Fair Housing Policy
We are absolutely committed to compliance with fair housing laws. Please understand that ‘fair housing’ laws do not require equal treatment of all persons, instead they require that persons may not be discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap or familial status.

  • Under federal fair housing laws, rental housing owners may treat people differently for reasons other than those listed above - such as rental history, credit record, criminal history, income, current drug use, etc.
  • Texas fair housing statutes and regulations are identical to federal laws.
  • Local city ordinances may add other protected classes such as age, student status, vocation, sexual preference, etc., which are not protected classes under federal and state law.

Definition of Family
Federal status and regulations define a “family” as follows: A family consists of one or two adult persons or custodians PLUS a child who must be: (1) their natural or adopted child; (2) a child who they have legal custody of or are applying for legal custody of (e.g., guardian/ward or foster parent/child); (3) a child who is living with the adult(s) by written permission of the child’s parent or custodian. A pregnant woman also is considered a family under the federal fair housing statute. (A married couple without children living with them does not constitute a family.)

Occupancy Standards
The maximum of two people are allowed per bedroom (e.g., one bedroom-maximum of two people, two bedroom-maximum of four people and three bedroom-maximum of six people). A child under six months of age at the time of move-in or lease renewal will not be counted in determining the number of persons living in a bedroom.

Each roommate, parent and adult living in a unit must submit a separate rental application. In renting to roommates, all roommates must be 18 years of age or older.

Rental History
Applications owing another apartment community will not be approved for residency. Previous address must match up to the information provided on the application and all rental/housing history will be verified.

Income Requirements
The gross monthly income must equal or exceed the rental amount by three times the market rent. All income MUST be verified by third party; pay stubs, tax returns, social security benefit letter, bank statements, interest/dividend income, pension, retirement funds, etc.

Credit/Criminal Background Check
Credit history will be checked on all applications. Bankruptcies MUST be discharged and proof of discharge documents must be provided to management.

  • Criminal records showing any of the following felonies are automatic rejection: murders, rapes, molestations, kidnapping, burglaries, felony theft, robberies, arson, terrorism, selling drugs, manufacturing drugs and parole violations.
  • Criminal records showing any of the following are discretionary rejection: DWI, bad checks, misdemeanor drug use, possession of a prohibited weapon, petty theft and all other non­violent crimes.

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 as amended in 1988, is recognized as the “Federal Fair Housing Act” which prohibits discrimination in all types of housing transactions such as in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings based on race, color, religion, national origin, disability or familial status.
