An Ohio Rental Application Form is a type of form used to screen potential tenants, to ensure they will be a good tenant and will be able to pay their rent on time and in full. Typically a rental application will check on the tenants credit score, rental history, employment history and background. A landlord in Ohio may charge a nonrefundable fee for this application at their discretion.
In order to be prepared for this application a tenant should have, or know, their credit card statements, pay stubs, social security number and the names and numbers of any previous landlords they wish to use as references. In order to ensure success, a tenant should not only use landlords who will be complimentary but who will also be reasonably easy to get a hold of. A good application can allow an applicant to stand out in comparison to other applicants
