The Application Process
Renting a home with Eaton Realty is easy!
- Once you've found the home you're interested in renting, contact us to confirm its availability and request an application password.
- Complete the online application and submit your payment via PayPal using a credit card.
In addition to the online application, we require the following supporting documentation: (scan/email or fax to 813-283-4846)
- Pay stub(s) for the past 60 days for each wage-earning applicant. Alternatively a W2, or for new jobs, a verification of salary on company letterhead. If you're self-employed, provide the most recent year's tax return and a P&L statement for the past 12 months.
- Most recent 60-days of asset verification. This should be in the form of bank statements showing account balances in checking accounts, savings accounts, etc. for the past two-months.
- Copies of each applicant's Government-issued ID (driver's license). If you have a smart phone, it often works best to take a photo and email the image directly from your phone.
- If you're currently renting, a Rental Verification form completed by your current landlord.
- If you have pets, email a clear photo of each pet. Again, smart phones come in handy here!
The Approval Process
Once you have submitted your application and documentation, we will, for each applicant:
- Obtain a credit report with score and payment history
- Run a nation-wide criminal background check
- Verify employment
- Review rental history
Once your application is approved, we will have the lease prepared and sent to you via email. You'll print and sign the lease and return to our office with your deposit.
We'll email you with instructions each step of the way. We'll also provide you with links and phone numbers for utility and community information.
Finally, we'll meet you at your new home to deliver keys, and orient you with the home's various systems and features.
If you need to move quickly and choose one of our currently available homes, we can rush the entire application process and check you in to your new home in as little as 24 hours!
