How to Search For & Rent A Home In Los Angeles
The Los Angeles rental market is fragmented and scattered across many platforms. There is no one website, central hub, or database that holds a list or directory of all of the available properties for lease.
Leasing in LA is a little more work with a few more mouse clicks. Below is a breakdown of all the available sites that hold the majority of the rental inventory and the different approaches to take with each one.
- Two most recent paystubs
- Most recent w2
- Most recent tax return
- Offer Letter or Employment Contract if relocating from a different city
- If you are unable to provide the above-listed proofs of income, then the landlord may require 2- 6 months of recent bank statements showing you consistency in deposits
