Rental Application Forms and Fees

When you find an apartment you like, the first step is to fill out a rental application which asks for sensitive information such as birthdate, social security number, bank account numbers and balances, credit card numbers and balances, and salary. All this information is needed for a housing provider to determine if you are financially qualified to pay the rent. Most application forms are similar. Housing providers generally belong to a property owner's assocation in that area which distribute such forms.
