Tenant Approval Criteria

HCM Property Management conducts business in accordance with the Federal and State Fair Housing Laws. We are pledged to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Policy for achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support a program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

In order to process your application, we will need the following items:

  1. Completed application for every person over the age of 18 years that will be living in the property. Each adult must complete their own individual application. Applications must be completed on-line through our website at hcmpm.com.
  2. Copy of a valid photo ID
  3. Proof of Income for all applicants. Applicants should make gross income in excess of a combined minimum of 2.5 times the monthly rental amount. Verification of income may include, but not limited to, last two paycheck stubs, W2 forms, 1099 forms, personal tax returns, proof of government income such as Social Security, Disability, etc, proof of retirement income, liquid assets such as bank or investment accounts, proof of child or spousal support.
  4. Non-Refundable screening fee of $50 per application. This fee is paid on-line during the application process.

Please note the following before applying:

  1. Each applicant is screened for Credit, Income, Rental History, and Criminal Background. We process applicants on a first-come basis, but if we receive multiple applications in a short time period, we will select the best qualified candidate, which includes consideration of lease start date.
  2. We incur costs to process and screen each application and as such, APPLICATION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
  3. Only completed application packages will be processed. A completed application package includes the four items listed above. Please attach all documentation to your on-line application.
  4. Our application process generally takes 3-4 days to complete upon receipt of completed applications from all prospective tenants. Processing time frame can vary based on number of applicants..
  5. We STRONGLY encourage all applicants to view the property before submitting an application.
  6. Pet Policy – Please check out listing to confirm if pets will be considered. You must attach a photo of your pet with your application to be processed. Due to insurance purposes, we cannot allow the following breeds in any of our rentals: Doberman, Mastiff, Boerboel, Rottweiler, American Bulldog, Presa Carnario, Pit Bull and similar Terrier breeds, Chow, Dogo Argentino, German Shepherd, Husky, Bandog, Wolf Hybrids, Akita, Fila Brasiliero, or Tosa Inu. HCM assesses a pet administration fee of $40 per pet. This will be added to your monthly rent if applicable.
  7. If your application is approved, HCM Property Management will require 2-5 business days to get the property ready for move-in.
  8. If your application is approved, HCM Property Management will require a non-refundable $1,000 Property Holding Fee to remove this property from the active market until your move in date. This fee is Non-Refundable but will be credited toward your security deposit at Move In. The property owner suffers a financial loss when the property is not being marketed for lease. If you cancel your scheduled move-in after paying the Property Holding Fee, the fee will be forwarded to the property owner to compensate them for their financial loss.
  9. All HCM Property Management residents are enrolled in the Resident Benefits Package (RBP) for $39.95/month which includes renters insurance, HVAC air filter delivery (for applicable properties), credit building to help boost your credit score with timely rent payments, $1M Identity Protection, move-in concierge service making utility connection and home service setup a breeze during your move-in, our best-in-class resident rewards program, and much more! For more information see the Residents Benefits Package Section.

We utilize a risk-based deposit model. In some cases, we will ask for a higher deposit (or co-signor) depending on a number of factors detailed below:

Credit Scores

  • Our minimum credit score requirement is 680
  • Applicants with credit scores between 600 and 680 may be considered, but will require a higher security deposit
  • Applicants with credit scores below 600 will not be considered

Bankruptcy/Charge-offs/Collection Accounts

  • All bankruptcies must be charged off greater than 2 years ago to be considered
  • Medical collections are ignored
  • Applicants with negative utility accounts within the last 6 months will not be considered

Rental Payment History

  • Applicants with any unpaid rental debt or an eviction in the last 7 years will be denied
  • Applicants with any rental history reflecting 2 or more 30 day late payments in the last 24 months will be denied

Rent to Income Ratio

  • Combined gross income from all applicants should be a minimum of 2.5 times the monthly rent
  • Combined gross income from all applicants between 2.0 and 2.49 times the monthly rent considered but will require a higher security deposit (or co-signor)
  • Combined gross income from all applicants less than 2.0 times the monthly rent will not be considered.

Criminal Background

A criminal background check will be completed on each applicant. An applicant will be denied for any felony conviction within the past 7 years or if they have been convicted of any sex crime.

 Co-Signers

Co-signers will be considered. Co-signers must have a credit score of at least 700 with no late rent/mortgage payments or tax liens. Co-signers must also make at least 2.5 times the monthly rent.

Hello friend, Instead of going for a loan I decided to invest in Bitcoin and Forex trade with Mrs, Ariella crypto, after I've read so many good reviews about her. I was laughed at by most of my friends who thought i was a fool by sending my hard earned money to MRS ARIELLACRYPTO, I am glad to tell you that she is the only legit trader I know. This woman did a marvellous job with my investment of $18,200 BTC, I made a withdrawal of $260,000 directly to my bitcoin wallet yesterday, After all the trauma I had from my previous investment, You can invest safely with her, there are no hidden charges. With an investment of $2000 you can make more than $22,000 in 7 days. Contact her on: via Email: ariellacryptofx@gmail.com WhatsApp:+1[413]423-2035 Please do remember to mention me as your referrer so I can earn my bonus, a good turn deserves another right?

HCM Property Management started to manage our rental property one month ago, and we have been very impressed with their work. They coordinated with the tenant to move out smoothly and they were able to put the property back on the market very quickly. It’s amazing they managed to rent it out within one week! Gabby Lopez is our main contact person and she has been on top of everything and get things arranged and taken care of in a timely manner. She is very responsive and professional. It’s definitely the right decision to have HCM to manage our property!
