Please Read Before Applying!  Call with questions: (801) 294-0800 ext 8

WE ARE AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY HOUSING PROVIDER. We fully comply with the federal Fair Housing Act. We do not discriminate against any person because of race, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We also comply with all state and local fair housing laws. It is our intent to make quality housing available to as many qualified applicants as possible.

AVAILABILITY. Properties become available when they are ready to rent. A vacant property will not be deemed available until it has been cleaned and prepared for a new resident. We update our list of upcoming available properties as they are prepared. An upcoming available property that was not published in the morning may become published later that same day.

Lots of people under one roof.

A. How many people per rental home?


OCCUPANCY GUIDELINES. To prevent overcrowding and undue stress on the unit and it's systems, we restrict the number of people who may reside in an apartment/house. In determining these restrictions, we adhere to all applicable fair housing laws. 

We use the following rules to calculate how many people may reside in one of our properties:

Family: Maximum of 2 people per bedroom + 1 overall

Roommates: Maximum of 2 people per bedroom/ 4 people per bathroom.  (NOTE: In addition to our maximums, we also adhere to each cities Unrelated Residents code to determine ultimately how many roommates may reside in our properties.) PLEASE SEE Section D-6 Below for additional roommate terms.

We utilize the following for defining a "family":  A family consists of one of two adult parents 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), or (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.)  If you have a specific family need and would like to request a variance, please contact us.  


Examples of Occupancy Guidelines

  • One Adult= Studio Unit or Larger
  • Two Adults (Married or Un-Married)= Studio Unit or Larger
  • Family of Two= Studio Unit or Larger
  • Family of Three=Studio Unit or Larger
  • Family of Four=Two Bedroom or Larger
  • Family of Five=Two Bedroom or Larger

Application Approved

D. How will I be Screened?

RENTAL CRITERIA. To qualify for a property you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Income. It is your responsibility to provide completed SOURCE OF FUNDS VERIFICATION FORMs from current/past employers. Your household monthly income must be at least two times the monthly rent. Your total monthly obligations (including rent for the property you are applying for) must not exceed 80% of your income. If source of income being used to qualify is not from employment, you must provide proof of a source of income. Roommates must qualify individually as if they were to reside alone in the property.  
  2. Rental History. You must have satisfactory unbiased rental references from at least two years immediately preceding the date of your application. It is your responsibility to provide completed RENTAL HISTORY VERIFICATION FORMs from current/past landlords. We reserve the right to deny your application if, after making a good faith effort, we are unable to verify your rental history. Homeowners must show timely mortgage payment history, verification of proper maintenance and proof of ownership. If you have ever been evicted or sued for any lease violation, we will reject your application. Your application will be turned down if a reference landlord reports significant complaint levels of noncompliance.  
  3. Credit History. Your credit record must currently be satisfactory. Past Bankruptcies do not automatically reject your application, but a current Open Bankruptcy will. If your credit history shows nonpayment of any rents or leasehold obligations, we will reject your application.  
  4. Criminal History. If you have ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor that would be considered a serious threat to real property or violence, including manufacture or distribution of controlled substances, we will reject your application. Criminal background checks are conducted as part of the application process.
  5. Guarantors. If you do not meet one or more of the above criteria, you may be able to qualify for the property if you can get a third party to guarantee your lease. The guarantor must pass the same application and screening process that you must pass, except we will deduct the guarantor's own housing costs before applying his or her income to our income standard.
  6. Roommates. Roommates are considered for tenancy. Each roommate, individually and independently as if they were to be the sole occupant of the property, must qualify based on the above criteria. 
  7. Deposit. Advertised deposits are available if you have good credit, required income and acceptable references. ManageCo Property Management reserves the right to require additional deposit or pre-paid last month's rent if one or more of the criteria is not met.
  8. HOUSING SUBSIDIES. ManageCo Property Management welcomes Housing Authority / Section 8 contracts.  
  9. FALSE INFORMATION IS GROUNDS FOR DENIAL. You will be denied rental if you misrepresent any information on the application. If misrepresentations are found after the rental/lease agreement is signed, your rental/lease agreement may be terminated.
