How to Apply for an Apartment


How to Apply for an Apartment. You've found a great apartment complex or building and are ready to move forward. Here's how to apply for the apartment you want.

Things You'll Need

  • Financial Calculator
  • Rental Applications
  • Notebooks
  • Personal Organizers
  • Writing Pens

Ask for an application for the actual apartment you will be renting (not a model).

Fill it out according to the instructions given.

Offer a reasonable deposit on your application - around $50 to $75, with the rest of the total due at the time you sign the lease.

Wait for your application to be approved. Don't sign any other applications in the meantime.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make copies of all documents.
  • Look around before you fill out an application. Avoid taking the first place you see, and don't take a place if you have any doubts.
  • A small fee (around $30 or so) may be requested to do a credit check. Beware if it is much more.
  • Do not put a stop-payment on the application deposit check unless you can prove fraud or have agreed in writing with the agent to cancel.
  • Never pay with cash.
