1What is tenant screening
Tenant screening is defined as a process used primarily by residential landlords and property managers to evaluate prospective tenants. The purpose is to access the likelihood the tenant will fulfill the terms of the lease or rental agreement. The process culminates in a decision as to whether to approve the applicant, approve the applicant conditionally (such as requiring an increased deposit or cosigner) or deny tenancy.
2How can I view one of your rentals?
Please contact our office at (770) 557-1744 to schedule a viewing. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10AM – 6PM.
3What are your rental qualifications?
A valid picture ID must be presented with your rental application. Your combined monthly income must be at least three times the monthly rent. We verify rental history, run a credit and background check and verify employment.
4Is there an application fee?
Yes. There is a $35 non-refundable fee per applicant. Before we can process your application, these fees must be paid in full.
5What type of proof of income is acceptable when submitting an application?
Your two most recent paycheck stubs, direct deposit slips or bank statements are acceptable forms.
6What are the move-in costs?
We require the first month’s rent be paid in advance along with the security deposit.
7I have a pet, is that okay? And are there any pet deposits?
Certain properties will allow pets. The decision is at the sole discretion of the property owner. In many cases, our property owners will allow pets but require an additional pet deposit of $250 (non-refundable).
Property Owner Testimonial
GA/ATL Property Management has been a fantastic life saver for me. I have 4 rental properties that are in their hands and I sleep soundly. For years I rented the units myself only to find myself with lousy tenants who not only damaged the property but also failed to pay rent multiple times!! When I was in between tenants a friend of mine recommended I try a property management company and gave me GA/ATL Property Management’s information. I called them and the owner came out and met with me. He explained all their services and within a month had both the units rented to extremely qualified tenants. That was over 6 months ago. Tenants are still there and not one rent payment has been missed. I couldn’t be happier.— James Freeman
