Bray & Company Property Management Statement of Rental Policy
We are an equal opportunity housing provider. We fully comply with the federal Fair Housing Act. We do not discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws.
Rental home availability policy. Rental homes become available when they are ready to rent. A vacant rental home will not be deemed available until it has been cleaned and prepared for a new resident. We update our list of available rental homes as each rental home becomes available. A rental home that was unavailable in the morning may become available later that same day. Available rental homes cannot be viewed until application is received.
Occupancy guidelines. To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on plumbing and other building systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in a rental home. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair housing laws. We allow two persons per bedroom.
Application process. We evaluate every unit application in the following manner. You must submit a complete and signed rental application and answer all questions on the form. You must pay the non-refundable application fee. We will determine, from your responses to the applications questions, if you qualify for the unit you are applying for. If you do not, we will reject your application. If you do, we will send your application to our screening company, which will run your credit report, criminal history, employment, and rental references to confirm that they meet our rental criteria. If you meet our criteria, we will approve your application. This process takes one to two days. We will rent available units to applicants in the order that applications are approved and deposit received.
