It should be kept in mind that all applicants and adult occupants will be asked on the Rental Application or on the Additional Occupancy Application form (as may be applicable) whether they have convicted or subject to deferred adjudication for any of the offenses listed above. If they have, they will not be eligible for rental under these criteria. If a person indicated that they have not been convicted or been subject to deferred adjudication for any of the foregoing crimes, and it is later found out from any available source that the person has submitted false information on the application, such response will be deemed a violation of the Apartment Lease Contract.
