Application Instructions and Policies

Thank you for your interest in a rental property. Below, you will find the instructions and criteria required for applying for a property managed by PPM. It is important that you read the information below prior to making an application to understand what is required for renting the property. If you have further questions, visit our website at or contact us at (707) 444-3835.


  • To apply, go to our website at, click FOR RENT, choose a property, and click APPLY NOW.

  • It is a requirement that each applicant, 18 years of age or older, must fill out a separate application.

  • It is required that the entire application is completed. Failure to supply information can mean denial of the application.

  • PPM accepts only signed applications.

  • PPM processes applications after receipt. Selection is not a first-come, first-served process.

  • Due to a high volume of submitted applications, there may be a delay in processing. We have several qualified applicants for all properties. The first qualified, completed applicant for each specific unit is reviewed by management at PPM/RPMH.

  • When submitting an application, applicants must upload verifiable photo identification such as drivers’ license, military ID, state ID, or passport. Identification from merchant stores is not acceptable.

  • Submitting an Application online is the easiest way to apply and will accelerate getting your application processed.

The Application/Processing Fee

  • A $42.00 application fee is required per application, without exception, and is non-refundable.

  • Every individual over 18 must fill out a separate application.

  • This fee is to cover the costs incurred while processing the application.

Basic Criteria

  • Valid ID required.

  • You will need to submit proof of local employment income (current pay stubs from last two pay periods, tax returns, etc.) showing all adults combined monthly income totals at least 3x/monthly rent.

  • you will need to provide 3 years of accurate landlord references (note: per FACTA Identity Theft regulations, we report false landlord references to credit bureaus and local law authorities)

  • if you have pets, a digital photo of you with your pet(s) must be submitted. You may send photos to or upload them in your application

  • The general criteria proves the ability to support the rental income and care for the property. Negative findings on one or more of the three areas can cause denial of an application: false documentation is immediate grounds for denial of an application.


  • All applicants are required to supply reasonable, reliable, and legal documentation on all income; all documentation on income is required upon submitting an application.

  • Examples of income are employee records, current pay stubs are preferred, letter of intent to hire, 1099 profit and loss statement, social security documentation, monthly stipends, trust funds, bank statements that feature your name and regular deposits and other sources that will reflect the ability to make monthly rental payments.

  • PPM must be able to verify all income sources, and reserves the right to disqualify applicants for failure to prove income, supply adequate documentation, or prove the ability to support rental payments.


  • PPM obtains a credit report for all applicants, and does not accept copies of credit reports from applicants, no exceptions.

  • PPM accepts discharged bankruptcies, if the prospective tenant has re-established good credit.

  • Credit scores under 550 will be grounds for denial of an application.

Rental History or Property Ownership

  • PPM requires a minimum of two (2) years of rental history, and/or homeownership, unless a co-signer is accepted or mitigating circumstances are proven.

  • All references must be verifiable and family references are not accepted.

  • Negative references can be grounds for denial of an application.


  • Cosigners fill out the same application that would be filled out for tenancy and pay the $42 fee to be thoroughly processed to qualify as a cosigner for the property.

  • Cosigners will then be sent a Cosigner agreement to be completed upon the prospective tenant being approved for a property.

  • Having a qualified cosigner does not guarantee an applicant will be selected for approval.


  • PPM notifies applicants of acceptance or denial within 3-5 business days of application, unless PPM cannot complete verifications. If more documentation is required, PPM will notify the applicant.

  • All applicants applying together must qualify; denial of one applicant results in the denial of all applicants.

  • Giving false information is automatic grounds for denial.
