In the state of Idaho, a rental application is the standard method for landlords collecting information on potential tenants. A rental application is an invaluable tool that allows landlords to uniformly collect information about who may be moving into their rental. These documents are important because they collect personal and generally private information and indicate to the landlord whether or not an applicant would be considered an ideal tenant. Some of the information collected can include previous bankruptcies, past evictions, credit score and so forth. Additionally, a fee is generally imposed when a tenant submits an application, which tends to average between $25 and $75.
According to Idaho State Law (Idaho Code §6-321), security deposits must be returned to the tenant no later than 30 days after the tenant has fully vacated the premises
