The Connecticut rental application is used by landlords to screen a tenant before allowing the use of property and signing a rental contract.
Verifying a Tenant
The most important aspects to verify with a new tenant are;
Social Security Number (xxx-xx-xxxx)
Driver’s License No.
Pets (if any)
Checking and Savings Bank Accounts – Check the balances
All Occupants of the Residential Unit
The landlord is allowed to charge a non-refundable fee and has the option to allow the fee to be contributed towards the Security Deposit or first (1st) months’ rental payment. The landlord should act as swiftly as possible in order not to lose a qualified tenant to another residence.
