When you make application for one of our rental properties at Dixon Preserve, we review your application for truthfulness, completeness, and qualifications. Qualifications are based on our Resident Selection Criteria. We do not approve applications on a “first-come-first-serve basis, but rather on the qualifications of all applicants. We rely on the background checks and personal information you provide to us in your application. If applicant claims that information contained in a background check is inaccurate, it is the applicant’s responsibility to correct information reflected in a background check. All adult applicants must pay submit a completed application and pay the non-refundable application fee.


All adult applicants 18 or older (except for legal dependents) must submit a fully completed, dated and signed residency application and fee.


Applicant must provide proof of identity through government-issued identification (e.g. driver license). If the applicant is in the military, applicant agrees to provide us with a copy of military identification. Applicant must provide us with a “selfie” so we can match identity with the application information.


Applicant may be required to be approved by a condo or homeowner’s association and may have to pay an additional application fee or an additional security or damage deposit, and we are not liable for any delays in the association’s interview or approval process.

Income – Employment

Applicants must provide proof of employment and income in the form of employment records (e.g. paystubs) and must have a combined gross income of at least 2.5 times the monthly rent, unless the applicants are roommates, in which case we may require that each applicant qualify independently of the other applicants. We reserve the right to deny application to “roommate applicants”. If the applicant can pay rent in advance, we may consider this in determining qualification, and applicant must show proof and affirm willingness to pay advanced rent. Please note: letters of new employment from an employer may not necessarily be considered as proof of income.

Income – Self-Employment

Self-employed applicants must provide verified proof personal income, including IRS tax returns or 1099s. Applicant must show stable employment and sufficient income for at least one (1) year prior to application. All sources of other income must be verified if needed to qualify for a rental unit.

Rental History

A minimum of two (2) years residential rental or home-ownership history is required. Previous rental or home-ownership history must reflect timely rent and mortgage payments, sufficient notice of intent to vacate, no complaints regarding noise, disturbances, no unpaid NSF checks, and no damage to unit or failure to leave the property clean and without damage at time of lease termination. Note: if a prior landlord cannot be reached to verify rental history, this may negatively affect your application.

Applicant must not be or have been subject to a Risk Protection Order or Injunction Against Violence. Applicant must not have any charges, adjudications, or convictions for any forceable, violent or sexual offense, fraud, property damage, or similar offenses. Any criminal history that suggests that an applicant’s tenancy may constitute a threat to the health or safety of other persons or animals or whose tenancy could result in damage to the property of the landlord or others will result in denial of the application.
