LANDLORD REFERENCES FAQ:s.sdcpm.com/landlord



1: I am or was the property owner for part or all of the last three years, so did not have a landlord then:         What do I need to do?
    Nothing. If we need supporting documents we will let you know.
    
2: I have been living with a relative or friend during some of the last 3 years. Can I still apply?
    YES, but if the average time of all co-applicants  living with relative or friend are over 18 months and any one's FICO (Transunion) score is below 725 then you will need to get a guarantor (cosigner)  who has FICO (Transunion) score of 725+ and whose income is at least three times the rent.
AND for units that require a 650 credit score your security deposit will be twice the amount of the monthly rent. After 12 months of consecutive on time payments you will receive a credit of one month's rent, to reduce the security deposit by that amount.
