A North Dakota Rental Application Form is an extremely common form, consisting primarily of a credit check for the tenant and contacting any of their former landlords.
A credit check ensures that the tenant has a good financial history and has no large outstanding debts that could cause them to fail to pay their rent. Contacting former landlords and references ensures that they will be a good tenant, and that they’ve not significantly damaged other properties they’ve inhabited or been evicted in the past.
This not only allows the landlord to make sure any applicants will be satisfactory tenants, but also allows potential tenants who have good credit and rental history to draw attention to it, so they will be more likely to be selected to be a tenant.
A Rental Application Form typically requires bank statements, credit card statements, prior addresses and the contact information of any former landlords the applicant wishes to use as references.
