Successful property management begins with good documentation, and for rental properties this starts with a rental application. A rental application lets you organize and evaluate applicants for your property, and to use the information provided to run credit and background checks on those people. You can then use all of this information to make an informed decision when it comes time to select tenants who you hope will pay rent promptly and take care of the property. A well-crafted application can also shield you from claims that you selected applicants for improper and discriminatory reasons, as well as assure your tenants that they won't be asked unnecessary or illegal questions.
