Rental Application Criteria

Thank you for your interest in renting from Pellego Property Management

Please be prepared to pay the $39 application fee. In addition to our rental application, you will also be required to provide a copy of a valid form of picture identification and proof of income. Applications submitted without a picture ID and proof of income will be canceled.

To complete our rental application, you must provide 3 years of residential history as well as contact information for your rental references.

Each resident over the age of 18 must submit a separate rental application.

The application fee is paid to an outside agency and is non-refundable. We do not accept reusable portable screening reports or screening reports from other agencies. We do require you first see the home you are applying for. Please do not submit an application for a home sight unseen.

Our Rental Criteria Includes:

*Criminal history. We consider how long ago the crime occurred, circumstances, and evidence of rehabilitation. Each property owner will make their own decision based on the results of the online criminal history check.
*Gross Income must be at least 3 times the rent for single family homes and 2 times the rent for apartments. (All sources of income do count, such as social security retirement/disability, support payments, etc.)
