Ready to apply for a California Leasing rental property?
We have streamlined the process to facilitate providing quality rental properties to qualified applicants as quickly as possible. In order to achieve this, we ask that you submit fully completed applications and provide all of the required documentation and information as accurately as possible.
The process is described below:
1. Each person over 18 intending to occupy the property must provide a completed application and pay the $40 application fee. Each person will have a credit check, a nationwide eviction search, and a nationwide criminal database performed. Unfortunately, there is no exception to this.
2. Each person intending to use their income to qualify must provide the two most recent months of income verification. Paystubs, personal bank statements (not business bank statements), etc. In some cases, tax returns may be used.
3. Each person applying must provide a legible, clear copy of picture I.D.
4. Once everything is received for everyone in the party applying and the required application fees
have been paid, we will begin processing the applications in the order in which they are received. (Incomplete applications will not be processed)
5. Completed applications will be presented to the owner of the property for final approval.
6. Once a final approval is received, applicant will have 24 hours to remit security deposit payment in the form of certified funds.
7. Once the deposit is received, the lease will be sent via docusign for execution. Approved applicants will
have 48 hours to execute the lease or it may be canceled.
Qualifications for All California Leasing Rental Properties:
- Credit score must be 581 or higher on our credit report to use that applicants income to qualify. (A credit score of under 581 will disqualify that applicant from using their income to qualify)
- Occupancy is limited to 2 people per bedroom.
- Security deposit is based on the applicant with the highest credit score who earns at least
50% of the required income.
- Security Deposit. A credit score of 581-650 requires 1.5 times the monthly rent in security.

order to secure the property.

For rent amounts of $2000 and up, income must be at least 2.75 times the rent amount.
- Pets, if approved by the owner, will result in a base rent increase of $25 per month, per pet. Certain breeds are not allowed due to limitations in liability insurance.
