Are you being asked to be a Co-signer for an Applicant?
The requirement of a co-signer is at the discretion of the Property Manager after reviewing the prospective tenant’s rental application. The applicant is contacted by the Front Desk and instructions are emailed to the applicant which should be forwarded to the Co-signer.
The following steps will help walk you through this process. Time is of the essence and documents are due within 24 hours of notification to the applicant.
Step 1: Co-Signer Application and Co-Signer Agreement
The Co-Signer Application has been sent as a link in the email instructions to the applicant. The Co-Signer Application can be completed online or the form can be downloaded and printed from our website at www.son-rise.net. Click on “Tenants” -> “Applicants” and the required forms are listed. Complete and sign the Co-Signer Application and print and sign the Co-signer Agreement.
Step 2: Consumer Authorization of Release
Click on “Tenants” -> “Applicants” and the required forms are listed. Download, print, and sign the Consumer Authorization of Release. This form is necessary for credit and background screening.
Step 3: $30 Co-Signer Application fee
A non-refundable $30 Co-Signer application fee is required to submit your on-line Co-Signer application. Should you submit your Co-Signer application by email or hand delivery, you will be sent an email which will allow you to pay via Square or you may pay by cashier’s check or money order. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Please call the Front Desk at 360-738-3700 if you have any questions regarding payment.
Step 4: Clear photo ID
Scan or provide a copy of a government issued photo identification. The scan or copy must be clear.
Step 5: Proof of income
Co-signer’s Income must be three times (3xs) the monthly rent. Proof of income may be shown by two most recent pay stubs which show your full name, employer’s name, and the Current and YTD wages, or the first page of the previous year’s tax return, or the previous year’s IRS Form W-2.
Step 6: Submit all required documentation.
Scan or deliver the required documents to our office promptly. Scanned documents can be emailed to [email protected] or delivered to Son-Rise Property Management, 3800 Byron Avenue, Suite 112, Bellingham, WA 98229. As a reminder, Co-Signer documents are required to be submitted within 24 hours after an applicant has been notified of the requirement of a Co-Signer. Failure to provide the Co-Signer documents by the deadline may result in the cancellation of the applicant’s application. You may be contacted to provide follow-up information or documentation and your prompt response is appreciated.
Step 7: Once all the required information is obtained to process your Co-Signer application, a Property Manager will either approve or deny your Co-Signer application. The applicant will be notified of the Property Manager’s decision.
No applicant will be denied residency on the basis of his/her race, sex, religion, marital status, or age.
