New Hampshire Rental Application Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The New Hampshire Rental Application Form is used, by property managers and property owners, to screen through rental applicants to find ideal tenants. The tenant will provide their rental and employment histories and, in many cases, approve a background check. This application also provides applicants with a sense of safety. After all, a sizeable amount of personal information ranging from one’s identity to one’s close family members can be revealed in a background check. When divulging such information an applicant wants to be sure their information will be respected and they will not be discriminated against. While this will not guarantee against the actions of a disgruntled applicant, the use of a written application will demonstrate that an office takes the applicant’s information seriously and will base their decision on the same information across applications.

Application Fee (No Statute) – Not mentioned in State law; no limit.

Security Deposit (RSA 540-A:6) – The most that a landlord can demand for a deposit is one (1) month’s rent or one hundred dollars ($100), whichever is greater.
