Most landlords have similar criteria for leasing homes. I have listed the requirements for leasing below for your information:
- Good credit rating
- All residents over 18 must fill out an application and pay an application fee of $35 - $50 (in the form of a cashier's check or money order) - this covers a background and credit check
- Combined monthly income must be two to three times the lease price
- Proof of income is required
- Upon acceptance and signature of contract one month's rent is due in cashier's check or money order for security deposit
-Upon move-in one month's rent is due to cover first month's rent (This can be prorated depending upon move-in date)
- If pets are allowed there is usually a pet fee which can range from $250 and up
I hope this is of help to you. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
congrats on your decision to move to Frisco. I moved from Mississippi a few years ago. I think you will like it. I think you are playing it smart by looking now. Early looking has its advantages.
I think you should have at least three months cushion to take care of deposits, expenses. There are so many possibilities as to cities to live.

Most landlords will want about 1month deposit and 1 month rent up front.
There is normally a $35-45 application fee per adult.
Places tend to rent pretty fast in Frisco and actually all of North Texas right now.
You probably only want to look about 30days before your move unless you want to pay rent early.
You can check out Frisco rentals at the link below.
$1000 is probably a little low in Frisco, just due to the price of the houses. There may be one around occasionally at that price. My experience has been there are normally about 6-7 available in $1250-$1400 range. If you want to get down to about $1000 it's probably best to expand your search to some of the surrounding communities. Little Elm, The Colony, Anna, and Prosper might be good alternatives.
I have some tips for renting at this website:
Let me know if I can assist you in any way...and welcome to Texas.
You may also want to contact a realtor that works with rental properties to keep an eye out for you. As was already stated, the deposit is normally the price of 1 month rent and both due when signing the lease.
Systematic Home Inspections
Well it really depends on how much the rent on your home will be. The deposit is usually the same amount as one months rent. A lot of the owners charge anywhere form 30 to 45 dollars for a background check on each person over the age of 18 that will be living in the home. Although some of the utilities might charge for some deposit in many cases those can be small or divided onto the first bill. I usually tell my clients to start looking withiin 4 to 3 weeks before move in.Anything longer and you might not be able to lock down a home because most rental homes are moving withing about 30 days. Feel free to call me or email what your looking for and I ould be happy to help.The owner would pay me so it is free for you. Also you can look for lease homes at http://larrythemason.kwrealty.com/ Let me know how I can help. Larry
As far as how far in advance you need to look: I would not start looking any earlier then one month from your estimated move in date. If they are vacant you could move in in as little as one week but if it is occupied then they normally need to give a one month notice (unless notice has already been given).
I would be happy to help you with your new lease if you would like. Good luck with your move.
