Occupancy Guidelines

The maximum occupancy per home is two individuals per bedroom, plus one additional person. For example, a one-bedroom home may accommodate a maximum of three residents, and a two-bedroom home may accommodate a maximum of five residents. Any residents exceeding these occupancy standards during their lease term will be required, at the end of the current lease term, to either:

  • Move to another available property managed by Stay Awhile Hosting Co. with more bedrooms; or
  • Move out.

Please note that these occupancy guidelines do not apply to children under one year old.

Contact Stay Awhile Hosting Co. for further details, as Occupancy Guidelines are subject to local laws.

Application

All individuals 18 years of age or older residing in the home must complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a completed application via Zillow.
  2. Undergo the applicable screening process.
  3. Provide necessary documentation, including a valid government-issued photo ID
  4. Pay a $35 non-refundable application fee directly to Zillow.
  5. These requirements must also be completed by any resident 18 years of age or older added to the household during the lease term.

All applications are reviewed based on established screening criteria, using the services of Zillow, a third-party screening provider, for credit and criminal background checks. You can obtain a copy of the screening report by contacting Zillow directly.

Income

  • All leaseholders are required to provide evidence of a combined gross monthly income of 2.5 times the monthly rent.
  • Income verification is required for all applications. Stay Awhile Hosting Co. uses third-party income verification provider Zillow to seamlessly verify your income. It is possible that we may need to connect with your employer directly.

Credit Report

During the application process, a credit report will be obtained for all leaseholder applicants to verify credit history and credit score. Credit report results, in addition to applicant’s income, will collectively determine rental eligibility.

Factors that can negatively affect rental eligibility per the results of a credit report include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Credit history
  • High debt load
  • Payment behavior
  • Collection accounts
  • Prior Landlord/Tenant evictions
  • Delinquencies

Criminal History

A criminal background check will be completed for each applicant and occupant 18 years of age or older. All criminal records are evaluated from the date of disposition, regardless of the applicant’s or occupant’s age at the time such offense was committed. The application will be denied for the following:

  • Certain felony convictions up to seven years prior to the application date, subject to applicable law.
  • Certain misdemeanors up to three years prior to the application date, subject to applicable law.
  • Felony convictions for any sex-related offenses, regardless of conviction date.
  • Any individual on the OFAC’s SDN list.

These requirements do not guarantee that residents or occupants currently residing in our homes have not been convicted of, or subject to, deferred adjudication for a felony, misdemeanor, or sex offense requiring registration under applicable law. Our ability to verify this information is limited to the information made available to us by the applicant and third-party screening service.
