Our community supports equal housing opportunity, including the Fair Housing Act as amended, a federal law applicable in all states that prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status or disability. In addition, many states and localities have their own local fair housing laws or ordinances, which may protect additional characteristics from discrimination in housing. Our community does not discriminate on the basis of any state or locally protected characteristics. Please note that these are our current rental criteria; nothing contained in these requirements shall constitute a guarantee or representation that all residents and occupants currently residing at this community have met these requirements. There may be residents and occupants that have resided at this community prior to these requirements going into effect. Additionally, our ability to verify whether these requirements have been met is limited to the information we receive from various resident credit reporting services used. Please review this information before completing the application and paying the application processing fee, which is non-refundable. Falsification of information on the application will result in denial of residency and loss of Holding Fee as liquidated damages for our time and expense.
