An applicant for residency in Minnesota will need to obtain a rental/lease application form when looking for housing. The landowner will typically request a non-refundable fee to process the application and investigate the applicant's credit report, background check, employment history, and salary.
Application fee - There are no limitations on the costs that may be billed to the applicant. In any case, the property manager is required to provide the applicant with receipts for the screening administration fees and return any unused funds (504B.173).
Security Deposit - There is no restriction on how much the Initial Deposit can be but landlords shouldn’t charge too much due to the risk of scaring applicants away (§ 504B.178).
Landlords, property managers, and property management businesses in Minnesota are protected against claims of discrimination.
Minnesota rental applications assist Minnesota property managers and property management organizations in screening potential tenants.
Minnesota landlords, rental property owners, and real estate owners can use Minnesota rental applications to see if a renter is a good fit for their Minnesota lease agreement.
If a tenant disappears or is unable to pay the rent, Minnesota rental applications give contact information and references.
The Minnesota Screening application form will contain the following information.
Applicant's full name
Home phone number, cell phone number, and/or work phone number
Date of birth
Social security number
Driver's license number (or any government-issued ID)
You should also include a few critical details regarding the rental property within this area, or directly above or below it. You should include not just the address and unit number but also information about the fees and rent. Make a spot for the monthly rent, security deposit, up-front expenditures, and pet fees to be written in.

Supervisor's name and phone number

The signature section completes any rental application form. Begin by listing the fees associated with completing the form, and then have both you and the applicant sign and date the section. The signatures will not only confirm the paper, but they will also serve as verification that you have received the fee.
