    How can I obtain a proof of income for a rental application?

  • #2
    To obtain proof of income for a rental application, you can provide one or more of the following documents:
    1. Pay stubs
    2. Employment verification letter
    3. Bank statements
    4. Tax returns
    5. Offer letter or employment contract
    6. Social Security benefits letter
    7. Other income documents (e.g., rental income, alimony, child support).
    Ensure the documents are accurate, up-to-date, and clearly show your income and employment details. Check with the landlord or property management for any specific requirements.​

        Hey there! Finding the right proof of income for a rental application can be a bit confusing. Here are a couple of things that have worked for me in the past:

        Pay Stubs: This is usually the most common and preferred option. If you get regular paychecks, your pay stubs will show your employer, gross pay, deductions, and net pay. Most recent paystubs (like the last two or three) are usually ideal.
        Bank Statements: If you don't get pay stubs, or your income comes from freelance work or commissions, then bank statements can be a good alternative. This will show deposits coming into your account, but might not be as detailed as a pay stub.
        Tax Return (1099 for US): While not always preferred by landlords, your tax return can be a good indicator of your annual income.
        Letter from Employer: In some cases, you might be able to get a letter from your employer verifying your employment and income level.

        Here's a tip: When applying for an apartment, it can't hurt to have a couple of these options on hand. The landlord might have a preference, and it shows you're prepared.​

          Hey! I’m new here too. When I needed proof of income for a rental, I found that providing pay stubs or a letter from my employer worked well. If you’re a student, Axon Property Management has some great options in Kingston. You can check out their student rentals here: https://axonproperties.ca/student-rentals-kingston/ .
          Just submit one application to get started. Good luck with your rental application!​
