Rental Property Application Optioons

1 Reply

Hey BP,

I'm currently showing my first rental property to a prospective tenant. I have decided to charge a $50 Application Fee. 

Two questions:

1) How should I check credit and criminal background (Service or Trusted Website)?

2) What should be included in my application? - Does anyone have a sample that I could use?

Thanks,

Chris Oyenuga

Read the ultimate guides to screening and renting your house stickied at the top of this forum. 

I use TransUnion’s mysmartmove for the background and credit checks. 

The guides above have a free application, BP also has a more detailed application you can buy along with a lease and other docs. Zillow has a free application you can use, cozy.co has an application you can use etc.
