The Minnesota residential rental application allows landlords to assess the eligibility of prospective tenants by collecting their personal and financial information. The applicant will be required to enter their current employer/income, rental history, co-tenants, and pets. Furthermore, by signing the application form, the tenant gives the landlord permission to carry out a credit and background check. After the applicant returns the completed application to the landlord and pays the application fee (if required), the landlord will review their information and determine their suitability as a tenant.
