A Delaware rental application  is a form that individuals seeking to lease a property in Delaware may use to present their credentials to property managers. This is a standardized application for a rental property, so the information required from an applicant will focus on addressing several important questions that most property owners or landlords will need to be answered. For instance, the primary concern of any landlord will be if a potential tenant can pay their rent on a regular basis for the time they are renting.


  • Application Fee  – The maximum amount a landlord may charge to screen applicants is 10% of the monthly rent or $50 ( § 5514(d) ).
  • Security Deposit  – Landlords may not charge tenants more than  one (1) month’s rent ( § 5514(a) ).
