An Iowa rental application is a form used by landlords to gather information from potential tenants in order to find the most suitable candidate for residential real estate tenancy. This document contains a number of sections that must be completed by prospective tenants, including their personal information, rental history, current employer, monthly income, banking information, and personal references. Furthermore, by signing a rental application, the applicant gives the landlord license to look into their criminal, rental, and credit history.
