Tenant Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Can you hold a place before I apply?

    A: The only way to reserve a property is to submit a completed application and provide a separate check or money order for a “Holding Deposit” which is equal to one month’s rent. The property may be held during the application process only, and then a move-in date must be established.
  • Q: You have a property I want to rent. How do I apply?

    A: Our application process is very easy. Your first step is to contact our office. We will discuss your options and view properties. When you select one of our great rental homes, we will walk you through the application process.
  • Q: Do I pay first month’s rent and last month’s rent with my Security Deposit?

    A: You pay your first month’s rent, your Security Deposit, pet deposits and a non-refundable cleaning fee when you sign your lease. The Security Deposit is typically equal to one month’s rent.
  • Q: Is the Security Deposit refundable?

    A: Security Deposits may be refunded to tenants who have fulfilled all of the conditions in their lease, and have left the home in the same condition as when they moved in. Lakeside Property Rentals, LLC provides each tenant with a detailed move-out guide when they notify us they will be vacating the home.
  • Q: How do you approve tenants?

    A: All prospective tenants must meet specific criteria for approval. We use credit, background and rent history checks to assist us in the approval process. You may discuss any special circumstances with us when you apply. Call today to schedule a showing at one of our rental homes, and we will go over the application process in detail with you.
