Before having someone move into the rented premises, it is very important for a landlord to make sure he/she is choosing a tenant suitable for the property. In order for a landlord to make sure that he/she is making an appropriate decision a Rental Application should be filled out. This form allows the landlord to get a substantial amount of information on the tenant. Getting the proper information will allow the landlord to get a good idea of where the tenant is financially in regard to renting the property.

Each state has specific rental application criteria. In almost every state, an applicant must provide some type of permission to the landlord to perform any kind of background screening.

The ezLandlordForms’ Rental Application meets the needs of the states that do not allow a landlord to request the marital status of an applicant. This very confidential form includes personal information about the tenant as well as previous rental history. The Rental Application allows the applicant to list all of the proposed occupants as well as any pets that are presumed to live on the premises. This form also includes information on the prospective tenant’s financial information including employment, Income, and credit information.

IMPORTANT: The Rental Application offers the option for e-signature. To e-mail this form please download the document, then attach it to your e-mail. This form can not be e-mailed from the website
