The full screening criteria for our managed properties is posted at the Fox Management Inc. website, and we recommend careful review of all criteria to ensure a successful application. Our $45 application fee is non-refundable, even in cases where the application is denied or the prospective tenant decides not to rent from us.
Fox Management Inc. applicants should be aware that basic requirements include verified monthly household income of at least three times the stated monthly rent, or a qualified roommate or cosigner.

Excellent credit is also required, with no bad debts in excess of $100 reported from credit agencies.
