We are grateful you are interested in renting an apartment at Westwood Apartments.  For your convenience, we have prepared this overview of our guidelines used in processing all rental applications.  Please feel free to ask any questions.

We are an equal opportunity housing provider – It is our policy to rent our units in full compliance with the federal Fair Housing Act and all state and local fair housing laws.  We do not discriminate against any person because of race, color, ethnic background, religion, sex, age, marital or family status, physical disability, or sexual orientation.

Rental unit availability – Rental units only become available when they are completely ready to rent, including cleaning, painting, and the completion of all maintenance work and planned improvements.  Rental unit availability can change as units become available during the day or are removed from the rental market based on rentals, cancellations, or maintenance issues.

Valid photo identification and written authorization – You must be able to present a current photo identification such as a driver’s license, military or state identification card, or passport so that we can verify your identity.  If your rental application is approved, we will require a photocopy of your identification at the time of your move-in to be kept in your tenant file.  You must authorize us to verify all information provided in your rental application from credit sources, credit agencies, current and prior landlords and employers, personal references, and allow us to run a criminal background check.

Occupancy guidelines – In compliance with all applicable fair housing laws we have established restrictions on the total number of persons that may occupy a given rental unit.  Our guidelines allow two persons per bedroom plus one additional person per rental unit.  These guidelines are to prevent overcrowding and in keeping with the limitations of the rental unit and its building systems.  Occupancy will be limited to the persons indicated on the original rental application and lease only unless otherwise agreed in writing.  Any proposed additional tenants must complete a rental application and be processed and approved through this same tenant screening process prior to occupying the rental unit.

Application process – All rental applications are evaluated in the same manner and each adult applicant must voluntarily provide his or her social security number for us to obtain a consumer credit report.  Every adult applicant must complete a separate rental application form and pay the nonrefundable application fee in advance.  Any false or incomplete information will result in the denial of your application.  If discovered after you are approved and move-in, we reserve the right to terminate your tenancy.  We will verify the information provided on each rental application through our own screening efforts and/or with the assistance of an independent tenant screening firm.  A credit report, criminal history, and employment and rental references for each and every applicant in a given rental unit will determine whether our rental criteria has been met.  Unless we need to verify information by regular mail, we are usually able to process a rental application within one week.

Thank you again for your interest in Westwood Apartments.
