An Arizona rental application enables a landlord to determine the eligibility of all prospective tenants before selecting an applicant for residential tenancy. This form is comprised of a number of sections that will help the landlord obtain pertinent information on each applicant. Some of the sections on the application form include current employer, income amount, current and previous residence, personal references, vehicle and pet information, and criminal history. By signing this document, each applicant is authorizing the landlord to perform any necessary background checks on them.
