Three16 uses a third party screening service to process our applications. This service provides a score between 1 and 10 to each applicant based on the following information: credit history, background/criminal history, previous residence history, and gross income. Our applicants must receive a score of at least 5.5 to be approved. Note: Some properties require a specific score to qualify for the advertised security deposit/administrative fee and any advertised specials. If you do not meet that specific score, but do receive a score of 5.5 or higher, you can be approved with a modified security deposit/administrative fee. Example: your property requires a screening score of 7 to move in with a $200 security deposit. If your score is 5.5, you will still be approved to move in but will be required to pay a full month’s rent for a security deposit.


  • We will not approve anyone who does not meet the income qualification of 3.2 times the monthly rent of the residence in gross monthly income.
  • We will not approve anyone who is a registered sex offender or has a drug/violence related criminal conviction.
