For those of you who have units for travel nurses, do you have them complete an application just as you would for a regular tenant? Just curious what other people are doing. Thanks

That is an excellent question. Following. . ..

If they come through Airbnb, no security deposit or lease.

If they come through furnished finders or referral, a security deposit and lease are required.

Hi Marcia!

I don't have a travel nurse place yet. But if I did, I would require an application, security deposit and lease. --75.11.xx.xx

I use my regular application etc. My lease is even the same except I have drop-dead dates in it, it doesn't extended to a M2M automatically, for instance. It does say that holding over after the lease is over is trespassing. And of course language to reflect utilities and furnishings and guests, etc.

I collect a full Security Deposit but not 2 months rent as I do with Annuals, just one month which is enough because the rent is $2k to start with. I've had only two tenants since March thus far, because both asked to extend their contracts and we agreed, so this last one leaves November 30th. We are keeping it empty over December to do some tweaks so I've not looked for a replacement right now.

Thanks for all the feedback. That is how I do it also. I collect the security deposit of $1000. I also use my regular application and lease. Basically, I treat my travel nurses the way I treat my regular tenants with the exception that I am very flexible on my lease terms meaning they don'dt have to move in on the 1st or 15th. They can basically move in any day, and then the rent is due on that day each month.

I also have a slightly different cleaning checklist. They don't get maid service while living here of course, and when they move out we do ask for the full clean just as we do with Annuals. But they are also asked to run a last load of dishes, strip the bed, and load the washer with towels or sheets and turn it on. We'll go down later and finish any laundry, put away the dishes, etc.

I use a full online application, but it asks some different questions. Focused a bit less on long rental history and more on the job offer they are coming for.

I have one coming 8/28 for a small studio. The rent is $900, and the security is lower, at $300. There is also a pre-paid cleaning fee.

I have a detailed inventory of all the items in the unit, to include with move-in and out inspections. How many forks & spoons, pots, plates, towels, sheets, etc, etc.

This Physical Therapist reserved it so quickly after I put it on furnished finder, that I didn't have time - but for the future I will create a price list to add to the Rental Agreement, to show them the replacement costs when they move in, like the regular long-term rental agreement.

I also use a full Rental Agreement, but but simplified & modified, because it includes utilities and lawncare. Completed it online, got the deposit as a holding fee by pay pal (will become a deposit after she arrives and pays for September + a couple days. She may also choose to pay that remotely before she arrives, too.

Also, do a full credit/criminal check.

I've found furnished finder to be MUCH better than airbnb because I can do all these things.

I have a very abbreviated lease, that I present as to get 'emergency contact' info with my house rules. I collect a deposit that acts as a deposit to hold then as a security deposit once they arrive. I've only once not returned it to someone who reserved then cancelled last minute and I couldn't re-rent. I rent by the week, collecting 4 weeks at a time. Not all my guests are nurses. I heavily discount from my standard airbnb rate by 50 to 60% for long term of 1 month or longer. Which makes it much more attractive to traveling workers. I've never had anything turn up missing but have had things left..a suitcase, bedding, roku tv, coffee maker, label maker, etc. (I did end up paying the guest for the things he left behind that I used). Renting by the room for a 3 bedroom house has made the house profitable finally since it has such high insurance and tax costs. It's a little more work (maybe) but the clientele is so much higher 90% of the time. --64.184.xx.xx
