Generally, there are three areas for qualification: income, background, and credit check. Due to a large student tenant population, Ramshaw Real Estate has separate criteria for our on campus and off campus properties. Regardless of financial ability, all tenants must pass a background check to lease with Ramshaw Real Estate. Students with a valid I-CARD leasing an on-campus property do not need to meet income requirements and are exempt from the $35 application fee. Every person over the age of 18 that will be living in the unit, however, must complete a rental application (found here). Ramshaw Real Estate does not require a parent or guarantor to cosign the lease. Off campus properties, however, require a cumulative monthly income of three times the monthly rent for approval. Off campus applicants must also pass a credit check.
