CONTINGENCY LEASE:. This process is designed to allow applicants who are sure they have found the home for them to reserve the home and hopefully spend less on application fees at a bunch of properties. If at the time of applying, the applicant wishes to rent the premises, applicant can pay the application fee and the security deposit, and sign the rental agreement as a contingency lease (the unit is yours unless you are denied via the application process). The contingency is that Morgan Property Management needs to complete the application verification process. If tenant fails to meet the criteria, the applicant is denied and the security deposit is fully refunded. If approved, the deposit is applied toward the lease. If approved and the applicant does not take possession of the premises as agreed to in the lease, this is treated as a lease break and appropriate charges will apply per the lease. Please email or call immediately if you wish to put down a deposit and sign a contingency lease. Security deposit funds must be via money order, cashier's check, or through the online payment portal at www.morganidaho.com.
PROCESSING: Each application must be complete, signed and fee paid before it will be processed. Additional applications will continue to be accepted until an approved applicant has signed the lease and paid the security deposit. Processing will normally be completed within 48 hours on business days; however it can take longer if a complication arises such as difficulties contacting your past landlords or county criminal records are delayed. A copy of applicant's driver's license or other government issued ID is required along with income verification and will become part of the completed application. All information on application is subject to verification. Applications will be denied if falsified. Once approved, each applicant must sign the lease and be fully responsible for the lease, rent or any fees due.If application is denied, an approved Co-Signer may substitute their application, sign the lease and accept full financial responsibility along with the applicant. In lieu of a Co-Signer, and at MPM's discretion, the applicant may pay a security deposit equal to the maximum the law will allow. Guideline requirements may be waived if applicant prepays rent for the full term of the lease.
RENTAL HISTORY: Applicant must have good rental references unless applicant has just sold their home. Relatives are not acceptable as rental references. Application may be denied for evictions, damages beyond normal wear and tear, illegal activity on premises, refusal to re-rent by previous landlord or a balance still owed to previous landlord.
INCOME: Application may be denied unless rent is no more than 40% of verifiable household income. To be considered as income, applicant must provide verification of SSI, food stamps, or child support. Unemployment payments will never be considered income. Section 8 or BHA/AHA subsidy can be considered as income for participating properties only, but rent can not exceed 40% of the verifiable household income. If applicant does not have any income other than Section 8 or BHA/AHA subsidy, they will be denied due to insufficient income.
CREDIT: All information showing on the credit report is subject to verification, including previous address and place of employment. MPM uses a point system to evaluate credit and does not have a minimum credit score requirement. Applicant gets points for negative items on credit report and too many points disqualifies applicant. Each of the following award points against the applicant: (1) Any 2 credit accounts that have been rated 30-59 days late, (2) Any credit account that has been rated 120 + days late, (3) Any 2 credit accounts which are rated as having gone to collection, (4) Any charge off, discharged Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, vehicle repossession, lien, or any unpaid civil judgments. Any applicant who has an open bankruptcy will automatically be denied.
CRIMINAL BACKGROUND: Felony convictions may be grounds for denial depending on the nature, severity, and time since the conviction. No applicant will be accepted with a felony conviction for an act of violence, sex crime, or illegal manufacture or distribution of drugs. Per federal regulations, special accommodations may be requested for certain drug and alcohol related convictions.
