Applicant screening processes


Paramount utilizes a thorough screening process for individuals who apply to lease an apartment. Every applicant must meet the following requirements:

A last month's rent deposit is mandatory to hold an apartment and process your application. Payment must be made in the form of a money order, certified cheque or Interac. Regular cheques will not be accepted.

A recommendation from your current landlord. If a letter from your landlord is not provided, our leasing agent will contact your landlord directly. This is to verify that your rent payment is always timely and that you have mutual respect for other tenants’ enjoyment of the property.

A letter from your current employer stating your position, yearly salary and duration of your employment. If a letter is not provided, your employer will be contacted directly by our leasing agent to verify this information.

A credit check will be processed to verify your credit history and current credit position. As a result, a social insurance number and/or birthday will be required in order to administer a credit check.

Please note that if you are not approved to lease an apartment with Paramount, your deposit will be refunded to you in full.
