Individual who are interested in seeking apartment space many times will ask what the apartment qualifications are; or they seem to be worried that an item on their credit report will prevent them from becoming approved. Of course there are a couple items that will prevent you from becoming approved at an apartment immediately.
1) Broken lease-This is normally an automatic strike. However, if you pay off the amount you owe to the apartment community that is claiming you broke your lease; this may allow your approval into your new community.
2) Felony-Apartments frown upon a Felony. Sometimes the apartment managers will work with you. It normally depends what time of felony appears on the report. Many apartments are also declining individuals with certain misdemeanors.
3) Income-Also make sure you make between 3-3.5 times the monthly rent. I have seen cases where my customers have made less and are still approved. Make sure you speak with your leasing consultant. Sometimes if you talk with the property manager this may help as well.
4) Bankruptcy-This is also a touchy subject. This is more of a case by case basis. Many apartments are understanding while others are not.
On a final note there are properties that will work with individuals with all of the above. Ask your locating specialist for addtitional assistance.
