Indiana Rental Application Form
Rental Application Fee
When submitting a rental application form, expect to pay a rental application fee. Though there are no limits on how much landlords can charge for the application, fees usually range between $25 to $100. The non-refundable fee will cover the processing of the rental application and the background check.
The state of Indiana does not impose a ceiling on security deposits, however, the city or county may set its own limits.
When the lease ends, the landlord will conduct a move-out inspection of the property. If there is damage beyond natural wear and tear, the landlord has the right to withhold part of the security deposit to fix the property. The landlord may also withhold the security deposit if the tenant fails to pay rent.
Unless it’s used to cover damages and unpaid rent, the security deposit should be returned to the tenant at the end of their lease. The deposit or its balance must be returned to the tenant within 45 days (IN Code § 32-31-3 (2021)).
