APPROVING YOUR APPLICATION

To qualify for a unit, the following items will be considered:

  • Credit history
  • Household income (must be at least 3X to 4X the monthly rent, and must be verifiable)
  • Guarantors (when income is not equivalent to or greater than 3X the monthly rent, a guarantor may be required. Guarantors must have an annual income of at least 80X to 100X the monthly rent and/or significant financial assets)
  • Rental references (must have satisfactory rental references from at least two prior landlords the past two years)
  • Evictions or lease violations
  • Rental history
  • Criminal history

Please note that incomplete applications may be rejected. 

If your application is approved, an additional payment will be required to hold the apartment until lease signing occurs. This payment will range from $200 to the equivalent of one month’s rent depending on the apartment. A Dixon Leasing representative will inform you of the amount of this payment, should your application be approved. This payment is non-refundable after 24 hours. This payment will be applied to your first month’s rental payment should you sign a valid lease for the apartment.

Once Dixon Leasing informs you that your rental application has been approved, you must make all reasonable efforts to sign a valid lease within three (3) business days. In the event you do not sign a valid lease for the apartment, and you have not informed Dixon Leasing of your withdrawal within 24 hours of making the payment, the payment will not be refunded.

Lease Signing

At the lease signing, please bring government-issued photo identification, first month’s rent, security deposit, and any required pet fees which can be paid by credit or debit card, cashier’s check, or money order. Remember to bring proof of renter’s insurance and account numbers for your gas and electric accounts. The security deposit and first month’s rent must be paid in full prior to receiving the keys. Partial payments will not be accepted.
