A Montana Rental Application Form is, uniquely amongst these forms, not a legal agreement but rather an application that most landlords will want potential tenants to complete before signing a long term lease. A landlord has the right to charge a nonrefundable fee for this application.
In order to minimize the risk of a landlord signing a long term lease with a tenant who will break their lease, this application will look into an applicant’s financial and rental history, ensuring that they have the financial capabilities to maintain their lease and that they have no problems with previous leases.
In order to prepare for this form, an applicant should bring, or have easy access to, their social security number, pay stubs and the names and contact information for any landlords the applicant wishes to use as references. The tenant should choose landlords that are easy to contact, as an excellent application can help them stand out from other applicants.
