A Florida rental application is a form provided to applicants of residential property to enable the landlord to collect pertinent information on prospective tenants, ensuring that they rent their property to a suitable individual. The rental application form will ask for the prospective tenants personal information, their past and present rental situations, their current employer and income, their credit history, and references. The background check consent and acknowledgment section allows the landlord to obtain a credit report, criminal background check, and to perform any other inquiries. Although it is not mentioned in state statutes, landlords may collect an application fee in order to perform the required background checks on applicants.
