Hello Irma, no this is not normal and sounds like the typical rental scam. You should flag it to be removed. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service. You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

The rentals in Corona start from $1,050 for 1bd 1ba apartment, $1,300 for 2bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from $1,500 for 3bd 2ba home. The purchase start from 129k for 1bd 1ba condo, 164k for 2bd 2ba condo and the single family homes start from 199k for 2bd 1ba home which is as low as $1,000 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. If you have credit issues, your credit scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Hi Rita!

Not as far as I know ... except for Section 8 rentals as mentioned below. But, it is certainly common sense!

However, all tenants have a right to "quiet enjoyment" of the premises ... and who can enjoy a breezy summer evening with windows open to the refreshing air if flocks of various insects are streaming in? Not to mention the occasional mouse or bird. Or little kids climbing in and out of open windows for fun?

I believe it would be very hard to get a good tenant to agree to rent a home without window screens unless the rent is way below market.. And, maybe not even then. Most tenants regard window screens as standard equipment and very important!
