A rental application in the state of Georgia is a form that lets a landlord find a tenant in a clear, organized, and uniform fashion. Although a rental application should be standardized and adhere to federal fair housing laws, they still ask personal questions to allow landlords to find the most responsible, financially stable tenant for his or her rental. Rental Applications generally ask for an applicant’s name, previous addresses, and other information, such as income and previous evictions or bankruptcies.
According to Georgia Code Ann. 44-7, a landlord must return the security deposit to a tenant no later than 30 days after the lease has been terminated.
