What is a guarantor? Do I need to provide one before I can move-in?

A guarantor is someone over the age of 27 that makes at least three times the monthly rent and has no items in collections. Similar to a financial co-signer, they are equally responsible for the lease agreement and will be for the duration of the lease. At Seminole Grand we offer residents the option of providing a guarantor or a security deposit equal to $1,000. In order to move-in, each resident must provide either an approved guarantor or a security deposit.
 

What is an RV Index?

 
The RV Index is a risk score based on a number of factors is an innovative move in qualifying criteria. This index will be used to screen and qualify applicants and guarantors.  By using this inclusive index opposed to our prior practice, we take a step toward future industry standards of fair practice. Depending on your property, an RV index of 40 or 50 will need to be achieved.  Instead of just credit score and income, the index takes a look at a number of factors such as:
1. Payment history on all trade lines
2. Ratio of rent to income
3. Ratio of debt to income
4. Collections
5. Ratio of positive to negative credit lines
