The South Carolina Rental Application Form is a form that allows a landlord to screen potential tenants for financial issues or problems with previous landlords, to ensure that all tenants will be able to maintain their lease for its entirety. A landlord has the right to charge a nonrefundable fee for this application.
No landlord wants to go through the difficult and expensive process of eviction, so most will want to know as much about their potential tenants’ renting history before approving them. Similarly a potential tenant with a pristine renting history might appreciate the chance to stand out from other applicants.
Most rental application forms will look at a applicant’s rental history, credit score, work history and criminal background. As such, to be prepared for it, an applicant should bring, or 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 references. It is highly suggested that the references be easy to contact.
