How to Compare Free Rental Application Forms

Using a free rental application is something that a lot of landlords do with regularity. They go online to a generic form website and pull up a free rental application. While this may be the easiest and quickest route to take, it may not always be in your best interest. If you are going to do this, you need to make sure that you get one of the highest quality forms available. Here are a few tips for comparing free rental application forms. 


While you are getting a generic form, you need to make sure that you get one of the more detailed ones available. You need to make sure that it has all of the information that you need out of your potential tenants. You need all of the usual information including their name, current address, phone number, and employment information. You will always want to make sure that you have a place for them to put references. 

When comparing application forms, you want to make sure that you find one that fits your specific needs. You do not want it to be too monotonous, but you want it to be thorough at the same time. Some of the most important information to include is:

  • Name of all persons on lease and separate space for number of tenants
  • Address, current and former for five years
  • Social Security Number
  • Employer information, name address, phone and income amount
  • References, typically three references are used
