This worksheet is designed to help you determine whether an apartment would be appropriate for you and, if applicable, your family. The questions about screening are important because many landlords charge an application fee to screen for criminal history, credit history, and rental history. If you know in advance the “tolerance level” of the landlord (that is, whether the landlord will rent to people in your situation), you can decide if it would be worth paying the fee and applying for the apartment.
On this worksheet you will find:
- tips to help you with the call
- a telephone script
- charts to fill out and take notes on during the call
