The Arizona Residential Rental Application aids the lessor in the gathering of information to properly examine the background of each prospective lessee. When an individual shows interest in an available property for lease, the first advancement in the procedure is to acquire and submit an application for review. Some rentals may obligate that the inquiring party remits an application fee for processing expenses. The information is then used to approve the potential renter of the property before lease agreement endorsement. Lease signing can then commence as long as the applicant meets the requirements to afford the monthly payments and has a clean rental history.
Application Fee – The state of Arizona does not appoint a limitation on the amount that can be charged as an application fee. State regulation does insist if the fee is non-refundable, it must be stated in the language of accompanying paperwork (§33-1321).
