Rental Property Questions
- Interested applicants will be asked to fill out the appropriate application, Student or Residential. The fee for this application is $30.00, paid online at the time application is made. All persons over the age of 18 must fill out an application to be considered for tenancy. Riner Rentals will perform a credit check, rental history check, and employment verification. If an applicant is a student or not employed, a guarantor must be used or they must qualify on their own. The guarantor must also fill out an application and the guarantor form.
- Once your completed application is received, your information will be processed and within 1-2 business days you will be notified as to whether or not you have been approved for the property. During this time frame, we will run your credit report, verify current employment, and check your rental references. If you are approved for the property we will contact you and the leasing process will follow after viewing available property.
- After signing the Application Deposit Agreement and paying the security deposit a lease will be emailed to you. The Lease must be signed within 48 hours after the lease is emailed or the unit will go back on the rental market and 50% of the deposit/routine maintenance fee will not be refunded.
Please contact Riner Rentals at (540) 438-8800 with any questions that you may have about the application or leasing process.
