Application & Guidelines

Thank you for considering to apply for a Born Real Estate Managed Property!

Any person planning on staying in the home for more than 30 Days is a potential tenant and any potential tenant over 18 years of age must fill out an application. All applicants must be able to enter into a legal binding contract. All applicants must have been shown the property by a Born Property Management staff member to qualify.

Please visit or click "Online Rental Application" on the menu bar just to the left of this paragraph for an online application to rent. Submitting an application does not guarantee approval or take the home off the market for rent from other prospects.

Additional Documents Required to Complete the Application:

In order to have a completed application file, please e-mail the following to or upload the files to Dropbox File Request (no account needed)

I. Copy of your ID's

Proof of Identification which could include a driver's license, military. This can be sent via your mobile telephone camera.

2. Proof of Employment or Sustainable Funds.

This could be your two (2) most current paycheck stubs or if self-employed, a copy of the most recent past two (2) years IRS Individual Tax Filings. No corporate returns please. If your employment income does not meet the requirements you can show copies of the past two months of personal bank statements. Again, no corporate returns.

3. Pay Application Fee $40 per applicant

You will be asked to share your credit and background check information with the property manager. A $40.00 non-refundable application fee is charged by Born Property Management to process your application. The credit card will be processed at the point we have received all your application elements and when you are first in the queue, just prior to when we run your credit. Once the application fee is charged, we can not refund the Application Fee but we can provide you an electronic copy of your credit report if a request is made in writing.

Application Process

Completed applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received. All persons 18 years of age or older must apply separately. Applications to rent are offered to everyone that inquires about a rental. Once we receive your application and it is reviewed, you will be sent an e-mail request to visit the website and create an account to view the specific details of this request.

SmartMove is a service of TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions. SmartMove claims to provide a safe, secure and convenient tool for potential tenants to exchange information with property owners/property managers for consideration in the lease process. All of the applicant's sensitive information is held at credit reporting company, not the property management company. Also, because the request for credit history and score is initiated by the applicant, the credit score is considered a 'soft hit' on the applicant's history, which TransUnion claims doesn't impact the credit score.

You will be asked to share your credit and background check information with the property manager. A $40.00 non-refundable application fee is charged by Born Property Management.

Born Property Management usually takes 3 business days to approve/deny an application and there may be several applications in the stack. Often times, our Owner Client's live in remote places where telephone and internet access is difficult and it could take longer.

You will know when you are approved or denied because we will call you in either situation. You are not advised to call or contact us hourly or daily but we are available to give you weekly update when requested.
