The Massachusetts rental application can be used by landlords to check and verify the credentials of commercial and residential tenants before signing a binding rental contract. There may be a non-refundable fee associated with the application depending upon the property manager/owner. After the review has been made, the landlord will have to decide whether to accept the tenant and how much to charge for their security deposit (if any).
