(3) asked by staff to leave the premises and refuses.
Fair Housing Statement: We are a fair housing provider and do not discriminate against persons based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, familial status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age.
Denial: Within 14 days of rejecting a rental application, We will notify the applicant in writing of the denial and identify the criteria the applicant failed to meet.
All applications, including credit verification and background checks, are processed by First Advantage.
First Advantage is an agency that performs all screening activities for applicants. An applicant’s credit history, criminal history, and application are kept confidential and are not disclosed to any other person or entity without the applicant’s express authorization.

Address : First Advantage Background Services Corp
Consumer Center
P.O. Box 105108
Atlanta, GA 30348
Telephone: 888-517-8324

Income: Each applicant must demonstrate a minimum of 2.5 times the monthly rent of the proposed unit to ensure the applicant’s ability to pay the monthly rent. However, an applicant will be allowed an exception to the income requirement if the applicant can demonstrate a history of successful rent payment with the same or lower ratio of income to rent. If an applicant fails to meet the requirements of this section, Landlord, at its sole discretion, may approve the applicant with conditions of pre-payment of rent or additional security deposit in an amount not to exceed state law or local ordinances.

Evictions and Rental History: Applicants must have a positive housing history. We strongly prefer at least 2 years of recent positive rental history verified by professional landlord references; however, insufficient rental history will not form a basis for denial unless the applicant in bad faith withholds rental history information that might otherwise form a basis for denial.An applicant’s eviction and rental history will be reviewed and considered as follows:
a. An eviction action pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 504 or other equivalents in other states that occurred 3 or more years before the applicant submits the application will NOT form a basis for denial.
b. An eviction action pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 504 or other equivalents in other states that did not result in a judgment entered against the applicant will NOT form a basis for denial.
c. An eviction action pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 504 or other equivalents in other states that occurred less than 3 years from the date the applicant submits the application AND resulted in a judgment entered against the applicant WILL form a basis for denial.
d. Verification, from a professional landlord reference, that applicant owes prior or current landlord for rent, damages, or related charges under lease agreement WILL form a basis for denial, unless the applicant obtained a judicial finding that the applicant is not responsible for the rent, damages, or related charges.

Credit: A credit report will be run on every applicant. A credit score, by itself, will not form the basis for denial, but information within the credit report may be used to form the basis of a denial of the application if the information in the credit report demonstrates a failure to pay rent or utility bills. Insufficient credit history will not form the basis for denial unless the applicant, in bad faith, withholds credit history information that  might otherwise form a basis for denial. If an applicant fails to meet the requirements of this section, we, at our sole discretion, may approve the applicant with conditions of pre-payment of rent or additional security deposit in an amount not to exceed state law or local ordinances.

Criminal History: Any criminal history, NOT included in one of the exceptions below, will be a basis for denial. Prior to denying any applicant based on criminal history, we will consider supplemental evidence provided by the applicant, if provided at the time of application submittal.
