A Minnesota rental application legally permits a property manager or owner to check and verify a person’s credit, leasing history, background, and employment (including income) to qualify for a residential lease agreement. The landlord may accept a non-refundable fee for performing this service which also shows a level of real interest by the applicant. Although, it is advised for the property owner to not take more than a couple of days to verify all the sources as the tenant could find another place to live.
