Submitting an Application

Presidio Real Estate Services is Ventura County’s #1 resource for rental properties. Our extensive database and resources allow Presidio to find the right property for you. Searching for your Home should be a fast and easy process.

Application Process

  • Anyone who is older than 18 must submit an application. If your income is not being used to qualify for the home, we still require you to submit an application. We run criminal and eviction checks on all prospective tenants.
  • Pets:  Please complete our pet information form.  Additional fees and/or deposit may apply.
  • Processing Time: It normally takes 1-2 business days to process your application unless you complete our online application. In some cases online applications can be approved with contingencies immediately.
  • Security Deposit: This is typically 1.5 times the monthly rent.
  • Move in funds:  The full security deposit and first month’s rent is due at lease signing. A cashier’s check is required for all move – in funds. Some of the deposit will be used as a holding deposit until move-in. If you need additional time to secure funds ask our office for an exception ruling.
  • Holding deposit: The holding deposit is used until you move-in to a property. If you cancel a signed lease agreement prior to move-in the owner may be entitled to keep part or all of the holding deposit.
  • Home inspections:  We may ask to see your current home
