IF the property allows for pets, Pet Rent and additional Security Deposit will be required.  If you have a Pet or Service Animal there is an additional per pet application which is administered by a third party pet screening tool.

  • If the applicant will be receiving a government rent subsidy to assist the payment of rent, such as a Section 8 voucher, applicant may choose to provide lawful, verifiable, alternative evidence of reasonable ability to pay rather than have the housing provider rely on a credit report. The applicant shall be given a reasonable time to provide alternative documentation.
  • WPPM prides itself in providing equal housing opportunity for all applicants, thus we do not modify our guidelines for any applicant.

I have been a tenant for about 2 years with Windsor Pacific Property Management and had an amazing experience. They are very professional and actually do care about their tenants. Jackelyne Ferreira has always been there for us. If we ever needed something to be fixed at the house she coordinated it efficiently and in timely manner. Renting a place is always challenging but she and the WPPM team made it an easy experience for us. I highly recommend this company as they know what they are doing.
