The Nebraska Rental Application Form is the only document on this form that is not a lease, but rather an application a landlord will typically want a tenant to complete before signing a long term lease. As eviction can be a long and difficult process, landlords only wish to sign leases with tenants who they are sure will maintain the lease, and thus use this kind of form to screen out problematic tenants.
While it is primarily used to protect landlords, a good rental application form can also help a tenant secure a good property, as any worthwhile property will have multiple applicants. In order to be prepared for a Rental Application Form, a tenant should bring their social security number, pay stubs and the names and contact information for any previous landlords they wish to use as references. A landlord has the right to charge a nonrefundable fee for this application.
