A Michigan rental application form is used by landlords to obtain personal and financial information from potential tenants prior to accepting them for tenancy and signing a lease. The applicant will be required to provide their banking information, employment history, rental history, and current income. Additionally, the individual must disclose any co-tenants, pets, and vehicles. By filling out and signing the form, the applicant permits the landlord to conduct a full background check on them. The landlord will often charge a fee to cover the expenses associated with making the credit check.
