Will definitely assist in getting you your rental
Be ready when you call your broker to find a rental and arrange that visit. You can't afford to miss the right rental for you because you are not prepared to meet the requirements.
You need to be ready to pay up to two (2) months’ rent, brokerage fees and a credit check fee. Bring along the certified bank checks or traveler’s checks to guarantee that the rental is yours if the renter decides in your favour.

Some helpful information
What is a W-2?
The W-2 form is the form that an employer must send to an employee and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at the end of the year. The W-2 form reports an employee's annual wages and the amount of taxes withheld from his or her paycheck.
What is a 1099?
The 1099 form is a series of documents the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) refers to as "information returns." There are a number of different 1099 forms that report the various types of income you may receive throughout the year other than the salary your employer pays you.
