Information Needed For Housing Applications

Information to have ready for filling out an application

When you find an available unit to rent you will need to move quickly to get your
application in line before others. Gathering the following information and having
it in one place will help speed up the application process.

Here is a list of items commonly requested on rental applications.

  • Full Names, Birthdates, and Social Security Numbers of all household members who will be living in the unit.
  • A list of the three places you have lived, including the property address, phone number and name of the landlord.
  • Names and phone number for three people who know you well and will give you a good reference.
  • If employed, your employer’s name and address, hourly wage, and your average monthly income.
  • A list of all other sources of income for everyone in the household.

Now that you have gathered the information needed to apply, you are ready to look for housing.
