Iowa Rental Application Form

An Iowa rental application is employed 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 a prospective tenant, 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.
