A Kansas rental application is designed to help landlords of residential property choose the most acceptable tenant by gathering pertinent rental information from each lease applicant. Prospective tenants will have to complete the entire form and sign it to authorize the landlord to perform background checks. Background checks usually cost a small fee, so the landlord will often charge each lease candidate who applies for the rental unit. By examining each prospective tenant’s personal information, employment and income information, and rental history, a landlord will be able to ascertain the most eligible individual for tenancy.
