HOW TO APPLY FOR A Downtown Boston Apartment & SIGNING YOUR LEASE

Applying for a apartment in Beacon Hill or anywhere in downtown Boston and the surrounding area is not as easy as it is in many areas of the country. Owners and property managers are usually much more strict in their financial requirements, and the amount of documents that must be submitted along with your application 
Below is a guide to make sure you are as prepared as you can be, and to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

BE PREPARED TO SIGN AND SECURE YOUR APARTMENT–TODAY

There mat appear to be many apartments in downtown Boston, but they can go fast. A common “rookie” mistake when hunting for apartments especially in Beacon Hill is not being ready to sign on the spot, and watching someone else grab your dream home. At certain times of the year (especially during the prime rental months of May through September) many apartments will rent in a matter of days.

HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I NEED TO SECURE AN APARTMENT IN NEW YORK CITY?

Make sure you have enough money in your checking account to sign that day. Don’t be caught short if you find the perfect Boston downtown apartment and the landlord is ready to approve you right away. Basically, the landlord wants to know you’re serious about renting the apartment, and not out applying for multiple apartments at the same time. If you are approved and sign a lease, the deposit is usually applied to your first month’s rent. If you are denied, the deposit is returned to you. If you are approved and decide not to sign a lease, you forfeit the deposit

APPLYING–AND GETTING APPROVED–FOR AN APARTMENT IN DOWNTOWN BOSTON

Apartment lease agreements usually aren’t terribly complicated, but if you see a home that you love while looking for an apartment in Beacon Hill, you should be ready to apply on the spot. The apartment’s landlord or management company will supply the application itself—it’s usually a fairly simple form, and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to fill out

Once you’re done with the rental lease agreement application, and have handed over all of your paperwork, the landlord or management company will run a credit report on you (at your expense), and let you know if you’ve been approved, usually within a few days. Rarely will they let you know on the spot. Some owners and property managers may also run a background check.
This was just a brief outline on what to expect. if you have any specific questions please call John Ford at 617-595-3712
