Applying for an Austin Rental Property: The ALPS Process

Finding a new rental home doesn’t have to be a challenging and stressful experience. At Austin Landmark Property Services, we understand that the rental market is complex, especially if you’re a tenant trying to balance your income and expenses while choosing a comfortable, safe, and pleasant place to live.

We want to help. If you know what your budget is and you have an idea about your desired neighborhood, we have an excellent starting point.

We’ve rented homes. We manage homes. We understand that the application process can be confusing and time-consuming, and we’ve done everything we can to streamline what’s required of you so we can move on and help you settle into your new place.

If you’re a prospective tenant looking for a rental home, we have some information you might find helpful. And when you’re ready to view our rental properties, check out our listings. We’ll help you schedule a showing and walk you through the process.

Our website is the best place to find our available listings. You’ll be able to browse photos, read descriptions, and think about whether the move-in date works for your timing. You will find out if pets are allowed and where each home is located.

It’s also easy to find our available rental property listings with the Austin Board of Realtors multiple listing service (MLS) system.

We don’t think you should rent a property without seeing it. Schedule a showing with the assistance of the Austin Landmark Property Services REALTOR Team. If you’re already working with an agent to find your next rental home, any REALTOR that’s a member of the Austin Board of Realtors can show you the property.

Austin Landmark’s Application Requirements

Our resident application criteria will be provided to every potential applicant. It’s online and easy to access. We recommend you read it thoroughly so you can determine whether or not you have a good chance of being approved for the home.

Applications are processed on a first come first served basis. This reflects our commitment to fairness and consistency. We approve the first qualified applicant. Backup applications may be submitted and held in place, at no cost to the applicant. Any fees submitted for backup applications will be refunded unless the applications are processed as a primary application.

Prospective tenants can apply online using the application link on the listing page on our website, or on the public MLS listing online application link.

To apply, you’ll need to:

  • Complete the online application

  • Upload supporting documents that verify income and other information

  • Pay the application fees

If more than one adult will be living at the home, applicants must indicate this on their application. A link will be generated to share with co-applicants by email or text. All adult applicants can use the shared link to apply as a group.

Sometimes, a co-signer is necessary and in that case, your co-signer may complete the co-signer application online using the same method through our website or MLS listing link. Co-signer applicants don’t have to provide as much information as the applicants who will be living in the home.

Any incomplete or missing information can cause delays in the approval process or cause an incomplete application to be passed over for a complete application. Please make sure to read all instructions carefully and provide all needed documents and information during the application process.

Preparing to Sign Your Austin Lease Agreement

If your application is approved – congratulations! You’ll be notified by a property manager.

At this point, we’ll prepare your lease agreement. Please review it carefully before you sign it, and prepare a list of questions or clarifications that you need from us. We’re going to ask for your move-in date and expect to collect all move-in funds, including the security deposit, which is required as soon as you’re approved.

Before you move in, you’ll have to pay any remaining deposits, and one full month of rent. Any prorated rent will be due on the second month of the lease.

When you’re ready to move in, you can meet your property manager at the ALPS office to obtain keys and any access devices.

The hard part is over. Now, you can turn your house into a home. We are here to help you enjoy your stay.

Pam and Marc were fantastic! I was needing a house quickly and had to put my faith in this company to get me into a good house for my dog and me. I moved down from Minnesota to Leander Texas. I did all the applications online and was able to sign and pay online as well.

Our lease started July 1st 2020, but for a month prior to that Austin Landmark Property Services, Inc. walked with us, hand in hand, through the process of finding the perfect property for our family. They return calls and e-mails promptly and all questions are answered to my understanding. It has been a joy to work with such a professional group.

Working with Marc was great! The market is very tight for renters during the COVID-19 pandemic. The area we wanted to stay in is also in great demand. When we found the house he immediately prepared the paperwork and stayed in contact through the process. Very professional and easy to work with on-line. I recommend them if you want direct and advanced options to keep the transaction quick and simple and not have to drive all over town.

Very good response time on service call for garbage disposal, they noticed leak under sink and I got a new faucet. Unfortunately, they chose to buy a really inexpensive one that does not function as well as a higher end product. Oh well, not really complaining, just taking the time to fully explain my experience. We have rented here for 18 years.

I've rented for ALPS Management for a year and have absolutely no complaints. ALPS was very responsive to any issues, questions or maintenance requests I had throughout the time I leased with them. I highly recommend them if you are looking to rent a home.

We had a leaky fridge. Our property manager was responsive and sent in a maintenance request right away. We had to wait a little over a week, tho because the first replacement fridge the vendor found turned out to be a dud, but we're back to dry floors and cold food, now.
