Screening new tenants for your rental property? Then our sample rental application form will help you choose the perfect tenant for your lease.
While most of the form details are self explanatory, there are a few important ones that you should pay particular attention to:
Duration of Stay at Current Address - If they have been staying for less than 6 months, is there a good reason for them to move (change of school, new job etc.)? If no, they might not be stable tenants or have problems getting along with their current landlord and neighbors.
Current Landlord Contacts - This is helpful you want to contact their landlord for references and recommendations. To save time and effort, you can just call up the landlords of shortlisted applicants.
Details of Occupants Living Together - This will clue you on how long they may be staying and whether your rental property is suitable for their living needs. In general, a married couple with kids are more likely be long term tenants vs a single person who lives by himself.
*While we make every effort to ensure that our forms are helpful, you must edit them according to your personal needs and local landlord tenant laws. Always seek legal advice when in doubt.
