3.4 Filling Out an Application Form


The law has recently changed. Please see TRAC’s webpage on Personal Information while we work to update this course video.


In a competitive market, you need to be ready to immediately fill out rental application forms in order to beat out other applicants.  Some properties are rented on a first-come, first-served basis.  Often, the person who gets the place is the person who submits the first good application. When you go to a viewing, be prepared to complete an application on the spot.

Take your time and fill out the form carefully to ensure everything is accurate and legible.  Bring a paperclip with you so you can attach your references, cover letter, credit check, pet resume, and certificate of completion from this course.
