Texas Resident Qualifications

Thank you for showing interest in renting a home with On Q Property Management. Be sure to review the property listing, our Rental Qualifications, and Sample Lease (available upon request) to understand all requirements, terms and conditions prior to completing the application process. 

The application fee is $55.00 for each applicant, co-applicant, and guarantor (when applicable). Each occupant that is 18 years of age or older must complete the application. Once you’ve submitted your application, the credit and background screening are instantly started, therefore your Application Fee is Non-Refundable. Occupancy is limited to the persons listed on the application and if any unauthorized Tenants or Pets are living at the property, it is a material violation of the lease agreement. 


On Q Property Management does business in accordance with Federal and State Fair Housing Laws and welcome Persons of all Race, Color, Ethnicity, Age, Ancestry, Disability, Handicap, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Gender, Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Genetic Information, Marital Status, Familial Status, Veteran Status, and National Origin. 


It is common to have more than one application for a property and multiple applications may be reviewed when choosing an applicant. On Q Property Management reserves the right to consider applications up to 2 business days after the first application is received and will choose the applicant based on qualifications and terms. We process all applications using a scoring matrix and select the most qualified tenant based on that criteria. It is ideal to have a lease start date as close to the property availability date as possible and will be considered when choosing an applicant. The property listing and all marketing will remain active and we will continue to consider applications until there is an approved applicant who has paid the Holding Retainer. If an application is not selected for the property that they are applying for, the Applicant will still be qualified for another On Q managed property of a similar price range, with no additional application fees valid up to 6 months from the initial approval date. Your application is not guaranteed to be approved and the application fee will not be refunded under any circumstances.


Cosigners will be considered in some situations. Co-Signers must complete an application, have a 700+ FICO score and provide proof of 4 times the rent as income by themselves. An applicant that qualifies without a cosigner is seen as a stronger applicant and may be chosen over an applicant who uses a cosigner.


Once an application is submitted and all information has been turned in, it may take up to 2 business days to process, verify the information and complete background checks. In addition to the rental application, you will also be required to provide a copy of a valid form of identification, proof of employment and income, and rental or residency references. Applications cannot be considered until all necessary information and documentation has been received.

Properties are rented in the Current Condition ‘as-is’ at the time of viewing. All Parties agree that Applicants are encouraged to view and inspect the Property prior to applying.
