Illinois Rental Application Form

Updated April 14, 2023

An Illinois rental application is used when a property manager or landlord must gather information regarding viable applicants for a rental property. Candidates will need to be prepared ahead of time to ensure that the information they submit is accurate. In addition, they must be prepared to sign a consent line to give the landlord or property manager permission to run a background and credit check. It should be noted that a tenant can be held responsible if it is found during such checks that any information provided on such an application is false.


  • Application Fee – The state of Illinois does not limit the amount that can be requested from rental applicants (no statute).
  • Security Deposit – Landlords are permitted to charge any amount as a security deposit (no statute).
