Rental Criteria

Indio Management is committed to comply with all federal, state, and local fair housing laws. It is our policy to comply with all laws that prohibit discrimination, including those that forbid discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familiar status, or disability, and any other local laws protecting specific classes.

In order to assist you with your decision on your new home, we are providing here a list of guidelines that we use to qualify residents for residency in our communities. Nothing contained in these requirements constitutes representation by Indio Management that all residents and occupants currently residing in our communities have met or currently meet these guidelines.

In order to apply, you must provide a valid, government-issued photo ID at the time of application processing for each Applicant aged eighteen (18) and older.

Pre-existing delinquent accounts which have been sent to collections, excluding student loan and medical debt, and which exceed a combined amount specified by Indio Management, may result in an additional deposit amount being required.

No credit, or a lack of credit, may also result in an additional deposit amount being required.

  1. RENTAL HISTORY

Applicant(s) will not be accepted if there have been more than four (4) delinquent payments within the past twelve (12) months. No unpaid evictions or property debt are permitted. Any previous eviction filings/judgments could result in a conditional approval. Any debt owed to any Indio property will result in denial of application. No bankruptcies, foreclosures or tax liens within the past two (2) years are permitted. Any tax liens need to be paid off and at a zero balance. If an applicant(s) has limited or no rental history or derogatory rental history, an additional deposit may be required.

Guarantors will only be accepted when income requirements are not met. Guarantors will be held responsible for the lease and any other costs incurred on the lease, including damages, should the occupying resident(s) default on the lease. Guarantors must fill out an application, and will be subject to the standard application fees, rental or mortgage verification, and credit and criminal background checks. Guarantors must provide proof of income (see section 5) in an amount equal to no less than five (5) times the monthly market rental rate. A lack of verifiable rental history may require an additional deposit. Guarantor must complete and sign a lease guaranty agreement if approved.

  1. INCOME

As part of the screening process, your income will be verified. We consider the gross monthly income for all Applicant(s), which must equal no less than two-and-a-half (2.5) to three (3) times the monthly market rental amount.

Prior to approval, Applicant(s) will be asked to produce proof of income by presenting any of the following:

  • Copies of last two (2) consecutive payroll check stubs
  • Previous year’s W-2 or 1099
  • Copies of last two (2) consecutive bank/financial statements
  • Proof of child and/or spousal support payments
  • Proof of Social Security income, disability, or other government income
  • Proof of retirement or trust fund income
  • Current offer letter for income/employment verification
  • Proof of assets that meet the income requirement
  • Student financial aid or grants documentation clearly stating portion designated for housing
    • Students who do not meet income requirements will need a qualified co-signer

If self-employed:

  • Previous year’s personal income tax return and two (2) months of personal bank statements
  • Three (3) months of personal bank statements to show consistency of income

All applicants are required to pay any fees that have been placed in their account prior to move-in with certifiable funds. Checks and other non-certifiable funds will not be accepted.

  1. DENIALS

Applicants that are applying together for one unit will be denied if both do not pass the screening process. In the case that both applicants are denied based on one applicant’s screening, the other applicant may choose to proceed on their own. However, the applicant must submit a new application on their own and will be re-screened as they are now completing a separate application.
