A Kansas rental application is designed to help landlords of residential property to choose the most acceptable tenant by gathering pertinent rental information on all prospective tenants. Each applicant will have to complete the entire form and authorize the landlord to perform background checks. Background checks often cost the landlord money; therefore, they will often charge applicants a small fee for applying for the rental unit. By learning each prospective tenant’s personal information, employment and income information, and rental history, a landlord will be able to ascertain who might be the most eligible individual for tenancy.
