Georgia rental application PDF

A Georgia rental application is a form that landlords or property management companies use to find the right tenant for a rental property. The application helps potential tenants present their personal and financial information in an organized way for the landlord's approval. Landlords sometimes ask for a non-refundable fee and typically respond to the application within one or two days. If the tenant is approved, they will be given a lease agreement to sign.

RentSpree makes this process fast, easy and safe for landlords and renters. You'll find everything from an online rental application and tenant screening to renters insurance and insurance verification.

Georgia rental application laws

In Georgia, landlords are required to follow specific laws and regulations when screening tenants and reviewing rental applications. These laws are designed to protect both landlords and tenants and ensure that the rental process is fair and transparent. Informational only; not legal advice.

  • Fair Housing Act: The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability in the sale, rental, or financing of housing. It applies to all housing providers, including landlords and property managers.
  • Georgia Fair Housing Law: The Georgia Fair Housing Law prohibits discrimination based on the same protected classes as the federal Fair Housing Act, as well as additional classes such as age, marital status, and sexual orientation.
  • Georgia Code Ann. § 44-7-14: This law limits the amount that landlords can charge for an application fee to $50 or the actual cost of the background check, whichever is less. Additionally, landlords must provide applicants with a receipt for the fee.
  • Georgia Code Ann. § 44-7-3: This law requires landlords to provide tenants with a written rental agreement, which must include the names of all occupants, the term of the tenancy, the rent amount, and the due date for rent payments.
  • Georgia Code Ann. § 44-7-34: This law requires landlords to give tenants a written notice before entering their rental unit, except in emergencies or if the tenant has abandoned the unit.
  • Georgia Code Ann. § 44-7-36: This law allows landlords to require a security deposit, but limits the amount to two months' rent for rental agreements longer than one year, or one month's rent for rental agreements of one year or less.
  • Georgia Code Ann. § 44-7-20: This law prohibits landlords from discriminating against tenants based on their source of income, such as public assistance or housing vouchers.

This is not an exhaustive list of laws and regulations that govern tenant screening and rental applications in Georgia. Consult with a licensed attorney to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
