As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act we stand committed against housing discrimination.

Before filling out a RENTAL APPLICATION, please review our list of criteria below. 

  1. A completed and signed application from all proposed occupants over the age of 18 must be submitted.  All lines must be filled-in. Your full SSN# must be included.  Incorrect information will disqualify you as a prospective renter.

  2. You must have no evictions on your credit report.

  3. We DO NOT accept applications for Section-8 or any other government housing assistance programs at this time.

  4. Pets are NOT allowed in any of our multi-unit properties.  We cannot accept tenants with high-risk dog breeds per our liability insurance policy.

  5. A ($25) screening fee is required for each applicant for the purpose of ordering a credit and eviction report.  The fee is payable in cash, cashier’s check or money order made out to 'Oaktown Properties'.  No application will be processed prior to payment of application fee.

  6. Your credit report should demonstrate a willingness to pay financial obligations in a timely fashion.  We require a 650 minimum FICO score.

Rental History must be verifiable from unbiased sources.  Only provide to us contact information for independent landlords who are neither your room mates nor related to you in any way.   If your rental history does not include at least two previous landlords, your application may be declined.
