New Mexico Rental Application

The New Mexico rental application form is a document that landlords use to collect the personal and financial information of prospective tenants for screening purposes. Individuals interested in renting from the landlord will be required to fill out, sign, and return the form. In the form, the potential tenant will be asked to provide their personal information (including SSN), rental history, employment information, and references. The landlord will usually review multiple applications before selecting a tenant to fill the occupancy. It is common practice for applicants to be charged an application fee when submitting the document for consideration.
