An Illinois rental application allows a landlord to gather information on potential tenants to evaluate their eligibility for a residential tenancy agreement. This form is given to each prospective tenant, who must then complete it in its entirety and pay an application fee. The fee covers the costs of background checks, which will reveal the tenant’s criminal, rental, and credit history. The application form includes information such as references, current residence, employment information, and income. The landlord will accept the most suitable tenant based on all the data collected.
