The Puerto Rico Rental Application Form is the only form on this page that is not a legal agreement. It is instead a type of application a landlord can request any potential tenants complete before signing a long term lease. This allows to a landlord to look into an applicants rental and financial background, in order to ensure they will abide by the terms of the lease for its entirety. A landlord has the right to charge a nonrefundable fee for this kind of application.
A Rental Application Form will usually want to look into a tenants financial history, by checking their credit score and getting proof of work, and into their rental history, by checking with previous landlords. In order to prepare for this, an applicant should have easy access to their social security number, pay stubs and the names and contact information for any previous landlords they wish to use as a reference.
While this form is primarily designed to protect landlords, it can also be useful for tenants. Most good properties will have multiple applicants and an exemplary application can help the applicant secure the property over less qualified applicants.
