Each person over 18 must fill out an application and submit the application fee.  We will quickly process your application when all information and fees are collected.  Please allow us 48hrs to process the application, many times it will not take the full allotted time.  We will get back to you as soon as we have an update. Calling in to check on the application status will only slow down the process.  West Property Management is an equal opportunity housing provider and adheres to Fair Housing Laws. We do not discriminate against any person based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, disability, veteran status, marital status, source of income, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other protected class under applicable federal, state, and/or local law 

Applicants will be asked to disclose any prior convictions or pending criminal actions. A criminal background check will be conducted. Failure to disclose is grounds for denial. Pending criminal actions will not, in themselves, be grounds for denial but may be factors used along with other criteria. Convictions of any sort will be evaluated on an individualized basis. Management will consider the nature of the crime and the severity of the crime, along with how much time has passed since the criminal activity and the release from any imprisonment, parole, or probation. Persons who are listed on any sex offender list will not be considered. Persons who have a criminal conviction relating to drugs who have not provided evidence of completed drug rehabilitation will not be accepted nor will persons whose drug conviction relates to conviction for other than possession. Applicants should be aware that serious convictions relating to crimes involving violence, gang activity, arson, and injury to persons will likely be denied. Also, persons who have been recently released from prison, parole, or probation may be required to provide additional information and references.

SMOKING POLICY:

Smoking is considered to be the use of cigarettes, vaping, e-cigarettes, and other forms of smoking. WPM does not allow smoking in or on the property, or within 25 feet of any entrance of the property or a neighboring property. WPM reserves the right to not process applications and rent to applicants who smoke. Any exceptions to this are on a case by case basis and may require a higher deposit.

OCCUPANCY:

2 Persons/1 Bedroom (we adhere to the 1+ guideline). Applicants under the age of 25 will require a cosigner or if applying jointly with an applicant 25+ in age, will require a minimum of 2 years positive rental history. No more than 2 unrelated (other than immediate family) “roommate” applicants under the age of 30.

CO-SIGNERS:

The option for a Co-Signer may be offered only to Applicants that do not satisfy the Income Requirements, Credit Requirements, and/or Rental/Residency History (only lack of history, not negative history). Co-Signers must complete, sign, and pay for a separate application for the Property. Co-Signers are subject to the same Rental Criteria, background checks, and verification as described above. Co-Signers must provide proof of income which would satisfy the income requirement on their own. If the application is approved, the Co-Signer must sign the rental agreement as if they are moving into the rental. Co-Signers will be held responsible for the Lease and any other costs incurred on the Lease, such as damages should the occupying Tenant(s) default. WPM reserves the right to not offer the option for a Co-Signer.

PET POLICY:

Check each available Property for specific pet policies. Pets may be denied if they do not receive a positive reference from the previous Landlord regarding the pet’s behavior, if the pet is not spayed or neutered, and/or if a complete veterinary medical history (including immunizations and sterilization) of the pet is not provided. An additional pet deposit, monthly pet fee, one-time pet fee, or combination thereof will be required. Where applicable, restricted breeds will result in denial. All pets and animals must have a separate pet application found on WPM website. If a pet is a registered service animal, proper documentation must be provided at the time the application is received. If a pet is considered an emotional support animal, a doctor’s note from a licensed medical professional that is considered capable to deem such animal as an emotional support animal will be required at the time the application is received.
Unless otherwise specified, restricted pets & breeds include: Ferrets, Large Snakes (over 2 lbs.), Exotic Animals, Birds (case by case), German Shepherd, Doberman, Chow, Rottweiler, Akita, American Staffordshire Terrier, Pit Bull, Presa Canario, Great Dane, Wolf Hybrid.
