Most landlords and property managers will have you fill out an application. Name, social, birthdate, previous address, previous landlord information, current employment, employer information and a signature authorizing them to run your credit, criminal and eviction records.  In the state of Washington, agents actually have to have you acknowledge their screening criteria before pulling your records. Saving you time and money, if you don't feel you will qualify.  Always be prepared with a current paycheck stub, copy of your ID and your checkbook!  If you like a place you may want to put a deposit down proving you are interested and ready to go. Nothing better than beating out the competition because you were prepared!

Your credit report, proof of employment and possibly 4 weeks of payroll stubs.  Your most recent tax return may be requested. References from your previous landlord.  Information is generally required from everyone over the age of 18.  They will also want the name of each person living in the home.  Each situation is different but you should expect all of the above.  I hope this answers your question.
