Rental Scoring and Your Rental Application
We rely upon a Rental Score to estimate the relative financial risk of leasing an apartment to you. In addition to estimating risk, rental scores are an objective and consistent way of reviewing relevant applicant information and help speed the application approval process.
How is my rental score determined?
Rental scoring systems assign points to certain factors identified as having a statistical correlation to future financial lease performance. Your rental score results from a mathematical analysis of information found in your credit report, application data, and previous rental history. Such information may include your bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts you have, collection actions, outstanding debt, and the number of inquiries in your consumer report. The final number, or rental score, represents an estimated level of risk as compared to the performance of other consumers in a range of scores.
your rental score is based upon real data and statistics, it is more reliable
than subjective methods of evaluating your information. Rental scoring treats
all applicants consistently and impartially. Additionally, your rental score never
uses certain characteristics like-- race, color, sex, familial status,
handicap, national origin, or religion as factors.
What can I do to improve my rental score?
Your rental score may change based upon changes of the underlying information. The total improvement, however, generally depends on how that factor relates to other factors considered by the scoring system. Nevertheless, to improve your rental score, concentrate on paying your bills on time, paying down outstanding balances, and not taking on new debt.
