Screening Criteria

Kinnery Screening Criteria

Screening criteria
As a management company we screen tenants the same way tenants screen prospective units, with optimism! We trust that every application submitted has been drafted with honesty and integrity. We do, however, pay close attention to the old adage “Trust but Verify” this is not necessarily our motto, but verification, and crossing our t’s and dotting our I’s, is what keeps us in good stead with the landlord, therefore, keeping us in business. If you have any questions or concerns filling out the application, please feel free to give any member at Kinnery’s a call, we’re all here to help.

Requirements to rent:

  • All applicants 18 years of age and older must complete an application form. Every occupant must be listed on the lease.
