Hello John

At Springhill, in UK, we never have vetted anyone.  The 2 stipulations are that 
they can afford to buy in (or rent, or lodge), and that they agree to live by 
the principles of cohousing, as expressed in the lease and the tenancy 
agreements.  By and large this has worked.  Our first residents moved in ten 
years ago, and the lack of vetting has had no negative impact on our population.

Best wishes
