New Jersey Rental Application Template
The New Jersey rental application is used to check a potential tenant’s background before signing a lease. The application benefits the landlord by decreasing the odds of the lessee not paying rent on time while serving as a test to see how serious the applicant may be about renting the space. The landlord may collect a non-refundable fee for processing the applicant’s credit, background, employment, and previous rental history. Once approved, the tenant should be given a lease, and a security deposit should be transferred at the time of authorization (if requested by the landlord). Note that the landlord cannot charge more than one and a half (1.5) months’ rent as a deposit.
