I like The Rental Girl's Listings and I only want to rent from The Rental Girl.
The Rental Girl is not a Rental Agency. She is only one person and can not physically handle all the vacancies in the Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Echo Park neighborhoods. In addition to your apartment hunting search, The Rental Girl recommends you join her VIP list, join WestsideRentals.com and search Craigslist.org.
I'm not looking to move for another 1 and a half to 2 months or more; will your vacancies still be available?
Sorry, but NO! Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Echo Park are strong rental markets. Apartments rent fast here. The Rental Girl recommends that you give yourself 30 days to find an apartment. If you start looking early, The Rental Girl recommends that you join her VIP list!
I saw an apartment I love, but I'm not ready to move until the end of the month. Can you hold the apartment for me with a deposit?
Sorry, but NO! The Rental Girl does not HOLD apartments. If you apply and are accepted into an apartment you must sign a lease and give 1st months rent and deposit at time of signing.
I want to rent an apartment I was accepted in, but I only want to pay deposit now and 1st months rent when I move in.
SORRY! The Rental Girl cannot rent an apartment without full payment of rent and deposit.
Can I pay 1st months rent and deposit with cash?
Sorry, but no. You must pay 1st months rent and deposit in the form of CASHIERS CHECK OR MONEY ORDER made out to the landlord or management company. From then on, all payments can be made with a personal check. Most landlords will not accept cash.
I'm a student and I have no income, will you rent to me?
You will be considered. Check out the APPLY NOW page and present all BASIC REQUIREMENTS and CO-SIGNER REQUIREMENTS. You will also need to present a letter of acceptance from your school or student ID.
I'm moving to L.A. from out of town. Will you rent to me?
You will be considered. Check out the APPLY NOW page and present all BASIC REQUIREMENTS and POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS. You will also need to present a letter of acceptance from your new employer.
I have my own credit report. Will you accept it?
Sorry, but no.
I work in the Film Industry, or I am Self Employed. Will you rent to me?
You will be considered. Check out the APPLY NOW page and present all BASIC REQUIREMENTS and POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS. You will need to prove that your income is at least 3 times the rent.
I have a Dog, will you rent to me?
If the landlord accepts pets, The Rental Girl will consider renting to you. The Rental Girl will talk to you about your pet and your specific needs. The Rental Girl must first meet and screen your pet before a lease is signed.
Is the screening fee/credit check fee refundable?
Before you apply or turn in the screening fee, be sure you want the apartment or house. The screening fee/credit check money is not refundable because the screening process starts the moment you pay the fee.
