What is the rental application process for new tenants?

We pride ourselves on working diligently to obtain the best qualified tenants for your property. Prospective tenants are required to submit a $75 application fee, along with a Texas Real Estate Commission Rental Application, their photo IDs, and copy of income verification. All future occupants over the age of 18 are required to submit a separate application. Applicants are required to read  our Qualifying Rental Criteria prior to submitting their rental application, and are notified of our rules and regulations, as well as our other policies. A full credit check and criminal back ground is obtained on each applicant, and work history and income is verified by paystubs, taxes, bank statements, and/or tax returns transcripts depending on type of employment. Rental history is verified by doing an eviction search and by contacting previous landlords. This research reveals if they have breached their previous leases and if any damage was done. If the applicant is a homeowner we verify there were no late pays on their mortgage for the past 2 years. If a previous landlord is not a company we cross reference the owners name with tax records and/or require their form to be notarized.
