Thank you for your interest in renting a home from TransCity Property Management. If you have not already seen the property, make sure you schedule a showing with our leasing agents so you can know for sure if you’ve found the right home.
Our rental application steps are simple and straightforward. Here’s what you need to do:
- Pull up the listing that you want on our website. Click on the “Apply Now” button.
- Complete all of the information on the application, and submit it according to the online instructions.
- Click on “Click Here” for the supplemental application.
- On the third page of the supplemental application, you are only required to fill out the name and address of your current landlord as well as your own name and address with your signature, and your landlord reference will complete the rest.
- Once you have finished any supplements to the application, email it to the appropriate leasing agent, or fax it to our office.
- Fill out the pet screening application. (This is required by ALL applicants whether or not you will have pets) see additional info here
Once we have both the application and the supplemental application and the pet screening application as well as your application fee, we’ll be able to verify your information and get back to you with a decision as soon as possible.

Security Deposit & Admin Fee
- Applicants with better credit and references will generally be approved at the standard deposit listed on the property.
- Applicants with credit scores below 600 may still be approved with extra security deposit.
- $250.00 administration fee due upon lease signing.
- $10.00 monthly administration fee will be added to the monthly rent.
- Legal maximum for security deposits in Arizona is 1.5 times the monthly rent.
Credit scores are important to us, but we are interested in the things that created the credit score more than the score itself. A low credit score may be off-set by great rental history and solid income.
- 650-800 = Standard Approval*
- 600-649 = Conditional Approval* (typically requires 1.5 times the rent as a deposit)
- 530-599 = Possible Denial (If approved, 1.5 times the rent will be required as a deposit)

TENANT LIABILITY INSURANCE is now required for all Leases and Lease Renewals. Please see our Tenant Liability Insurance Policy
TransCity Property Management requires all of our tenants to purchase renter’s insurance before signing a lease for one of our properties. Your lease agreement requires that you list Transcity as additional insured on your renters policy. While your landlord will have an insurance policy that covers the structure of the home, you will need your own insurance to keep your personal belongings covered against loss.
