"Rental Application Form" - Arkansas

What Is an Arkansas Rental Application?

An Arkansas Rental Application is a document completed by individuals who apply for a rental to verify their legitimacy. Since finding the right tenant can be a headache for the property manager or landlord, an application that briefly describes the potential tenant and allows the tenant screening can help separate the best applicant from the rest. It usually contains the following details:

  • Location of the rental unit;
  • Applicant's details - full name, driver's license number, birth date, contact information, and previous address;
  • Names of the additional occupants, including minors;
  • Pets that will live in the rental unit and their description;
  • Employment information - the name of the employer and the applicant's job title;
  • Income details - you may indicate your monthly salary or attach bank statements;
  • Emergency contacts and personal references;
  • Background details - state if you have ever filed for bankruptcy, refused to pay rent when due, have been evicted from a tenancy or convicted of a crime;
  • Signature of the applicant which gives the landlord or property manager an authorization to verify the statements in the application.

Arkansas Rental Application Fee

When you sign an Arkansas Rental Application form and present it to the landlord, you give them consent to run a background check and agree to pay an application fee. Each landlord is able to charge applicants the price of the background check, usually done by screening companies. The screening process includes an examination of a credit report, reviewing the criminal history, and verifying the rental history of the prospective tenant.

There is no maximum limit on application fees in the State of Arkansas, and this money is nonrefundable, even if the application is denied unless the parties agree otherwise. It is recommended to charge between $30-50 for a fee - a tenant screening report usually costs this amount. Do not use application fees as a profit center. If the landlord accepts multiple applications for the same unit and does not proceed with a screening process, the money must be returned to the applicant.
