Minnesota Rental Application
The Minnesota rental application is a form that allows a potential tenant to input their information and authorize to grant the landlord permission to view their credit information and any other background references. The landlord is capable of accepting a non-refundable fee for performing the service, as well as making sure that the potential lessee is serious about renting the premises.
The landlord should accept a Security Deposit at the time of lease signing to further safeguard their position. In Minnesota a landlord may charge as much as satisfactory, Statute 504b.178, but is usually equivalent to one (1) month’s rent.
