Rental Application Instructions

Please read the following in order to speed up the processing:

  1. Complete all pages of the NVAR/MAR rental application for each adult who will live in the home. We can email you an application upon request. Be sure to confirm the property is still available before applying. If you have an agent, he or she can confirm this for you. An application is complete when it includes:

    1. Offer of terms (address applying for, occupancy date, lease length & amount of rent).

    2. Full legal name (incl. maiden name) & address of each applicant and tenant (including minors)

    3. Date of birth & Social Security Number or Individual Tax ID for each applicant.

    4. Current landlord name & daytime telephone number.

    5. Former landlord name, daytime number, and property address.

    6. Employer/ Payroll dept. name & telephone number – note: if your employer uses ‘The Work Number’ or a system that charges for verification, you must provide an alternate employment verification; this could include: paystubs from the last 2 pay periods, most recent W-2, or an acceptance letter if this is a new job. Self-employed must include the last 2 yrs. Federal 1040 & schedule C forms.

    7. Signature of each adult on the second page of the application.

  1. Submit the application with 2 checks made out to Wilkinson PM ; one for $40 for each adult (over age 18), and one for the earnest money deposit of one month’s rent (not cashed until the application is approved at which point it becomes the security deposit).

  1. The 1st month’s rent and pet deposit will be collected on the day the lease begins in exchange for the key to the home. Certified funds are required for the first month’s rent or whenever there are less than 10 business days for a personal check to clear; after the first month’s rent, a personal check will be allowed in accordance with the lease.

The processing of the application will take a minimum of 2 business days to complete. The processing time can be reduced by attaching copies of paystubs, W-2’s, and employment offer letters, as well as correct phone numbers and contact information. We will not start processing without a fully complete application, with the application fee, plus the Earnest Money funds. *Online application and payment is available through your agent or our listing agent.

Important: HomeFirst Realty and Wilkinson PM agents represent our landlord clients, if you do not have a real estate agent representing you then you are “unrepresented” or self-represented. Applications are not processed until we receive a fully completed and signed application, along with the Deposit (one month’s rent) and application fees for each adult applying.
