Tenant Qualifications

Welcome to Desert Masters Realty! We are professional property managers that follow local, state, and federal fair housing regulations and the Arizona Landlord / Tenant laws.

Finding a rental home can be stressful and overwhelming but we do our best to make the process as easy and worry-free as possible. It can help to understand the rental qualifications before you browse our available rentals.

  1. Follow the Rental Application Instructions – The ability to follow our step-by-step instructions will give you an advantage over those who do not. Applicants who skip one or more steps have not completed the entire process, which causes a delay in the approval process.
  2. Credit History – Not all delinquent accounts count against you, but there is a risk assessment that will focus on your ability to pay rent in a timely manner. Bankruptcies and Foreclosures are OK as long as the bankruptcy has been discharged and your rent is less than your current mortgage payment.
  3. Work History – The summation of all applicants’ gross monthly income must be at least three times the monthly rent. Applicants must have proof of income, such as pay stubs, tax returns, and/or hire letters that display income.
  4. Rental History – We do not accept applicants who have been evicted or broken a lease within the past 3 years. Returned checks and HOA violations or warnings will also be considered when assessing rental history.
  5. Criminal History – We will review a criminal report in conjunction with the credit report. This will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
  6. Pet Policy – No dangerous breed pets allowed.
