California Rental Application | PDF – MS Word
A California rental application can be downloaded by a landlord and completed by a potential lessee to check and verify their credit, background, employment, and previous rental history. This will give any property owner enough information about the person’s past to judge whether it is a good idea to rent to them. After the application is completed, the landlord can review it and see if the prospective tenant is financially stable and has a decent rental track record.
The application fees can be no more than $30 per applicant (CIV 1950.6(b))
The process should not take more than a few days, and when a decision has been made, the tenant will be notified if they were approved and when the lease will be ready for signature.
