Connecticut Residential Lease Agreement
In pursuant to Title 47a, Chapter 830 the landlord and tenant may come to an agreement over the use of occupying residential property for a fixed term.

This will give the landlord the idea of how much the applicant holds in assets as well as they willingness to pay other creditors. If the landlord determines that they are a good fit for the property then the lessor will usually decide upon the security deposit.
