Checking Out Keys
To view a property, please come to our office with a government issued picture ID (preferably a driver’s license) of which we will make a copy. Keys can be checked out Monday-Friday from 10 am – 3:30 pm and must be returned no later than 4:30 pm. On Saturdays keys can be checked out from 10 am- 12:30 pm and returned no later than 1:30 pm. We do require a key deposit of $20 (cash or credit card) which will be returned to you upon return of the key(s).
Please note that we cannot “hold” any rentals for any reason. If you are interested in a unit, please complete the application process and turn in the security deposit as quickly as possible, as many of our rental units are rented out very quickly.
Gold Medal Property Management Application Process
It is easy to apply to rent any of the available Gold Metal Property Management rentals. Once you have found the property you want to rent, you may apply online on our website or in person at our office. The application fee is $30 for each individual 18 years or older. Fees can be paid with cash, money order, or by credit card. Each applicant will need to provide one month’s proof of income, a copy of a valid government issued ID card and acknowledge of receipt of our Rental Criteria & Guidelines as well as the Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services Form (IABS).
Credit Reports & Background Checks
Gold Medal Property Management will conduct a thorough credit report and background check on all adults listed on the leasing application.
Credit Bureau reports and credit scores indicating evictions, poor rental history, unpaid accounts, or a history of unsatisfactory rental accounts can result in disapproval of the rental application. If you have any unsatisfactory rental accounts and show proof of payment, we will consider approving your application. Additional security deposit may be required based on the results of the background check. Any criminal background is taken on a case-by-base basis.
Unsatisfactory background checks may also lead to a disapproval of the rental application. For example, registered sex offenders will not be approved.
Sorry, we do not accept Military Waivers.
Families, Roommates, and Children
Gold Medal is proud to provide equal opportunity housing to all individuals regardless of sex, race, marital status, or sexual preference. We rent to qualified individuals, roommates, and families with or without children. Each roommate/spouse must undergo the full credit history and background check. Any children living in the home must be listed as occupants on the lease, and children 18 and older must undergo the background check and pay the application fee.
Gold Medal Property management does permit pets on certain properties if the property’s owner has approved of pets in their rental home. Approved pets include dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, reptiles, birds and fish.
The pet fee per animal is $200 for up to 25 lbs and $300 for over 25 lbs. Certain aggressive breeds of dogs are prohibited at all times, including Pit Bulls, Dobermans, Mastiffs, Akitas, Rottweilers, Siberian Huskies, Staffordshire Terriers, Chow Chows, wolf hybrids and Great Danes.

Prior to introducing a pet to your rental home, you must contact the Gold Medal Property Management office and inform us of the proposed pet and pay the pet fee. The pet violation fee is $100 for the first day and $10 each day thereafter until the pet is removed and this has been verified by a member of the Gold Medal Property Management Staff.
Completing Your Lease
Once your rental application is approved, you have up to 3 business days to come into our office and sign your lease. The lease information section of the application will list the move-in day and any pro-rated rent due plus the full security deposit. Please sign your lease as soon as possible in order to guarantee your move in date/move-in inspection time. The Gold Medal Property Management staff will also provide you with utility information so you can arrange to have your utilities on in time for your move in date & move in inspection. You’ll want to have the utilities on for your inspection so that you can ensure all utilities/appliances in the home are working properly at move in.
Move-In Walk Through
The move-in walk through appointment is required for the protection of both parties. The purpose of the inspection is to document any problems with the unit so that you will not be responsible for them when you move out. Please ensure that all utilities are on and functioning in time for the move-in inspection. During the walk through you and a Gold Medal Property Management staff member will conduct a detailed survey of the rental and document any issues. You will be given a copy of the walk through document for your records. Also, you will be given the keys to your new rental unit during the walk through.
Paying Your Rent
All rent payments are due by the first of each month. Late fees start after the 3rd day of the month. You may pay instantly online through our convenient website portal using your bank account information (you will need your back account number and routing number to set up the payment) or you can pay via money order at our office. Gold Medal has a convenient after hours payment drop at our office should you need it.
As a thank you for paying on or before the first of the month, all tenants paying on time are automatically entered into our monthly prize drawing. Once a month we select a name from the list of qualified tenants and award a gift card/certificate to an area business/restaurant.
If you pay your rent late, you will be assessed a late payment fee. Please refer to your lease for a description of the late payment fees and processes.
