Rental Guidelines

Thank you for considering partnering with Suncoast Leasing and Management.

These are general guidelines of the areas we review in the application process.

Please note that each individual property owner makes the decision which applicant to approve for residency at their property. We instruct our owners to look at the overall picture when making a decision.

CREDIT: Credit reports on all applicants will be presented to the property owners. While most owners are looking for applicants with overall good credit, certain cases with less than perfect credit may be acceptable coupled with good rental references.

CRIMINAL: Felony convictions for violent crimes will automatically disqualify your application. Applicants listed on a Sex Offender registry will automatically disqualify you from renting one of our properties. 

EVICTIONS: Evictions in the past 7 years will automatically disqualify you from renting one of our properties.

INCOME: Typical income requirements are 3 times of the gross monthly rent between all applicants. Child support is not considered income for the purposes of qualifying for a rental.

RENTAL: We will be verifying your rental references. Negative rental references may or may not disqualify your application from our services. 

PETS: If pets are allowed, you will be required to pay $300 non-refundable pet fee per pet.  Certain breed restrictions may be prohibited to reside at certain properties, please inquire with your agent before applying.

APPLICATION FEE: Application fee(s) are non-refundable. Each adult (any person over 18 years of age), to occupy the property MUST apply and pay the application fee.

RESIDENT PAYMENTS: All approved residents will be required to sign the lease and pay security/pet deposit and fees within 24 hours of approval.

Residents are provided with a convenient portal where deposit (s) and monthly rent payments can be made. There are no fees to make online payments.  Payments can be made using a checking account. At this time debit and credit card payments are not an option for payment. 

Residents are strongly encouraged to use this option to avoid any lost mail and late charges.

We look forward to partnering with you!
