We do not pre-screen applications. Applicants are required to pre-screen themselves with the following criteria and will need to meet the requirements below. If you feel you meet these minimum requirements, you are encouraged to apply.
APPLICATION Process & Screening Criteria:
We require with your application, a copy of your government issued I.D., copy of your last 3 months pay stubs, and if applicable per property a picture of each pet that will be on the property. Please email the documentation to: info@GRGSA.com.
Identification - Each applicant is required to provide a copy of a legible Government issued photo I.D. card. If possible snap a photo of your ID with your smartphone and email it to info@GRGSA.com.
Income Verification - Income should be at least three (3) times the monthly rent and verifiable from an unbiased source: employer through pay stubs, tax returns, and/or bank statements. Self-employed income may also be verified with a CPA-prepared financial statement or tax returns. Your employment history should reflect at least 6 months with your current employer.
Transfers or relocations must have correspondence showing an accepted job offer. Any verification fees required by the employer must be paid by applicant. Applicants who do not meet the above employment or income requirements must submit Savings Account statements showing a minimum average balance equal to 8 months of rental payments for the last 6 months.
Employment - We require verifiable employment history for at least the past three (3) years. You must be a permanent employee (not temporary or probationary). If you are self-employed, retired, or not employed, we can accept such documents as signed tax returns (2 years minimum), bank statements, etc., that provide proof of applicant’s ability to pay the rent. If military, we need a current copy of your LES. If you are active duty military, you must be on an assignment that, to the best of your knowledge, will allow you to complete an initial 12 month lease.
Residence History - We require verifiable residence history for at least three (3) years whether you currently own or rent. Applicants are responsible for providing information including the names, addresses and phone numbers, of Landlords with the dates of tenancy for the previous 3-5 years. Rental history must be verified from unbiased sources. (Cannot be from family or relatives) Home ownership will be verified from a current credit report. We accept base housing as rental history. Evictions within the previous 5 years will be automatic grounds for denial. Broken leases will be considered on a case-by-case basis and an additional security deposit may be required.
Credit History - We will obtain a copy of your credit report from Transunion (HARD INQUIRY). You cannot provide this to us; we will obtain these ourselves. Credit history should show that the resident has paid bills on time and does
not have a history of debt “write-offs” or accounts that have gone into collection. Money owed to a previous landlord or utility company is cause for denial. Residency may also be denied due to poor credit history.
**WE DO NOT ACCEPT CO-SIGNERS. (Financially Responsible Person Must Reside At Property)
**Applicants with a Credit Score below 550 will be denied
Criminal, Sex Offense, and Terrorist Database Check - We will check these databases for all occupants 18 years old and older. We do not rent to any person required to register as a sex offender. Criminal backgrounds involving violent crimes, prostitution, and domestic violence and/or involving the possession of weapons or illegal substances are all grounds for denial of an application.
**An exception may be made for type and or age of offense, please provide details to the Property Manager.

REASONS FOR DENIAL OF APPLICATIONS
*If misrepresentations are found after the lease agreement is signed, the lease agreement will be terminated.
MONTHLY TENANT ADMINISTRATION FEE: $8.00 Per Month. All tenants will incur a $8.00 per month Tenant Administration Fee. This monthly fee offsets the cost of ACH payments, On-Line Payments, In Person Payments, Tenant Portal Access, Electronic Statements, and 24 Hour Maintenance Hotline.
NOTICE TO ALL APPLICANTS: NO SMOKING is permitted inside the home or garage.
Disabled Accessibility: Any concerns should be submitted in writing to the property manager. We must obtain Owner approval to allow modification of the premises. All modifications are at the expense of the disabled person, and the disabled person must agree to restore the premises, at their own expense to the pre- modified condition (provided the modification would affect the use and enjoyment of the premises for future residents). We require written proposals detailing the extent of the work to be done, approval from the landlord before modifications are made, appropriate building permits with required licenses made available for the landlord's inspection, and a restoration deposit may be required per Fair Housing guidelines.
SCHOOL BOUNDARIES: School Enrollment concerns should be investigated prior to submitting your application. Applicants must verify their own school information with the school district. Because of the expansive growth in this region, school enrollments get capped and designation boundaries may change. We highly recommend you contact the local school district should any of the school boundaries be a concern for the home you would like to rent.
***IT IS THE DUTY OF THE APPLICANT TO VERIFY SCHOOL BOUNDARIES***
SEX OFFENDERS: Applicants should satisfy their concerns regarding crime statistics or the presence of any sex offenders in the area, before submitting an application. This information is available free of charge on the internet at the following sites:

***WE DO NOT RENT HOMES TO REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS***
REASONS FOR DENIAL OF APPLICATIONS:
Start of Lease:
Vacant Homes: Global Realty Group LLC., has a policy that all leases on vacant homes must begin within 14 days of application approval. We are unable to hold the home rent free without a lease agreement longer than that time.
Occupied Homes: Global Realty Group LLC., will typically advertise a first available date with all of the homes we manage. In some cases, those dates will need to change due to circumstances beyond our control. We ask the approved incoming tenant be flexible in some cases. We understand the burden this can create and strive to advertise a solid date so incoming tenants can plan accordingly.
Move-In Orientation with Property Reports On-Site: All new tenants at lease signing will pay a one-time Move-In Orientation Fee of $125.00. Within the first three (3) business days of the tenant move in, arrangements will be made for a walk through inspection and home orientation with Property Reports On-Site. The Move-In Orientation will be arranged and conducted with a Property Reports On-Site. A representative from Global Realty Group LLC., will not be present during the Move-In Orientation. Any requested work orders must be submitted separately through your Portal.
The inspector will provide the tenant with a brief orientation and instruct them on basic home maintenance, including changing air filters, unclogging a garbage disposal, water cut-offs, smoke alarms, fuse & breaker box locations, and GFCI resets. The written report will include interior and exterior photos. The exterior will be documented with photos of all four sides of the home, the roof, any exterior equipment, and yard. Interior photos will be of each room, included equipment, any damaged or defective conditions, and an overall view of most areas. A copy of this report will be sent to the tenant and Global Realty Group LLC., for record. This Move-In Orientation Inspection does not take the place of the required Inventory and Condition Form made available for the tenant to complete at Lease Signing.
What Our Tenants Want You to Know:
1) Global Realty Group LLC., conducts periodic walk-through’s of the home you will live in. We take pictures of the interior and exterior of the home during those walk-through’s.
