How do I apply for a rental unit with Turnkey Property Management?

To apply for one of our suites simply express that interest to your realtor and they will prepare an offer to lease and application for you to fill out. Prior to viewing properties you will want to have a recent,full credit report pulled along with photo identification and pay stubs or a job letter. Your agent will compile all these documents and submit a formal offer to the prospective landlord. You will need to have first and last months rent in certified funds if your offer is accepted.

Can my landlord enter my unit without permission?

Your Landlord is to provide you with 24hrs notice prior to entering your suite. They can request access by providing you written notice and only enter between 8 am and 8pm ( unless you have authorized outside of this time frame). If you have given your landlord notice to vacate, they may enter your suite with “as much notice as possible”.
