New York Rental Application Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The New York Rental Application is a legal document that, after the owner/landlord/management company has had an opportunity to review the applicant’s information, check references and  possibly, do a background check, may then enter into an agreement to rent an apartment or residential property for an agreed amount of time between the parties. This particular form is less extensive than most documents therefore taking less time to complete by the applicant and is more direct with regard to needed information to expedite the application process. As well, in the event the applicant does not have enough credit to check yet may still appear to be a reliable tenant, this form will also provide a brief a “Guarantor Rider” so that the applicant would have an opportunity to enter into the agreement with a co-signer if needed. If this is the case, notarization will be required on the rider application. If any of the parties are uncertain about what they are preparing to sign, they may wish to consult with a knowledgeable attorney.
