Fore Property requires all applicants to meet the following criteria in order to qualify for housing.

Applicant and all proposed occupants acknowledge and consent to the performance of a criminal record screening check by TransUnion, where permitted by applicable law. Additionally, and where permitted by applicable law, Applicant and proposed occupants may have certain obligations to disclose the existence of specific criminal records when completing an application.

screening is required, the purpose of Same is to determine whether applicant or proposed occupant(s) have a criminal record of “conviction.” This screening will be conducted upon Fore Property’s receipt of a completed application and payment of an appropriate screening fee. Screening will include a search of available public records and disseminated by Courts of Origin or via other reporting agencies. Any criminal records of conviction discovered during screening or via disclosure on an application will be evaluated in accordance with Fore Property’s existing “Criminal Record Screening Policy” before determining tenancy approval. Please note: the existence of a criminal record of conviction will not automatically result in a denial of tenancy; a denial, whether permanent or limited in time, may occur if a criminal record of conviction is deemed to be in noncompliance with Fore Property’s existing “Criminal Record Screening Policy.”
