Vermont rental application is used to examine the credentials of lease applicants in order to determine whether they should be approved for a residential tenancy agreement. Prospective tenants who are interested in a rental space will often have to submit a rental application to state their employment history, banking details, current living situation, and the contact information of former landlords. The data collected in the application, in combination with any background checks conducted by the landlord, enables the landlord to lock down a suitable candidate for tenancy.
