Minnesota Rental Application Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Minnesota Rental Application Form provides a valuable service to landlords and property managers seeking tenants to rent a residential property. A property manager may be overwhelmed with the number of inquiries regarding an available property, especially if it is particularly affordable, in a good area, or otherwise generally desired by tenants. The benefit of having an available preset form is simple. It will gather all the information that the rental applicant needs to present, testify that the information is accurate, and consent to the necessary reference, background, and credit checks.

Application Fee (§ 504B.173) – No limit, however, the landlord must provide receipts for screening service charges and return any unspent funds to the applicant.

Security Deposit (§ 504B.178) – No state limit on security deposits.
