Free Rental Application (Print & Handwrite In)

Good (and profitable) property management starts with vigorous tenant screening, which starts right here with collecting rental applications from all applicants. This comprehensive two-page rental application includes information on the applicant's income, employment, pets, references and other occupants, just to name a few. It also inquires about bankruptcies, judgments, evictions and other red flags from an applicant's past. Nor does it stop there - to properly screen tenants you'll want to contact references, employers and former landlords, and run credit and criminal background checks, which this rental application includes authorization to do.

The information that will be returned to you in this form will be extremely sensitive and private, so take care when storing it, and be sure to comply with all applicable privacy laws when collecting and reviewing this information.
