Jenny asks…

what are Income Guide lines when renting an apartment?

How much would one have to make? (portland)

Administrator answers:

I worked for a letting agent in the UK, and it went as follows: a single applicant needs to earn 2.5 times the annual rental figure, so, for a rent of £500, an applicant would need to earn £15000. BUT, you can still rent the apartment for £500 if you earn 1.5 times the rent, (£9000) IF you have a guarantor (someone who agrees to pay your shortfall in rent should you not meet the monthly payments). The guarantor needs to earn 3 times the annual rent, so they need to earn at least £18000 to be your guarantor.

You need to consider other expenses, and your guarnator will be equally responsible for your tenancy, and your obligations as a tenant become theirs, should ther be a breach of tenancy.

This is in the UK, so not sure if it is relevant, but it is of course, only a guideline.

Administrator answers:

ADA says that a service animal is NOT a pet. Therefore, none of the pet policies apply.

The apartment community will need documentation from his health care provider stating the need for a service animal and/or a REQUEST FOR ACCOMODATION UNDER THE ADA. This form should be completed by the health care provider and submitted to the apartment community. Await written approval from the apartment community.

Hopefully this helps for the pet policy part of your question.
