Las Vegas Rental Application Frequently Asked Questions

HOW CAN I QUALIFY TO LAS VEGAS RENTAL APPLICATION?

The criteria that we use to qualify prospective tenants is a “tiered” system. The higher the credit score, the easier it is to qualify. Verifiable rental history, co-applicant qualification, and income verification can all be used to qualify a tenant.

Applicants who have been evicted in the past are automatically disqualified. Evictions typically show up on credit reports

All applicants MUST submit a rental application. We conduct our own credit check in all circumstances.

If a tenant can not qualify under our normal qualification procedures, additional security deposits (up to triple the normal amount) may be requested to qualify a tenant.

 

HOW MUCH IS THE APPLICATION FEE?

Our non refundable application fee is $50 per adult. All upfront fees can only be accepted in the form of a cashier’s check or money order. Cash is never accepted. Personal checks are not accepted for upfront fee payments. Payable to: Re/Max Advantage.

 

HOW MUCH IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT?

Security deposits are typically equal to one month’s rent and are fully refundable at the conclusion of the lease if the property is returned in good condition. If the property is behind a gated community, we may add a $50 refundable key deposit.

If a tenant can not qualify under our normal qualification procedures, additional security deposits (up to triple the normal amount) may be requested to qualify a tenant.

 

WHEN IS RENT DUE?

Rent is due immediately upon lease signing. One month’s rent is required to move-in. We pro-rate your rent payment for the second month of occupancy to refund any overpayment of initial rent.

For example:

Rent: $1000
Move-In: Jan 15th

Projected Security Deposit Due: $1,000
Projected Jan Rent Due By Move-In: $1,000
Projected February 1 Rent Amount: $500

 

ARE PETS ALLOWED?

Depends on the property, the owner, the pet, and the applicant. Fill out the pet application with the regular application form. Generally dogs larger than 40lb should be cleared before you even submit the application. In any event, we do require a pet deposit in order to accept pets in a property. Failure to disclose a pet prior to occupancy and receive approval would result in an eviction. So disclose your pets up front!

 

HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL LEASE PERIOD?

Lease periods are typically 1 – 2 years. In some cases, we can authorize short term leases of 6 – 12 months depending on owner discretion. Additionally, we do not end leases between Dec 1 and Jan 30 because of the holiday season slowdown in rent traffic.
