A Rhode Island rental application is used by landlords seeking to find a qualified tenant for their rental property. The application will include blank fields where the tenant can enter their personal and employment information. After completing, the tenant will sign and return to the landlord. Often a non-refundable fee is required. Afterward, the landlord will take 1-2 days to approve or reject the application.


  • Application Fee – There is no limit a landlord may charge for an application fee and it is non-refundable (no statute).
  • Security Deposit – Security deposits requested by landlords may not be more than one (1) month’s rent ( § 34-18-19 ).
