A Connecticut rental application allows a landlord to select the most suitable individual for a residential tenancy by collecting pertinent information and performing background checks. Should the landlord choose to screen tenants, all individuals intent on renting a residential unit will receive an application form to fill out. Personal information, employment and rental history, income, and other important information must be entered into the document. Landlords may charge applicants a fee for the processing of the rental application, including the cost for criminal background checks, credit reports, and the like.
