Rental application questions for references and phone number?

Postby improvent363 » Wed Aug 10, 2011 8:15 pm

1. On applicant information section, do you have to put your home phone # or can you put your mobile phone #

2. On personal references section, can you put your brothers/parents name who lives in the same house as you address or it has to be someone else?

Q1:
On any application I always list my cell as my home number. They want a number where they can contact you and that is the most reliable for me to be contacted.
I have had the same cell number for over 11 years. It has moved from city to city with me, even changed carriers a few times. There was a time where I did not have a home phone, but still used the same cell number. On top of all that, I do not even remember my home number most of the time.

Q2:
I would ask them. It has been a while since I had to actually list references. My last 2 apartments actually ran credit checks to approve my application.

We can only assume that it is more ways than one to get a hold of you. Have you tried asking them if it still required? Sometimes the forms are printed in bulk but you can also try getting clarity from them.
