An Iowa rental application is a form used to verify the identity, employment, and income of a prospective tenant. It is a standard form for the presentation of the qualifications necessary to be granted a lease. The form provides a structure for information to be easily entered. Furthermore, it contains a consent line that authorizes the landlord to investigate the information that has been claimed by the applicant such as their current contact information and job status.


  • Application Fee  – Landlords can charge any amount  to cover the application costs (no statute).
  • Security Deposit  – Two months rent is the maximum amount that may be demanded by a landlord ( 562A.12(1) ).
