Most landlords will want first and last month’s rent, your personal information, and a well-written resume of where you’ve lived before and how it went. This might seem a little invasive but they want to know that they’re going to be able to get paid on time and without any undue fuss. A tenant that has a history of running out in the middle of the night and not paying the rent isn’t bound to instill a lot of confidence.
