Leasing Information for Commercial Properties


If you are interested in leasing space, the process begins with our lease application process, which is summarized below.  To start please download the lease application here. Along with the lease application we will need the tenant to include the following items:


  1. Lease Application Fee of $25.00; please make checks out to Pacific Gateway Properties
  2. Your past two years of your personal and business tax returns.
  3. Personal Financial Statement, Please download the form by clicking here.
  4. Business Plan for new business applicants


The application will give us the authorization to run a credit check.  We will review the financial and business information to qualify your application.  We may follow up with additional questions or request additional information.


Upon approval of the lease application the leasing agent will contact the tenant and begin discussing the main points of the lease agreement including the rent, lease term, proposed improvements to the premises, and lease commencement. Once these main points have been established we will prepare a draft lease for the tenant and the tenant's attorney to review.


The leasing process is completed once the Landlord and tenant agree to the lease agreement and have signed the document.  Some remaining steps may require the landlord to complete any work in the premises prior to turning over the space.  Once the landlord has verified that the tenant has liability insurance in place covering the premises and the Landlord, and the utilities have been transferred into the tenant's name, the space will be turned over to the tenant.


If you have any questions please contact us by email at or you may call us directly at (408)-278-7700.

Residential Tenant FAQ:




The first step is the fill out a lease application.  The application will allow us to run a credit check.  “As a rule of thumb”, we require a minimum credit score of 680.  In addition to the lease application, you will need to submit a pay stub or W-2 to verify your monthly income.  Our minimum requirement is a monthly gross salary equal to 2.5X the monthly rent.  That being said, we do evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis to make the final determination.  We consider these standards as guidelines and under certain conditions we could alter our standards (higher or lower) to determine lease application approval.


How are maintenance requests handled?


The best way to report a maintenance request is to submit the request online, thru our online portal, however you may call our maintenance line, which is available 24/7.  Our policy is to return all maintenance requests within 24-hours.  We strive to complete the maintenance request as quickly as possible, but our 24-hour response policy doesn’t mean the issue will be resolved within that time because it all depends on the issue.  However, we keep you informed, and within 24-hours you will be notified of our ongoing efforts to resolve the issue so that you may plan accordingly. 


Are pets allowed?


It depends on the property.  Please send us an inquiry, and include the property address that's of interest, along with the profile of your pet.  We will respond promptly to your inquiry.  If pets are allowed, we typically require a higher security deposit and on a case-by-case basis may require a higher rent to reflect the additional wear and tear and additional oversight expected with the presence of your additional “housemate”.
