Whether you are renting or purchasing a home at Walnut Ridge, everyone must receive community approval. This ensures that we can build a safe, beautiful community for all of our residents.
When evaluating your rental application, we look for:
All parties on the lease will be required to provide proof of identity using their Social Security Number.
While there are not any specific financial qualifications you need to meet, we do look at:
- Credit score
- Debt to income ratio
- Stable employment history
- Proof of income
By reviewing your financial qualifications, including credit score, we are able to ensure that you have the ability to make your monthly home payments. Equifax provides the following credit score ratings. Most of our residents have a fair or higher credit rating at the time of their application.
Clear Criminal History.
All persons applying will be subject to a background check that alerts our team of any felonies or property destruction crimes.
We look for a clean rental history without any previous evictions. Letters of recommendation from previous landlords are not required, but could be helpful when explaining any incidents on your record.
Walnut Ridge is pet friendly and we welcome residents to have 2 pets per home. As a part of your application, all pets will be subject to our pet screening process. (Service animals are exempt from screening when documentation is provided.)
We encourage anyone interested in living at Walnut Ridge to contact our Sales Managers at 517-796-1388 to discuss their specific situations.
