New Tenant Form
1st Place Realty would like to thank you for selecting one of our properties. First month’s rent is due upon move-in or by the move-in date on your lease. 1st month’s rent can be paid by money order, certified check, or if applicable online. If tenants need to move-in early, 1st Place may be able to have them sign an ASIS form. However, everyone on the lease must sign this document which can be found on our website.
- Move-In: Payment must be submitted in FULL before keys will be disbursed. If you would like to move in early, ALL tenants must sign an Early Move-in waiver form unless the property is already done for move-in. Keys will be given to the 1st person who picks up the keys along with any parking passes and laundry keys if applicable. If you need a U-Haul truck, 1st Place Realty recommends calling them months in advance.
- Rental Payments: Tenants may pay 1st month’s rent by money order, certified check, or online if applicable. Please read your lease about payment. If you pay online, your landlord will be charging you a convenience fee which is stated on your lease. If your landlord allows you to pay by check, we have a door slot at our office at 3006 N High St, Ste. B, Columbus, OH 43202 or ALL mailed payments need to go to PO Box 211026, Columbus, OH 43221.
- Utilities: The tenant is responsible to turn on their own utilities unless stated in the lease. Tenant(s) may need the landlord’s permission for cable if they need to install a new jack. If so, please call the office so we can scan you permission. The water bill will be set up through your landlord. Our company suggests purchasing renter’s insurance. We have a list of companies on another link on the website.
