Do I Qualify?

Below are PPL’s general rental criteria. Do you have:

TWO YEARS OF GOOD RENTAL HISTORY?

  • No unlawful detainers (evictions) less than 2 years old, unless you have verifiable documentation of landlord irresponsibility.
  • No history of any damage to the apartment.
  • No outstanding balance due to a previous landlord.
  • If you have no prior rental history then you must have a qualified cosigner. The cosigner must be a resident of Minnesota, have a good credit history, and be willing to sign the lease.

VERIFIABLE GROSS INCOME?

  • Required minimum monthly income of twice the rent charged on the apartment (ex. $650 apartment requires $1,300 monthly income).
  • Section 8 vouchers and certificates accepted. The resident must meet the same criteria as those seeking non-subsidized housing.

A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND?

GOOD CREDIT HISTORY?

  • Must show that you have paid bills on time and does not have a history of debt write-offs or accounts that have gone into collection.
  • Residency may be denied due to poor credit history.
