Have Questions About Renting?

Check out our FAQs about renting real estate in South Bay, California.

Application form; Recent pay stubs for the last three-six months; A letter from your employer confirming your job title, salary and contract length; Two months of bank account statements; A tax return for the most recent tax year(if you are self-employed) are needed.

To make a good impression on your landlord, you should describe yourself as the best tenant in a cover letter. Drop a few lines about your lifestyle and say what kind of person you are, how much you will care about the property and use it nicely. If your background is not impeccable, provide a brief explanation of why you had issues in the past and what you did to fix them. Talk Yui, she will help you find a way to impress the landlord.

Landlords in California do have the right to run background checks on prospective tenants. They have the right to check your credit score, criminal history, and rental history without your permission. 

The landlord has the right to question you to see if you’re a suitable tenant. He/she can’t question you about everything, though — federal law puts some topics off-limits, and California law adds a few more. Questions about your race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and religion are all illegal.

California landlord-tenant law prohibits landlords from arbitrarily raising rent year to year. California law limits increases of rent to 5% each year plus inflation. 

What Our Clients Have to Say...

Yui was just so diligent and speedy! There were a series of situations that required very quick decisions, but each time she gave me the information and advice I needed to make a decision, which allowed me to make the offer quickly and comfortably. After the offer was made, Yui gave me precise instructions on how to submit the required documents, prepared a nice letter to the seller, collected information, and gave me advice on how to respond to the counter-offer, etc. Thanks to her kindness, I was able to successfully purchase this property. After the purchase, she carefully explained all the necessary and important information about the complicated procedures one by one so that even I, knowing very little about purchasing a house, could understand them. She also proactively took care of the less important matters on my behalf. I was able to proceed without stress or anxiety, despite the fact that I was making a major purchase at a time when I was busy with other things, and in a country with different laws and cultures. Several times during the escrow period, she accompanied me to measure the size of the room for my furniture purchase plan. On the 39th day from the morning I received the information about the open house, I received the key to my new house. My first buying a house in the U.S. was a roller coaster experience, but I was able to proceed with ease thanks to Yui. Thank you so much for all your help!

私達が初めて家を購入するときにとてもお世話になりました。軽い気持ちで家を見に行ったところ、とても気にいる家に出会い、購入を決めましたが、何をしたら良いのか何が必要なのかまったくわかりませんでした。そんな私達のために、何度も時間をとって説明してくれて、書類の準備から手続きすべてを丁寧に進めてくれました。他からもいくつかオファーがあった中私達が購入することができたのも、私達がいかに家を気に入ったかという気持ちを丁寧にセラー側へ伝えてくれたおかげだと思っています。 初めての購入ということで、何度も不安になったり、やっぱり購入はやめようかとも思ったりしましたが、そのたびに私達の気持ちに寄り添って話を聞いて不安を解消してくれました。今では子供が新しいお家大好きと言って喜んで過ごしてくれているので、購入できて本当によかったと思っています。

Yui is very responsible and detailed oriented. She worked really hard to make sure my need is fulfilled and go through the documents with me extensively. She’s also very understanding and patient especially when I need to withdraw my previous offer. I would definitely recommend her to my friends.

She is timely, precise, committing, and kind. My case was so challenging because the area was so competitive but we finally found the best place thanks to her. She has plenty of experience and she shares tips and tricks for your best result. I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a place to live in the area. 正確で素早く、細かいところまでサポートが行き届いています。私の場合はそのエリアの人気が高く、非常に困難でしたが、彼女のおかげで最終的にベストな物件を見つけることができました。経験豊富でいろいろなコツも教えてくださるので助かります。サウスベイ、パロスバーデスエリアでしたら彼女を頼るのが一番です。一度連絡してみることを強くおすすめします。

She was VERY VERY helpful in my desperate situation (which I believe was not her usual work) and went beyond her work to fulfill my needs. THANK YOU SO MUCH I can’t thank her enough!! おそらく管轄外のご依頼。しかも(当時)会った事のない私にまでとても親身になり相談に乗って頂きとてもとても感謝しております!今後益々のご活躍をお祈りしております!(絶対できる技量をお持ちだと思います!)
by Tomomi H.
Yui helped us find a new place to live in. She is very friendly and committed to supporting her clients. Her response was always quick and she was constantly proactive to support us. Although there were four applications, we worked as a team to win this game and finally could be the tenant of the nice house! We really appreciate her! We couldn't have done it without her. Yui speaks Japanese, Chinese, and English! wow! I strongly recommend her. I'm sure she'll be your great supporter and teammate!! 引越し先を探すお手伝いをしていただきました。いくつか譲れない条件があったのですが、Yuiさんは一つひとつの希望条件を丁寧に聞いて下さり、相談にものってくださいました。限られた期間の中でしたが、辛抱強く物件を探して下さり、最終的にとても満足のいく物件を見つけることができました。かなり競争率の高い物件でしたが、Yuiさんが積極的かつ迅速に動いてくださったおかげで、無事契約に至ることができました。ありがとうございました。明るく親しみやすいお人柄のYuiさん。英語、中国語も堪能で、お部屋&お家探しの心強いパートナー&チームメンバーになってくれます!

Quick and smooth communication would be one of the most important factors which differentiate an excellent real estate agent or not, especially under this overheated current market circumstances. And, of course, personal integrity is the foundation of this communication. Yui has both of them.
by Yusaku S.
She is definitely the best Real Estate Agent I've ever met. Since we were looking for a place residing outside of the U.S she contacted us over a different time zone and her generous work made us reach the place we wanted. We love the place where we are at and appreciate all her work finding this place. Thanks a lot, Yui!
