All Fairfield communities offer in-person, self-guided, virtual and/or 3D tours. Visit your community’s website for more information.
Our self-guided tours allow a prospective resident to do an in-person tour on their own time, without touring with an agent.

In order to begin the leasing process, have the following documents ready:

- Proof of income document (such as current bank statement, w-2 form, pay stubs, receipt of government income, etc.)

Yes, at most of our communities you will need to have proof of renter’s insurance in order to lease your apartment. You will be led through the process of obtaining rental insurance through a provider we partner with during the leasing process if you do not already have it. You can also seek your own insurance provider and upload that document during the leasing process.
Certain communities do not require renter’s insurance. Please check with your specific community to find out more.

This depends on the community you are moving in to. Please contact your community’s leasing office for more information.
Fairfield utilizes ScreeningWorks Pro proprietary credit scoring model developed specifically for predicting renter behavior. Many traditional 3-digit credit scores are designed with other industries in mind, such as mortgage, credit cards, and auto-loans. ScreeningWorks Pro focuses on recent credit problems indicative of future rental behavior whereas credit scores average all good and bad credit together. By focusing on credit problems that indicate future rental behavior, ScreeningWorks Pro can provide a more accurate representation of the applicant level of risk.
Fairfield’s screening models do have a time frame of up to 7 years set in the parameters for evictions, however, it varies depending on the type of screening model. Fairfield understands that special circumstances may exist and therefore, applicants may submit proper documentation to be taken into consideration.
Most Fairfield communities offer a short-term lease option; however, the term limits may vary by community. We recommend you contact the Fairfield community where you would like to live for specific details of their lease term options.
