Grid’s Application Process
To complete an application to rent one of our properties, each person over 18 years of age who will be residing in the property must complete the following six steps:
Step 1: Tour the property (see methods below).
Step 2: Complete the online application form.
Step 3: Provide us with copies of your identification.
Step 4: Provide us with copies of your proof of income.
Step 5: Provide us with proof of companion animal (if you have one)
Step 6: Pay a $50.00 per person application fee.
Here are the details:
Step 1: Tour the Property: We require that you tour the property in person yourself or have a trusted representative tour the property on your behalf or tour the property with us via Skype® or equivalent before we will consider your application complete. (You can move ahead to Steps 2-6 on this list before you tour the property, but we will not consider your application complete, will not put you or your group in the queue for a property, and will not begin the screening process until you have completed a tour of the property as described in this paragraph.)
Step 2: Complete the Online Application Form: Each person over 18 years of age who will be residing in the property must complete an application. The application can be accessed by selecting the “Apply Now” button next to each of the property listings in our available property list.
Step 3: Provide Copies of Your Identification: Each person over 18 years of age who will be residing in the property must provide two forms of identification: A photo identification card (a driver’s license or other government issued photo ID card, front and back) and a second piece of identification (front and back) with or without a photo.
When you complete your digital application online, you will be asked to upload digital copies of your identification. Just take pictures of your ID documents (be sure to photo both sides of each document) and have these .jpg files ready to upload when you complete the digital application process.
Step 4: Provide Proof of Income: Please be prepared to upload digital copies of proof of income documents.
- If you are employed by others, copies of your last three pay stubs and three months' proof of any other regular income.
- If you are self-employed, a copy of last year’s tax return or three months of bank statements and three months' proof of any other regular income.
- If you are not employed but have some other form of income, three months' proof of this income.
Step 5: Provide Proof of Companion Animal: If you have a companion animal, we will need to be able to contact your medical professional directly to have your medical professional complete our verification of companion animal form.
Step 6: Pay the Application Fees: Each person over 18 years of age who will be residing in the property must pay an application fee of $50.00. When you complete your online application, you will be directed to a page that will allow you to pay your application fees using a credit card.
Applying With Roommates
If you are applying for a property with a group of other roommates, we do not consider ANY application complete until we have applications, identification, proof of income, proof of companion animal, payment, and a completed tour for ALL members of your group.
When To Apply
We recommend that if you are interested in one of our properties, you act swiftly to begin the application process.
Application Fee Refunds
If we begin screening your application and you do not pass or you change your mind and do not want the property, there is no refund of your application fees.
If you are not the first applicant in line for a given property and an applicant in line ahead of you secures the property, we will cancel your application and refund your application fees in full.
Screening Process Timeline
Be sure that you provide accurate contact information for your current and prior landlord, and your current and prior employers. If, after approximately 48 hours of attempting to reach any of your current landlord, prior landlord, current employer and prior landlord we have been unsuccessful, we reserve the right to terminate our screening process and move to the next applicant for the property.
Approved Applications Timeline
If your application is approved, we will let you know via email.
We will also email you a digital lease. The lease will reflect the move-in date we agree to with you.
You will have two business days from the time we notify you of our decision for you to sign the lease and pay the security deposit required for the property.
