Home Rentals Application

Rental Application Requirements

Thank you for considering a home or apartment with the Spartan Agency, LLC. Application fees are $25 per adult (cash, money order, or cashiers check only) and are non-refundable. Completed applications are processed on a first-come first-serve basis and we will accept the first qualified applicant. The screening processing can take 24-48 hours depending on how quickly landlords return rental reference requests. We currently do not accept comprehensive reusable screening reports.

If the application is approved the holding fee must be paid within 24hrs to hold the property and take it off the market until the agreed move in date. If applicant(s) do not take possession on the agreed upon possession date, the holding fee WILL NOT BE REFUNDED and will be forfeited, unless Spartan Agency cannot deliver the property to the applicant(s). If tenancy does occur on or before the agreed possession date, this fee will be applied to the security deposit due. Properties can only be held for up to 10 days before the rental agreement starts.   

If an applicant is denied he/she has the right to dispute the accuracy of the information reported, and upon written request, the right to obtain a copy of the reports. Direct inquiries to- LPS Inc. 16625 Redmond Way, Ste#M-446, Redmond, WA 98052.
