Acer NW Inc - Seattle Properties
Rental Criteria 
January 2018
A holding fee will be required.  If I/we am/are not accepted, my/our holding fee will be returned.  If accepted, the Holding Fee will become the Security Deposit upon move-in, of which there is a fee for carpet cleaning withheld at the time of move out.  The carpet cleaning charge will vary per unit. 
Acer NW, Inc. has approximately two business days to review my/our past rental  history, credit references, employment, and any other factors which will determine if I/we qualify to rent this home. A non-refundable application fee is required per adult (18 and older) who will be living in the unit to process the application.  All residents over 18 years of age must submit a separate application and in the case of a group of occupants, the applications will not be considered complete until all members of the group have submitted their application.  Acer NW, Inc. will only accept credit reports from a third party Consumer Reporting Agency.  Acer NW, Inc. does not accept the comprehensive reusable tenant screening report. The Rental Application that I/we have completed will be used as part of the screening process and will be included in the lease.  I/We understand that Acer NW, Inc. complies with all equal opportunity laws and regulations.  It considers:
1. Financial ability, such as verifiable sources of income of approximately a 3:1 income to rent ratio and verifiable income of at least $3,000.00.  No bankruptcies.
2. Employment history
3. History of timely rent payments
4. Rental history and reputation for taking care of property
5. History of getting along with neighbors and landlords

7. Prompt notification of defects in housing
8. Other information provided by the applicant (such as commencement date, anticipated length of tenancy, etc….)
9. Sex offender registry data.  We do not automatically deny applicants based on sex offender registry that is the result of an adult criminal conviction.  Rather, consideration is based on the nature of the offense and time passed since the date of final disposition.  Supplemental information can be provided to the landlord by the applicant, or produced on behalf of the applicant, with respect to the applicant’s rehabilitation and/or good conduct.  Supplemental information may include, but is not limited to: conviction information; certification of rehabilitation; written or oral statements by the applicant, past or present employer(s), current and prior landlord(s), members of the judiciary or law enforcement, parole officer, member of clergy, counselor or therapists, social workers or similar person(s).
I/we give Acer NW, Inc. permission to contact current and/or previous landlords or property managers and employers for verifications and references.   

I/We understand that if I/we are self-employed, have not rented before, or am/are newly employed, a last month’s  rent might be required. I/ we understand that verifiable and consistent employment of at least 6 months is required, if retired 3 months bank statements will be required, and self-employed must provide bank statements and 2 years tax statements as part of the screening process.

All adults in the rental party must be present to view the interior of the unit.  Applications can be denied unless all applicants have viewed the interior of the property.
Upon agreement of a possession date, if there are applications submitted by multiple rental parties, the first qualified full application who meets all the screening criteria will be offered the rental. I/We understand that I/we could be declined to rent if all adult members of the rental party are not present for the showing of the home.  Once I/we am/are notified that my/our application is accepted, the holding fee will/must be deposited into the Acer NW, Inc. Trust Account within 24-hours and become my/our security deposit upon the commencement date on the lease which I/we will sign.  After being offered the rental, if I/we do not accept and pay the holding fee, the Landlord can go to the next applicant.  If I/we fail to sign the lease prior to the starting date on the lease, I/WE WILL FORFEIT THE HOLDING FEE to compensate the owner for taking the home off the market.  I/we understand that we have no rights or interest to the home until I/we have been accepted by Acer NW, Inc., and my/our holding fee is deposited into the Acer NW, Inc. Trust account. Upon acceptance (by Owner) and mutual agreement of a specific move-in-date, if I/we fail(s) to take possession (“move-in”) by the agreed upon date, I/we will forfeit the holding fee in full and all rights to rent the home unless re-negotiated and accepted by Owner.  I/We understand that the property will then be re-listed for rent.
