Additional application requirements for LIVV WELL homes:
 
General Requirements
  • We rent to qualified prospective tenants on a first-come, first-served basis. The first person (or group) who meets all of our eligibility requirements and completes the application and screening process for a vacant home is offered the unit. One benefit of this process is that it eliminates both conscious and unconscious bias from the rental process. We believe that all people seeking to rent a home should have housing opportunity and choice without discrimination or other limitations based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin, creed, sexual or affectional orientation, ancestry, marital status, receipt of public assistance, or age. Learn more about our belief in equal housing here
  • A prospective tenant's place in line is affected by desired move-in date (a qualified applicant who is ready to move in on the first of the following month will be selected before a qualified tenant who is ready to move in two months from now).
  • Your application package will not be submitted for review/approval until all prospective tenants/roommates in your party have completed a walkthrough of the property with a LIVV WELL representative and submitted an application (this can be waived on a case-by-case basis).
  • All prospective tenants over the age of 18 must submit a fully completed application with no material misstatements or omissions.
  • All prospective tenants over the age of 18 must provide LIVV WELL with a photo/copy of a valid government-issued ID.
  • Other information provided by the applicant (anticipated length of tenancy, tenancy commencement date, etc.) will be taken into consideration. 
  • Any offers or proposals an applicant may choose to make (additional rent or deposit, extended lease term, qualified guarantors, qualified co-signers, etc.) will be taken into consideration.
  • LIVV WELL Property Management can only give approved applicants 24 hours to decide if they'd like to move forward in the rental process and secure the home. Prospective tenants who express desire to move forward have an additional 24 hours to submit their security deposit to hold the home. If prospective tenants don't submit a security deposit within 48 hours of being approved, the home is made available to other applicants.
