North Carolina Rental Application | PDF
A North Carolina rental application is a legal document that allows a landlord, property manager, or real estate agent (including realtors) to research a potential tenant’s credit and references. The verification may only begin upon the signature of the tenant, and the party providing this service is entitled to charge a nonrefundable fee at their sole discretion.
It takes at its longest a few days to complete and others it is as quick as looking up the person’s credit score which can take about an hour if done online. The person being verified must provide their Social Security Number, previous addresses, and references in order for this process to be completed.
