Create a high quality document online now!

A New Jersey rental application is used by landlords to verify their applicants when applying for tenancy. The landlord will use the personal information provided by the tenant to search public records. The landlord has the right to charge a non-refundable fee and request other documents to prove income (e.g. tax returns, pay stubs, etc.).


  • Application Fee – There is no limit mandated by law (no statute).
  • Security Deposit – Maximum deposit amount is one and a half (1.5) months’ rent for the first year. After the first year, the landlord may request up to an additional ten percent (10%) of the initial amount as a further deposit (§ 46:8-21.2).
