• At minimum, 2 months’ worth of consecutive paystubs. Pay dates must have occurred within the last 90 days.
• Letter from Employer may be used if an applicant will be a new employee. The tenant will be required to follow up with the next two months’ worth of pay stubs. If pay stubs reflect tenant is over income, then that unit is no longer considered an affordable unit.
