A Mississippi Rental Application Form is, as the name suggests, not a legal agreement but a form that allows a landlord to check a potential tenant for issues with previous landlords, or financial problems that may make the tenant unable to uphold the lease. It is fairly commonly used, especially before signing a long term lease.
Rental Application Forms are primarily used to protect landlords from problematic tenants, checking into an applicant’s rental and financial history, but they can also be useful for a tenant. Any worthwhile property will have multiple applicants, and a potential tenant who has an excellent rental history can use a Rental Application Form to stand out from less qualified applicants.
In order to prepare for a Rental Application Form, an applicant should have easy access to their social security number, proof of work such as pay stubs and the names and contact information for any former landlords they wish to use as references.
