Below is a list of the most common customer questions. If you can’t find an answer to your question,
please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Can you withdraw a tenancy application?
You can withdraw your application before approval and still get it back. Before you sign a lease, you're not beholden to that lease. So, yes, you can not accept a rental that you've applied for, even where your application has been accepted.
Can you back out before signing a lease?
If you haven't signed a lease, there is nothing the "back out of". There is no deal until the lease is executed by BOTH parties. You're under no obligation to rent the unit until you sign the lease.
How do I pass a rental application check?

What do landlords look for in a credit check?

How can I get out of a lease after signing?
Once the landlord and tenant sign a lease and a copy is delivered to the both parties, it becomes a valid contract. Contacting the landlord by verbal or written means within three days of signing it will not automatically terminate the contract.
How long after signing a lease can I change my mind?
There is no "cooling off" period for residential releases. In some states, a cooling off period is required for certain contracts, which give signers a window of time, typically one to three days, during which they can void the contract if they change their mind.
How binding is a rental application?
A typical rental application is neither a legally binding document to rent out a dwelling nor should it be considered a contract. The purpose of a rental application is to inform you of important or relevant information that you'll need when deciding which tenant will move into the property.
When should you sign a lease for an apartment?
When Should Landlords Sign a Rental Lease? Landlords should aim to sign a rental lease 30 days before the unit becomes vacant. As a landlord, your goal is to always have tenants in your rental property so you are earning rental income. As soon as tenants move out, you want new tenants moving in.
What is a renters application?
A Residential Rental Application is a form used by landlords to evaluate prospective tenants who are interested in renting a residential living space. The information provided in the rental application can help the landlord when performing reference checks, credit checks, criminal background checks, and more.
What is a leasing application?
A Lease or Rental Application is a form used by Landlords to find responsible renters or tenants. A standard Lease or Rental Application allows Landlords to run a background check and credit check on each person who wants to live on their property.
Can you apply for more than one rental property at a time?
"It is never a good idea to apply for multiple properties at the one time and then withdraw applications after being approved for more than one property. "Alternatively, if you are applying for more than one property with different agencies let them know."
How long does it take for a rental application?
For the most part, applications will take 24 to 72 hours, but check with the landlord or management company for how long it usually takes. It's always a good idea to ask how long you should expect to wait for a reply. Depending on the landlord's situation, you could be approved to rent the same day you applied.
