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.
