ANSWERS TO THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS….
WHAT DO WE DO IF WE WANT TO VIEW A PROPERTY?
If you see something on our website that you think you might like you will need to come by our office at 7421 North Kings Hwy to view the property. You do not need an appointment to view any of our properties, just arrive at our office with some form of photo identification between the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday. We require anyone applying for our rentals to view the property before we will accept an application. If you would like to complete an application prior to visiting our office you may download our application from this website. We process all applications in the order we receive them.
HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?
First and foremost, we are committed to abiding by all fair housing laws. Once you decide on a property, we will need you to fill out a tenant credit application. You can download the application below. There is a nonrefundable $35.00 application fee per adult 18 years and older to apply for a property. We will check your credit, criminal records, rental history, verify income and employment and all references. The property owner will then make the determination on approval. Once we have approval from the owners you will need to provide the full security deposit to hold the home.
WHAT ABOUT THE SECURITY DEPOSIT GUIDELINES?
We require a security deposit on every rental. The security deposit is the equivalent of one month rent. For example if the rent is $1000.00 per month then the security deposit would be $1000.00 The entire security deposit must be paid prior to moving in. The security will be returned assuming that proper notice was received, all lease terms have been fulfilled, the home is left in clean condition and there are no damages. Carpets must be cleaned and receipt for cleaning provided to us, otherwise carpet cleaning charges will be deducted from the security deposit.
WHEN DO WE SIGN THE LEASE?
Normally a new resident will sign the lease on the day of move in with proof of utilities transferred into new resident’s name. The entire security deposit as well as the first month’s rent must be paid in order to move in. We will prorate rent for move in’s during the middle of the month.
WHAT IS THE MOVE OUT PROCESS?
We require a 30 day written notice for all move out’s, even if it is at the end of the lease term. We do not have an early lease break policy. Residents are obligated and responsible for the entire term of the lease. When moving out all personal items must be removed from the house, including all trash and cleaning products. Leave only items that were in the unit at move in. The rental must be cleaned including dusting and changing the air filter, cleaning all floors, bathrooms, kitchen, windows, porches and garage. When cleaning the kitchen please remember to wipe out any drawers, cabinets and appliances. The carpets must be professionally cleaned and a receipt must be provided to Platinum Rentals for verification purposes. Please do not clean the carpets until all of your belongings are out of the rental. Assuming all this is done your entire security will be returned to you within 30 days.
