Millennial Apartments, LLC
Resident Screening Criteria and Application Policies
Millennial Apartments, LLC conducts business in accordance with all federal, state, and local fair housing
laws. It is our policy to provide housing on an equal opportunity basis to all persons regardless of race, color,
religion, sex, national origin, handicap, or familial status.
Purpose of this Document
We offer the following information so that all applicants will have available to them a detailed statement of the
rental qualifying policies. Although we have attempted to make this document easy to read, by its nature as a
statement of policy, it includes formal language and legal terms. If you have any questions about our policies or
about the information in this document, then please contact any member of our management team.
How to Apply to Rent an Apartment
If you wish to apply for an apartment, then you must fully complete an application, pay the required nonrefundable
rental application fee, and pay the required non-refundable administrative fee. All applicants must be
18 years of age or older. All applicants are required to sign and date the application. We may make inquiries to
verify information provided on your rental application. After approval, you must sign a lease agreement, take
occupancy, and begin paying rent on the expected move-in date. If the apartment of your choice is unavailable or
you cannot take occupancy and pay rent within the allowed time period, you will be placed on a waiting list. We
will not hold vacant apartments longer than fourteen days, and, depending on market conditions, the hold period may
be shorter. We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that you move in to the assigned apartment. However,
we cannot be held liable for any damages you incur if a current resident holds over. If that happens, then we
will attempt to place you in a comparable apartment, subject to availability.
When you apply, you will need to show valid, state or federally-issued identification. Acceptable identification
includes a driver’s license, passport, or a state-issued photo identification card.
Co-Signers will be allowed to help qualify full-time students or persons who have graduated from a college or
university within the previous twelve months or applicants scoring within the conditionally approved tier level of the
credit screening system. Co-signers must complete and submit an application form and must qualify on all of the
criteria listed in this document. Co-signers must be close relatives of the applicant and are expected to sign the lease
agreement prior to the applicant(s) moving in. (Out of town co-signers may have the lease e-mailed to them
for appropriate e-signatures.) Consult your management representative for information about co-signer application
Applicants are required to have favorable credit ratings in order to be approved for an apartment. An extensive,
negative credit history is grounds for the denial of an application. Millennial Apartments, LLC uses
information obtained from a consumer credit reporting agency. In keeping with our policy of confidentiality and
privacy, we do not discuss individual credit reports with an applicant. If you would like to discuss or dispute
anything in your credit report, then you will need to contact the credit bureau that issued the report. We will provide
you with the name and address of that credit bureau.
Millennial Apartments, LLC requires two years’ favorable rental or mortgage history. Applicants must
supply verifiable landlord or mortgage holder references. Negative rental history includes, but is not limited to, the
following: NSF checks, late payments, noise complaints, unfulfilled lease term, foreclosure, eviction, unpaid
balances, and damages to the premises.
Applicants must provide proof of current employment as well as employment for the previous year. Combined
income must meet the 2.5 times the rent requirement. Salary must be verified with each employer by copies of
check stubs showing year-to-date salary and taxes, by showing the last year’s W2, or by other written evidence
acceptable to us. All additional sources of income must also be verified. If you are self-employed or retired, then
you must provide proof of income by furnishing copies of federal income tax returns for the previous year or other
verifiable documentation acceptable to us.
At times mitigating circumstances might allow an applicant that does not meet our credit, rental or income criteria to
be approved. Poorly rated accounts with a zero balance, voluntary repossessions, and poorly rated accounts that are
a result of a contested divorce are some examples of mitigating circumstances. A security deposit from $200 up to
one (1) months rent or some portion thereof might be required. (If an applicant declines this request, the application
is therefore denied.)
Criminal Offenses and Arrests
Millennial Apartments, LLC attempts to provide a safe living environment for all of its residents. Any
applicant or occupant who has either been convicted of a criminal offense or arrested for an offense that is
included in our screening criteria may be denied residency. These offenses include but are not limited to: murder,
drug activity, sexual offenses, breaking and entering, serious theft and fraud offenses, and assault with a deadly
weapon. Millennial Apartments, LLC will take into consideration any Felony that is over 10 years, depending
on the nature of the felony. Not noting any of the listed offenses on the application will be grounds for immediate
Millennial Apartments, LLC requires evidence of renters insurance before you may take possession of an
apartment. Residents are required to have at least $100,000 of personal liability coverage, and we strongly
recommend (but do not require) that you also obtain personal contents coverage of at least $20,000. Insurance
coverage may be obtained from any insurance company licensed to issue such coverage in the state in which the
apartment community is located. Policies must state that the insurance carrier will provide us at least 10 days
prior written notice of cancellation or non-renewal of the coverage. We request that we be named as “interested
party” with respect to the required coverage. We will provide you full terms of the insurance requirement prior to
