4 People On One Lease? Is that an issue?

Hi everyone,

Me, my fiance, my younger sister, and a really good friend that we currently live with are looking to rent a home in the next month or so, mainly for space purposes and want to find a something to lease long term. We are all over 18 and all have good rental history, no evictions or anything like that. Me and my sister both have credit scores of 700+ and my fiance has a credit score of 600+. Will it be difficult to find a home that will allow all 4 of us on a lease? Should we get letters of recommendation from our current landlords? Any advice would be great thanks.

The Residential Lease contract is promulgated with space for 4 tenants' initials on each page, and 4 signatures on the last page of the document. Each landlord will have their Realtor or property manager screen each tenant individually upon receiving an Application from each tenant. Each of you will fill out an individual Application. On the Application there is a section to list who else will be occupying the property with you. One minor issue you may run into is parking for 4 vehicles. If the garage and driveway cannot handle parking for 4 cars be sure and check if the Homeowners Association will allow parking at the curb. Many HOAs do not allow overnight parking on the street.

If all roommates sign a lease, everyone is equally responsible for the rent. Some landlords will require every tenant to be on the lease so that each of you are legally responsible for upholding the terms of the lease. Others will only want one or two roommates on the lease and have the rest of the roommates just sign on as 'occupants' so that they don't have to worry about collecting rent from multiple people.

Hey. I think that a recommendation is not needed, but it’s better to reassure yourself and ask a recommendation from current landlords. I don’t think that you will have problems with the lease, the main thing is to settle all the nuances about parking spaces, garage, etc. Good luck.
