Up until recently my husband and I had been living with his mom. However with the economy being the way it is, we've had a hard time paying for it.
Just recently she found a buyer and now my husband and I are looking for an apartment. I've never done this before but I was a bit worried about some of the information that was requested on the first applicantion I picked up. Is a request social security normal? The applicantion has the site the landlord uses for tenant screening? http://www.tenantverification.com/ It looks legit but I'm not sure how to tell. Is there anything I should be wary of handing out? What do they normally ask for? I've heard about some of the scams on craigslist and I'm a bit worried. If anyone would help It would be appreciated before. Neither me or my husband have ever rented before.
