Here’s how to rent an apartment or house from Mason Management.

Rental Process and Procedures
1. Take a look at our rental listings.
You can obtain a copy of our listings:
  • From our office at 2514 Santa Clara Avenue, in Alameda, CA.
    We’re open 9 AM – 6 PM Monday through Friday, and 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM Saturdays.
    We also have a rental listings box outside the building for after hours pick up.
  • By FAX, by calling 510-522-8074.
  • At our website under Rental Listings
2. Drive by the properties you’re interested in.
We’ve found it’s always good to take a look at the neighborhood and building of a property that you might want to rent BEFORE you see the inside.

We ask that in your process of looking, please do not disturb the tenants of the apartment or building.

3. Set up a showing with us.
Once you’ve decided on the properties that you’d like to see, make an appointment with one of our Rental Agents for a showing of the properties. We can usually set up 3-4 showings at one time, so that you can see them all at once.

You can set up showing appointments by calling us at 510-522-8074 or stopping by our office at 2514 Santa Clara Avenue, in Alameda, CA.

4. Apply for a property.
Once you’ve decided on the property that you’d like to rent, you need to fill out a Rental Application*.

Each proposed tenant 18 years or older will need to complete an application.

There is a $20 fee for each application, which covers credit check and application processing.

We also require the following additional materials:

  • A copy of your driver’s license or photo identification card
  • Proof of employment (either a recent paycheck stub, a copy of your most recent Income Tax Return if self-employed, or a letter of hire from your employer).

*Rental Application is in .PDF format.
Please download a free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view Application.

5. Rent the property.
Once your application is approved, you sign a Rental Agreement and usually pay first month’s rent, security deposit, and rental fee. Payments must be made by either Cashier’s Check or Money Order.

Rental fees are equal to 30% of one month’s rent.

EXAMPLE:
Rent: $1000
Security Deposit: $1200
Rental Fee: $300
Total Move-in $2500
Security deposits vary and may be increased if pets are accepted.
