Austin Rentals: General Rental Information
Qualifying For Austin Rentals:
Qualifying can vary greatly from one landlord to the next. It has become common place for a landlord to require a credit check on any applicant over the age of 18. Credit issues can be cause for rejection of an application or result in the landlord asking for a higher deposit. Most apartment communities, property managers & landlords require that your gross monthly income be three to four times the monthly rent. An application fee is charged the tenant when they apply to rent a unit. Application fees can vary from thirty-five to seventy-five dollars per person. Also, most landlords require two years of verifiable rental history and verifiable income/employment history.
Deposits usually equal 60 - 100 % of one month's rent. Deposits are usually due at the time of application. Some companies or landlords may take a personal check, but most require certified funds to process an application, i.e. money order or cashier's check. Some apartments may require a portion of the deposit to be non-refundable. Application fees are non-refundable. Deposits will be refunded if your application is not accepted.
