Ohio Rental Application Form

Updated April 14, 2023

An Ohio rental application is a form that is completed by an applicant seeking to rent a property from a landlord. The tenant will enter their personal and employment information while commonly paying a non-refundable fee to the landlord. The landlord will process the application and, if approved, the tenant will be issued a lease to sign.


  • Application Fee – There is no limit for an application fee in Ohio, they are also non-refundable (no statute).
  • Security Deposit – There is no limit mentioned in state statutes; however, if a tenant maintains possession of a property for more than six (6) months, the landlord must pay the tenant 5% interest annually if the deposit was more than $50 or one month’s rent (§ 5321.16(a)).
