Rental/Tenant Criteria

Thank you for your interest in renting a residential property from Windermere Property Management.


Please know that our properties are rented on a first-come first-serve basis. After we receive a completed application with all supporting materials, we no longer show or accept applications on the property. If we decline the application it will be available to rent again.

General Requirements to Rent from Windermere Property Management

  • Applicants combined gross income is roughly triple the monthly rent
  • Applicants have no prior evictions or outstanding balances with former landlords
  • Applicants have reasonable credit worthiness as demonstrated in their credit report
  • See our * attached rental criteria for more detailed information.

Things to bring when submitting an application

  • A completed Rental Application for each adult that will be living on the property. You can pick up applications at our office or request one via email at or apply online.
  • Application Fee for each application (Amount will vary depending on property). This fee covers our costs to pull your credit report and verify your application.
  • Copies of Drivers License(s). We will need a copy of each applicant's driver's license to verify signatures of applicants before requesting your credit history. We can make copies at our office if you bring each license.
  • Verification of income for all applicants. Either a recent paycheck stub or documentation indicating how much consistent income each applicant makes. Child support and similar funds are accepted.
  • Holding Deposit in secured funds. No cash. Holding Deposit must be either a money order or cashiers check. The Holding Deposit is fully-refundable if your rental application(s) is declined after our screening process. If all applicants will be submitting rental applications at the same time, you can fill out the Holding Deposit Agreement in our office. If not all applicants will be present, please print the Holding Deposit Agreement and have everyone sign it and we'll fill it out at our office.
