Decompressing from the day and thinking about an application. Person is a female who can only communicate in Spanish. We had been texting back and forth to set up the visit to the open house today and she arrives with an older lady who also speaks no English. She's dressed in a very short skirt and tight fitting outfit and my first impression was this was a guy dressed up like a woman and the weird thing is that I suspect she's the former tenant who lived there. He worked at Walmart and so does she. First off, I don't understand how you can be at Walmart and not speak English. The former tenant was a perfect tenant but up and moved suddenly and always came off as if he was gay.

She wanted me to fill out the application for her because she couldn't read English but I declined and told her to email it. This is the weirdest situation I've been in and I suspect it's the former tenant. I've no clue as to what's going on here. --172.58.xxx.xx

Are we legally allowed to put on the app that it must be filled out IN ENGLISH?

Because I have had someone answer my pre-screening questions in Spanish (on email) more than once. I have no idea why someone would do that since they understood the questions which I obviously had sent them in English? --72.188.xxx.xx

This without question is a weird situation. Why did I think it was a guy dressed as woman? He/she was way over dressed for viewing an apartment while the older woman was a dumpy type. When I say way over dressed, I mean dressed up a dress far too short and tight--the way guys dressing up as women do to over compensate; like that guy Ru Paul. My very first impression at first glance was this was a guy and then I begin to suspect it was the former tenant. If I'm correct, I've no clue why he'd be doing something like this. I gave him/her an app and he/she was worried that someone else would get the apartment. They're correct in that worry. --207.172.xx.xxx

When people take the app with them to fill out, I let them know that they can text me when they're ready. If I'm available, I'll meet them and pick it up. If I'm not available, they can mail it in to the PO box on the top of the page.

That right there has helped me numerous times.

Sometimes I'm available to pick it up, sometimes they have to mail it in. :) --50.32.xxx.xxx

She wants you to fill out the application for her, but she works at Walmart...she had to fill out an app to get a job there in the past and Walmart certainly didn't agree to fill it in for her. None of it makes sense. --72.188.xxx.xx

On top of that, he/she gave me a W-2 from Walmart with $36,000 of wages and a current paystub. I don't know if they're false or not, but out of curiosity, I can sort that if I have the time. How are you going to be working at Walmart in the sort of capacity that commands $ 36K and not speak English? I know all of the local Walmarts here and that makes no sense at all. --207.172.xx.xxx

You got a w-2? That's kind of weird. Did you get an actual app? --50.32.xxx.xxx




Transvestite (by GKARL [PA]) Posted on: Feb 25, 2018 6:40 PM
Message:

No I didn't get the app. I told her to bring the W-2 and paystub with her when communicating in an effort to pre-qualify. While there, I gave her the app and she wanted me to fill it, I just said I couldn't and she'd need to get with an english speaker to complete and return by e-mail.

The W-2 and paystub may be fake or if they're real, she's faking it in some way. Who makes 36K at Walmart without being at a higher level? And if you're at a higher level, how is it that you can't speak English? I'm going to search FB on her just out of curiosity. --207.172.xx.xxx

This needs to go under the thread of weirdest things that have happened to you as a LL. Especially since you suspect it is a former tenant.

Personally, I don't care what tenants do in their personal life as long as it isn't illegal. BUT it might be something I don't want to deal with in my unit and I would find a way to avoid renting to someone that has such an obvious issue.

Your job is to give apps to those that want and accept them for processing, not fill them out. I like NE solution of having them mailed because you are "busy". Hopefully, someone better comes along in the mean time. My standard response to someone I feel is less than desirable is "there are a couple of people in front of you, but I have nothing definite yet, I will put you in the line if the others fall through.

Maybe they are role playing for giggles or Fair Housing testers trying to trap you.

Besides the adam's apple, another tell tale, from what I've heard, a male's two middle fingers are not the same length. One is noticeably longer than the other. In females, the middle two fingers are much closer to identical in length.

I think the issue here is that you have to verify identity. It sounds like it could be identity theft, especially since you think it might be an old tenant using a different name.

The Walmart documents for someone who doesn't speak English is hinky. Although maybe Walmart hires dock workers or warehouse workers who don't speak English?

How are you going to run a credit report if you are unsure of the identity of the applicant?

Right off hand, I can't think of any negatives about renting to a transvestite, so that wouldn't be an issue for me. But I need to know who it is I am renting to. --174.216.xx.xx

Well, "Ru Paul" didn't get an application in and it looks like I've got 2 of my 3 vacancies rented. Good point on the credit and SSN. I doubt that would change, but I don't have time to sort and will move on. That one is a top entry in the annals of strange things. --207.172.xx.xxx

I don't see how the "transvestite or not" stuff really matters here. (And people thinking that they can do some quick physical test for an Adam's Apple or finger length are a bit insane if they think it matters here.)

All that matters is whether or not it is an ex-tenant trying to reapply. And won't that be easily seen when they put their SSN on the application?

Just treat like any other applicant and screen properly. Who cares if it was a "man dressed as a woman" or not?

LOL Shaun.

I would be most concerned about the person who wanted you to fill out the application for her. How inept is that? What would they be like as a resident?

I've had a number of "ESL" applicants fill them out...they might have some questions about what things mean, and take awhile to fill it out, but all of them have been have been able to fill out an application in English themselves.
