California Rental Application Form Template - Free Download

The California Rental Lease Application – RW 11-5 is a form which the State of California Department of Transportation or their employees often use to gather personal information from prospective tenants seeking to rent any type of real estate properties belonging to the Department of Transportation.

The information so disclosed are used by the State to review the credit, rental and employment records of the applicant. The result of the background checks often forms the basis for accepting or declining a rental lease application.

Unlike rental properties belonging to individual landlords in the State of California where landlords may choose to charge a non-refundable fee to cover for the cost of establishing the identity of the applicant, no charges are paid by applicants for the California Rental Lease Application and no agents other than the employees of the state can represent the Department of Transportation in processing rental of state-owned properties.
