10 Essential Items You Need for Your Los Angeles Rental Application

Here is a list of some common items that a renter may need when applying for a rental house in Los Angeles:

  1. Completed rental application form: This typically includes personal information such as name, current address, employment history, and references.

  2. Proof of income: Renters will need to provide documentation that shows they have a stable source of income, such as pay stubs, bank statements, or tax returns.

  3. Credit report: A credit report will show the renter's credit score, payment history, and any outstanding debts. Many landlords will run a credit check on applicants, so it's a good idea to get a copy of your report ahead of time to ensure it's accurate.

  4. References: Renters may be asked to provide references from previous landlords, employers, or other professional contacts.

  5. Identification: A renter will need to provide a government-issued ID, such as a driver's license or passport, to verify their identity.

  6. Security deposit: Many landlords require a security deposit to cover any potential damages or unpaid rent. The amount of the deposit can vary, but it's typically equal to one or two months' rent.

  7. Renters insurance: Some landlords may require renters to have renters insurance, which protects the tenant's belongings in case of theft, fire, or other unexpected events.

  8. Pet information: If the renter has a pet, they may need to provide information about the pet, such as its breed, size, and vaccination history.

  9. Rental history: Renters may be asked to provide information about their rental history, including the name and contact information of previous landlords.

  10. Application fee: Some landlords may require an application fee to cover the cost of running a credit check or other background checks. The fee amount can vary, but it's typically around $30 to $50.
