You're looking for a new place. You're wondering how hard it's going to be get through the process of securing a sublease or a lease. Well, here's how it works on Caretaker.
Step 1. Prove you meet the requirement
You'll see the landlord's requirements on the listing. Click "add" next to each requirement, and then you'll be guided through the steps for verifying that you meet whichever one's are required.
Step 2. Choose a lease start date
Add your lease preferences to the application. Your lister may accept the application as is or request to change the dates once they've decided to accept you.
Step 3. Sign the lease and put down a deposit
Once you've applied you can sign the lease and place your deposit into escrow. The lister will get an immediate notification and will be able to review your application.
Step 4. Get accepted by the lister, the landlord, or both
If you're applying for a sublet then your application and the sublease you signed will get sent to the landlord for them to review and approve. If our support team is managing this application process then you will get a final note of approval with a link to pay your first month of rent.
If you're applying to takeover a lease then the lister (the leaseholder) will direct you to the right person at their property management company. You'll probably need to submit another application with them.
If you're applying for a lease posted by a Caretaker lister that's a landlord, once they accept your application and sign the lease you'll be done. You'll get a link to pay your rent.
