An Ohio rental application is used by landlords and property managers to collect personal information from lease applicants and request authorization to perform a background check. The data provided in the rental application assists landlords in avoiding problematic tenants who have bad credit or a poor history with other lessors. To verify the applicant’s financial information, the landlord should contact the applicant’s current employer and make other queries necessary to confirm the income sources mentioned in the application.
