A Louisiana rental application is a tool for landlords to screen individuals applying for residential tenancy before accepting the most suitable candidate as a tenant. All prospective tenants will have to complete a rental application, which will be reviewed by the landlord and verified by background checks. Often a landlord will charge an application fee to applicants to cover the costs of performing said background checks. The landlord is mostly interested in the prospective tenant’s rental history, employment and income information, any instances of bankruptcy, and personal references that can vouch for the individual’s character.
