You found a Beacon Hill apartment that checks off all the necessary points on your apartment tour checklist. In other words, you fell in love with the place! Now it’s time to tackle the apartment application process, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. Below is everything you need to know about Beacon Hill apartment rental applications.
Almost all Beacon Hill rental apartments require you to submit a rental application. You can complete the form at the Beacon Hill real estate office or pick one up and complete it later. Bottom line, fill it out as soon as you can, to make sure you hold the apartment.
There is a lot of information you need to collect for your apartment rental application. Plus the process has several steps. You will need to put one months fee down and allow your potential landlord to run a background and credit check, and provide evidence of your rental history. We’ve outlined below all the information you will likely need to provide, as well as what to expect from the application process. Read on, so you are prepared to apply as soon as you find the apartment you love.
- Your personal contact information: The landlord will need to communicate with you, so make sure you are responsive and provide the easiest way to reach you, be it your phone number, email, or another method.
- Your social security number: Usually you will need to provide your social security number. The landlord may also ask for a copy of your social security card. This information is necessary for a background check.
- Current and previous address/rental information: This information is also needed for your background check. In addition, the landlord may want to check in with your previous landlords for referrals.
- Current and previous employment information: Again, this information is necessary for your criminal background check. Note your occupation, company name, and phone number in the paperwork so that your landlord may verify your employment.
- Proof of income: Pay stubs, tax returns, or some other proof of income is going to be required for your application.
- Past landlords and personal references: A potential landlord will likely want to speak with your previous landlords to verify your rental history and demeanor as a tenant. They may also ask for personal references, such as your boss, to confirm your employment and character.
- Emergency contact: In case the landlord is unable to reach you or a medical emergency takes place, they may need to contact someone close to you, so choose wisely.
- Cosigner application: If you are unemployed or a student you need to have a cosigner, make sure that they fill out their part of the application, too.
- Any additional documents the landlord may request: Landlords may want to see some additional paperwork. Check with the leasing office early to know what else you need to complete your apartment application. For example, if you have a pet, you might want to provide a pet resume to predispose your potential landlord to your best bud.
