Before you apply for your next apartment, be sure to find out what are the requirements for full approval. Landlords and management companies will explicitly tell you what you need in order to get accepted.

Not only will you have to meet and prove certain income requirements, many apartment communities will run a full background check.

Plus there is the matter of paying for the application fee, and what types of payment are accepted. So be sure to check out exactly what criteria apartment complexes want to see and require.

Don’t be one of those applicants who loses their application fee because they were too lazy to inquire about the requirements.

Having all of your documentation on hand will prevent you from losing out your new space to someone else. You will need items like proof of employment, income, and even references from previous landlords. Many apartment communities can now approve you within minutes with advancements in technology.
