Idaho Rental Application
A landlord is highly recommended to utilize the Idaho rental application for any type of lease, as it will boost the landlord’s confidence in knowing their potential tenant has accepted only the most trustworthy and honest individual(s) on the property. With this document, the landlord can view the applying tenant’s criminal (background), employment, rental, and credit history. The property owner/manager may also ask the applying tenant to pay for the look-up even if the landlord doesn’t accept the applying tenant into the property (fee usually is anywhere from $10 to $100).
Along with this verification, for security purposes the landlord should ask for a security deposit, which is typically equivalent to one (1) months’ rent. With the security deposit, it would cover any non-accidental or accidental damage to the property. If the tenant ends the lease with no damage to the property, it is common practice for the landlord to refund the tenant the cost of the security deposit (Under State law Section 6-321 the landlord must return the deposit within twenty one (21) days unless the lease states otherwise with a maximum of thirty (30) days).
