A Pennsylvania rental application is designed for landlords and property managers to determine whether a lease applicant is deserving of a legally binding rental agreement. The applicant will be asked to submit a comprehensive report of their rental history, banking information, monthly liabilities, vehicles, and pets. Applicants may wish to provide evidence of their income and employment status by attaching a pay stub or statement from their employer. Upon receipt of the completed application, the landlord is authorized to investigate the applicant’s background by performing a credit history and criminal background check.
