Prospective Tenants: Qualifications

Employment and Income

You must have verifiable gross monthly income of at least 3 times the monthly rent. Family members and married couples combine their incomes. All non-related applicants must qualify separately. Self employed applicants are required to supply the last two years tax returns plus bank statement to assist in verifying the stated income.

Background and Credit History

We conduct through credit and background checks as a way to confirm an applicant is satisfactorily suited to lease with Sonoran Sky Realty. If you have issues with your credit or criminal history, please let the Property Manager know at the time of application. You may be rejected if there are issues with your credit or background.

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.


All assistive animals are accepted (with documentation). A suggested pet deposit of $150.00 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 Doberman Pinchers, German Shepherd and Rottweiler breeds may not be considered without substantial liability insurance and deposits as most homeowner’s insurance exclude these breeds. A Landlord may make an exception to our policy.

Renter’s Insurance

It is recommended that our tenants obtain personal property insurance as Landlord policies do not cover tenant property losses or damage.

Security Deposit

We require one month’s rent as your security deposit on or before your move-in date. 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.
