Montana Rental Application Template
The Montana rental application is used by a landlord or sublessor to screen any potential tenants for a rental property. The form allows the landlord to view the tenant’s employment history and status along with their rental and credit history to help them determine if the applicant is honest and financially secure. In addition to the rental application, the landlord should request the new tenant to pay a security deposit, which would typically be the equivalent of one (1) month’s rent but may be any amount deemed reasonable by the landlord. If the property remains damage-free at the end of the lease, it is good practice for the landlord to reimburse the tenant the cost of the security deposit as soon as possible; the deposit must be returned within (10) days, or within thirty (30) days if the landlord deducts from the deposit to cover the cost of damages (§ 70-25-202).
- If the landlord charges the tenant a Security Deposit, the move-in checklist must be attached to the lease as an addendum.
