Property Rental Requirements
DFWLandlord.com is very excited you may decide to make application to GTF Realty for one of our rental properties. For nearly 30 years our company has been providing excellent management services to prospective residents looking for the very best property management. Please consider the following recommendations in order to get your application approved by the owner.
- Be sure to provide the names and telephone numbers (home & work preferred) of at least the previous two years' worth of rental history from individuals not related to you. Always be sure to include your move-in and move-out dates and the exact apartment number. If you had a roommate on the lease contract, their name would be helpful as a point of reference, as well.
- Your monthly income should be at least 3 to 4 times the rental amount. If you are self-employed please provide your latest tax returns as well as at least 3 months worth of bank statements. Contact of your clients is also helpful.
- Cleared funds of one month's rent are recommended to accompany the application as an application deposit. You could also include any pet deposits ($250 per pet) at this time. Deposit funds must be available and paid upon owner approval of an application, which is usually within 24 hours and lease signing scheduled. If you write a check, be sure to include the telephone number of the bank to verify the funds. A separate money order or check must also be included of $40 (verifiable funds needed with check, app fee non-refundable) per applicant ($80 per couple) as a non-refundable application fee. Only one application fee per lifetime is required to GTF while you live in our rentals. All checks and money orders should be made payable to GTF (Get There First).
- Credit and criminal reports will be obtained and if there are no problems the stated security deposit (usually equal to one month) in the listing is all that is required before the lease is signed. The application deposit will be credited towards the security deposit when the lease is signed. Until that time it is 100% refundable and the property will remain on the market. Any credit or criminal issues may cause a decline of the application or a double or more deposit on the rental. Be prepared for this.
We look forward to the timely approval of your application. Thank you for considering GTF Realty, your BEST choice for property management services.
