to applicant's application.
Income History: Except for applicants who receive or who will occupy an apartment unit that receives subsidies or voucher assistance, applicants should must have a gross income source that can be verified and meets the minimum income requirements for the apartment being leased which are determined by multiplying the monthly rent by a specified number of months as determined by the community. Applicants may be required to provide income verification, including a pay stub, a letter from an employer, the most recent W2, the most recent tax return and/or certified verification from company accountant or bank. In instances where sufficient income requirements cannot be met, this community may elect to accept pre-paid rent or a guarantor.
Credit History: Blackhawk Realty Management, LLC may investigate and verify credit history. Landlord evaluates credit history information with a scoring method that weighs the indicators of future rent payment performance, but Landlord retains the right to reject an application no matter an applicant's ultimate scoring. An unsatisfactory credit report can disqualify an applicant from renting an apartment, including one that reflects past or current bad debts, late payments or unpaid bills, liens, judgments or bankruptcies. If an applicant is rejected for poor credit history, the applicant will be given the name, address and telephone number of the credit reporting agency that provided the credit report but not be told the content of the credit report. An applicant rejected for unsatisfactory credit is encouraged to obtain a copy of the credit report from the credit reporting agency, correct any erroneous information that may be on the report, and resubmit an application.
Criminal History: Applicants, occupants and guarantors will not be accepted if they do not satisfy the criminal history inquiries required by or background investigation allowed by the rental application. However, Landlord does not guarantee or represent that residents and/or occupants currently residing at the community qualify under the criminal background criteria required by the rental application.

This community reserves the right to investigate lists of registered sex offenders in any manner including online, in newspapers or by contacting state agencies.
Rental History: Information regarding payment and rental history of each applicant will be collected to verify tenancy. Any applicant who has been previously evicted by a court of law will not be accepted.
