HOW THE RENTAL PROCESS WORKS!
- Once you have chosen the home or unit of your liking, you will then fill out our “Access Realty Rental Application”. Our Rental Application can be filled out the following ways: You can pick up a hard copy in our office, Download the PDF form from our website (It is located on the home page, top right corner), or it can be filled out online. (If you do plan to fill out an application please read the “Filling out a Rental Application” section below. IT HAS A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFO YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW!)
- Once you have filled out the application COMPLETELY, you will then turn it in to our front office with a copy of each adult applicant’s current photo ID, and a $65.00 application fee. The application fee is $65.00 PER ADULT. Then our administration will then conduct a simple background check. The Background check will consist of the following; (Criminal Background, Credit History, Previous Rental Verification’s, Employment Verification’s, and References) Once the credit and background check is completed, Proof of income may need to be provided. Please be aware that the application process will take anywhere from 24-72hrs, depending on what information will need to be obtained for approval.
- Once an approval is reached, you may do one of the following options;
- Put a holding deposit of $500 down on the property that you are applying for. This will take the property off of the rental list for up to two weeks (No longer – and this will vary w/ each owner). The holding deposit is non-refundable if you later decide not to rent the property. (The holding deposit will account towards your deposits should you occupy.)
- If you would like to move into the property once an approval is obtained, then a holding deposit will not be necessary. You must schedule a lease signing with one of our Property Managers within 24hrs of approval. ALL deposits will be due at the time of lease signing. A list of our fees and deposits are listed below. Also renters insurance will need to be obtained before keys are released.

1. I have bad credit, will I pass the Access Realty background check?
Access Realty has a system. When we run your background our system literally gives us a yes or no answer if you are approved or denied.
Approvals and denials are solely up to the Owner of the subject property and the Property Managers discretion.
Please note Access Realty staff CANNOT give any prospects a yes or no answer if they will be approved or denied prior to running a credit check. Prospects will have to to apply to receive a definitive answer. However, below is a list of some items we look for on credit.
(The below is just a complimentary reference to what Access Realty looks for, this does not mean that a prospect will be approved or denied based on any below items being present or not present on their credit check, as many other items factor into the approval process)
The following is an example of the main items we look for when it comes to a credit score and could be grounds for a denial. (Evictions within the last 7 years, money owed to other property management companies, apartment complexes, or owners. Delinquent accounts such as utilities, loan companies, cell phone companies, cable companies, or credit cards. A repo on any vehicles. Foreclosures within the last 5 years, more than 1 bankruptcy in past 10yrs, or 1 bankruptcy in the last 3yrs, misdemeanor criminal record within the last 5 years, or felony criminal charges within the last 10.)
2. If I am approved can I make payments on the deposits?
Unfortunately we do not accept payments on deposits. All deposits will need to be paid in full prior to receiving keys. If you cannot come up with all deposits upon approval, we recommend you put a $500 holding deposit down to hold the subject property, and this will give you up to two weeks to come up with the remainder. (The $500 holding also accounts towards your deposits).
3. Does Access Realty welcome section 8?
Depending on the property, as it is solely up to the specific owner of all our rental properties if they accept section 8 housing vouchers or not. But yes Access Realty proudly welcomes section 8 renters to take a look at our rental list to see what we properties are available at that time that will accept a section8 housing voucher.
NOTE: We ask that prior to section8 prospects calling or applying with Access Realty that they have a definitive understanding of what their voucher amount with HUD will cover. For example if HUD issues a voucher amount for $949 for a 2bedroom, HUD deducts anywhere from $75-$150 for utilities from the total rent amount, whether utilities are included or not. Meaning the $949 voucher amount is really only for $799-$874. So that prospect must find a 2 bedroom in that price range.
4. When is my rent late?
Access Realty rents are due from the 1st through the 5th. After the 5th of each month your rent will be considered late, and late charges will apply.
5. Can I pay my rent online?
Yes Access Realty conveniently has an online tenant portal, this will allow you to do anything from pay your rent online, to input maintenance orders. You will receive a verification e-mail within 24hrs after you sign your lease, giving you step-by-step directions on how to set up your tenant portal. We also have a direct link on the home page – (it is the orange button labeled “Residents”, but you must have already gone through the set-up process, as it provides you your username and password.)
6. Does your office conduct move-in and move-out walk through’s for my protection?
Yes! Access Realty has a rental inspector that will do a detailed move-in, and move-out walk thru with you, with a detailed report and photos. The pictures and inspection report are then added to your file. Also keep in mind every 6 mo to a year an inspection will be conducted to make sure the property is being properly maintained, and to make note of any maintenance issues that need attention. The Property Manager/Owner has the right to give notice of entry to inspect the property. Keep in mind digital photos are taken to show a walk-thru was conducted, if you are uncomfortable with this, please put away any personal belongings you do not wish to be seen in the photos, as taking the walk-through photos is MANDATORY!
7. Once I vacate a property how long does it take to receive my security refunds?
Access realty legally has up to 30 days to refund your deposits, but in some cases depending on how the property was left, the process can go a lot faster.
8. Does your company consider short term leases, or rent to owns?
-Access Realty will rarely allow a short term lease agreement, Usually the standard lease is 1 year but if a short term lease agreement is approved an additional $100-$150 will be added to the original monthly rent amount and the tenant will usually have to pay what’s called a “Leasing Fee” this is a one time fee of $450. A short term lease is up to the owner of the subject property.
-Rent to owns are rarely ever seen here anymore, we do however see “Owner Will Carry” a.k.a “OWC” situations. They are much more common then rent to owns. If you would like to learn more about an Owner will carry option, please call our office to get a list of what properties will allow an OWC
