Qualification Criteria


It is Walters Home Management’s policy to provide a standardized guideline for accepting tenants, to ensure all applicants are treated fairly and equally, to eliminate the possibility of discrimination in rental decisions and to accept only responsible tenants, who will pay rent on time and maintain the rental property.

Each applicant’s screening report will be reviewed for three types of adverse information: TERMINALS, NEGATIVES and REQUIREMENTS. All adverse information applies to applicants and their household members. If any one TERMINAL item is found, without extenuating circumstances, the application will be denied. If more than three NEGATIVE items are found, with no extenuating circumstances, the application will be denied. All REQUIREMENTS must be met.


The following items will be considered terminal:


The following items will be considered negative items:



No applicant shall be declined on the basis of their race, sex, religion, marital status, family status, age or by any other method of discrimination by treating one person or group different than other persons or groups who have the same characteristics, or by any laws, legal codes or regulations that prohibits discriminatory practices.

It is the policy of Walters Home Management (WHM) to actively pursue and offer equal housing for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, disability or any other federal, state and local laws regarding fair housing.

All applicants are required to meet the Residential Acceptance Policy detailed on the reverse side. The following is additional information to consider as you consider applying for a WHM property:

General Guidelines

Income Documentation

Verifiable Residency

Credit History

WHM policy on payment history and credit is detailed on the above. If an applicant has late payments that are isolated to a mortgage and all other credit is satisfactory and income requirements are met, WHM will recommend approval to the property owner.

Possible Cures for Less than Standard Qualifications (on an individual basis at property owner discretion)

Application Selection Criteria

Applicants understand that more than one application may be received on a property. Walters Home Management does not select residents on a ”first-come, first-served” basis. If more than one application is submitted at the same time (or similar time), approval is based on a best-qualified basis and on the property owner’s requirements. The property will remain on the market during the application process and will only be taken off of the market when a completed application, along with and a signed Holding Deposit Agreement and holding deposit are received by Walters Home Management. A completed application consists of all “Required” items listed above, plus a signed rental acceptance agreement from all occupants over 18 years old.
