Beacon Hill Apartment Application Process
First you need to know your personnel information such as Social Security Number, Emergency contact name and phone number, job information with salary ect.
1. Fill Out a Boston Rental Application (Usually from Greater Real Estate Board
After selecting a Boston apartment, you are going to have to fill out an apartment rental application. Your application will include much of the information we listed above, so if you’ve gathered it all beforehand you should be able to fill out the application quickly.
2. Provide Proof of Income
You’ll need to show proof of income. Your potential landlord will want assurance that you can pay for the Boston apartment rent in full promptly every month
You may have to demonstrate that your verifiable monthly income is at least 3x the monthly rent. You can use pay stubs and bank statements to prove your income. If you are moving to a new city for a new job and don’t have paystubs yet, you can use your offer letter for your proof of income.
Typically, landlords ask to provide 2 or 3 of your most recent pay stubs.
If you’re a college student your parents will need to fill out a Rental Application as well as you
3. Approve a Credit Check
The Boston real estate agent or the property management company or landlord will require you to authorize a credit check for them to proceed with your rental application.
They conduct a credit score check to make sure that you are a financially responsible person. A landlord may see a low credit score as an implication of poor dependability. Typically, ~600 is the minimum credit score needed to rent a Boston apartment.
Make sure you don’t have open bankruptcy cases on your file, as this too can lower your chances of success in getting the rental property you’ve applied for. In case this applies to you, consider finding a cosigner or talk to your roommate about using their credit score.
4. Approve a Background Check
The Boston real estate agent or landlord will conduct a background check for the same reason as a credit check. They want to know how dependable you are. Previous convictions or pending charges may interfere with your ability to get ahold of the apartment you’re after. If you have anything in your past that may raise questions, you might want to explain ahead of time.
5. Find a Cosigner (If Needed)
In case your credit score or income is not high enough for you to secure the Boston apartment, consider asking a trusted person to be your cosigner. A cosigner is someone who signs the lease with you and agrees to pay your rent and fees in case you fail to do so. Having a cosigner is a legal way to increase your landlord’s trust in you.
6. Provide Past Landlords and Personal References
You may need to provide proof of good standing with your previous landlords. This is especially true if you have low credit, an issue with your background check, or limited rental history.
Don’t fret if you can’t get in touch with your prior landlords, because personal references can also be helpful. It would be best to provide recommendations from people other than your family members. Try asking your employers, professors, or fellow volunteers for letters that describe your work ethic and other important character traits.
7. Pay a Security Deposit
Once you’ve been approved for the apartment, your road to a new home is just beginning. Paying a security deposit usually comes next. Prepare to pay between 1-3 month’s rent for your deposit. Take great care of your apartment and you’ll get your security deposit refunded when moving out.
8. Be Prepared to Wait
So how long does it take to get approved for a Boston apartment? Typically, the waiting time for an apartment application approval is 24 to 72 hours. In some cases, you can be approved the same day you applied.
Keep in mind, at the end of the day it will depend on the individual landlord or property management company.
Make sure to ask this question before submitting your application, especially if you are in a hurry to move out of your current apartment.
You can try to speed things up by providing copies of your credit report and rental reference letters from your employer and previous landlords.
