Washington Rental Application Template
The Washington rental application is a screening document used by landlords to verify an individual’s income, employment status, rental history, and other background information. The landlord has the option of digging deeper into the potential tenant’s background by viewing any liabilities, bank account balances, and requesting references such as previous property owners or managers that have had experience with the individual. Gathering this information will help the landlord make a decision regarding the applicant’s eligibility for tenancy. The landlord is allowed to request a non-refundable fee for accepting the rental application.
Application Fee (§ 59.18.257(1)(b)) – Landlords may charge an application fee only for costs incurred in obtaining screening reports.
