Rental Forms are completed by prospective tenants looking to lease property. They are used by the property owners to screen the tenants in order to select the ones that suit them best.

Real Estate Forms, specifically, are used by owners who have a vacant room, apartment, house, or even a commercial property and want to make a profit of it. The goal of the form is to get the background information on the tenant. The landlords are eager to screen their tenants well since most problems they face can in principle be eliminated through the process of screening. This process is quite transparent and systematic. Thanks to this process, the tenants have an impression to be treated in a fair way. Every tenant submits a rental application form, which authorizes the landlord to perform a credit check on the potential tenant. A credit report and criminal history check are part of the process as well. The tenants release their permission for the background check by signing the form.

You are free to use our rental forms if you are applying to rent out a home or wish to lease your property. You will find a multitude of free rental forms for landlords and tenants.

Rental Forms and Notices

Rental property forms are designed to help the landlord, property manager and tenants to take control over the area that used to be the domain of lawyers and notaries, saving money on the way. There are a number of forms and notices that deal with various issues. The most sought after in real estate are the following ones:

1. Rental Applications

Rental applications are used by the owners or property managers to gather information on potential renters. Naturally, landlords can rent their property to tenants without obtaining a rental application, but it serves as extra protection.

2. Tenant Reference Letters 

These are letters of confidence from the previous landlord to the new one confirming the information the tenants say about themselves is true, common in cases when the individuals have a poor credit score.

3. Lease Agreements 

Lease agreements are vital legal documents completed prior to renting property to a tenant. It is a binding contract between the landlord and the tenant, which covers the renting of property for long periods of time (at least 12 months).

6. Rental Inspection Checklists

These checklists are tools employed by landlords or property managers to ensure that rental property is in order before and after the tenant's occupation. The inspection itself involves a thorough visual check of the property from the inside and outside.

10. Notice of Intent to Vacate 

A notice of intent to vacate is a letter the tenant addresses to the landlord with an intention to give the owner notice that the renter will be moving out of the property. Usually, the renters plan their move around the renewal time of their lease.

11. 30-Day Notice

These are warning letters either from a landlord to a tenant asking them to vacate the premises within 30 days or a letter from the tenant to the landlord informing the owner of a change in the terms of their tenancy. It is common with a month-to-month lease.
