Nebraska Rental Application | PDF – MS Word
A Nebraska rental application is a way for a landlord, property manager or sublessor to screen any potential tenants before entering into a binding real estate contract. The most important areas of verification are the following;
- Weekly or monthly income
- Time at current and previous jobs
- Speaking with previous landlords
- Credit report
- Background check
After a thorough investigation of the tenant’s information, the lessor will be able to decide if a lease agreement is suitable. At the lessor’s sole discretion, he or she may charge a fee for providing this service.
Maximum Application Fee ($)
There is no Nebraska law that limits how much a landlord can charge a tenant for an application fee. However, the landlord may not charge more than $10 to create a rental agreement for administrative fees (§ 69-2110(1)(a)).
