Rental Qualifications

Employment and Income:

You must provide verifiable gross monthly income of at least 3 times the monthly rent. Family members and married couples may combine their incomes. All non-related applicants must qualify separately. Self employed applicants are required to supply the last two years tax returns…we may also require bank statements to assist in substantiating your stated income.

Background and Credit History:

We conduct thorough credit and background checks as a way to confirm an applicant is satisfactorily suited to lease with The Nordstrom Group, Inc. An application fee of $50 per adult is used for this purpose. If you have delinquent debt or criminal history, please own up to it at the time of application. All adult applicants 18 years of age and older must go through our qualifying process.

Security Deposits:

We require one month’s rent plus $245 as your security deposit on or before your move-in date (i.e. if the monthly rent is $1,000, the security deposit will be $1,245). Security deposits are 100% refundable as long as the rental property is returned to us without damage, in the same condition it was rented, and does not require additional cleaning to meet our standards.


All assistive animals accepted. A suggested pet deposit is $150 per acceptable pet. All other pet considerations vary and are subject to Landlord approval. Breed, size, age, and other pet information will be considered in determining deposits and acceptance. Pit Bulls, Chows, German Shepherds, Doberman Pinchers and Rotweiller breeds may not be considered without substantial liability insurance and deposits as most homeowner insurance policies exclude these breeds. Pets must be at least one year old. No reptiles, rodents or large birds are recommended to our landlords by our company. A landlord may make an exception to our policy.

Rental History:

We contact your previous Landlords to check on your rental payment history. We will ask about the number of late payments, non-compliance notices, and how you maintained and returned the property.

Renters Insurance:

Our lease requires that tenants obtain liability insurance. It is also recommended that our tenants obtain personal property insurance as Landlord policies do not cover tenant property losses or damages.
