Ideally, landlords would want to keep their database of information on their tenant(s) up-to-date, so as to minimize any sort of liability, potential loss and/or verify background information before they decide to renew a lease. For this reason, they will require a tenant information update form and will need to regularly get it signed by the tenant(s) occupying the premises. To assist with drafting and understanding a form, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to know, a template that can be used to draft a tenant information update form and answers to frequently asked questions regarding the very same.
Additionally, local law in some states mandates updating of tenant information, and so, such a form will be necessary. This is typically the case when new tenants move in, a lease is renewed, a new management company takes over, or a significant update is made to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.
Drafting a tenant information update form is generally a straightforward affair. It only requires basic details and some disclaimers that the landlord will have to make. We’ve created a template to help you draft a tenant information update form, which can be found below!

A tenant information update form is a basic form that landlords are required to collect. It legally gives them the right to collect basic information regarding the tenant(s) that occupy their property.
A tenant information update form is required when a landlord needs to update information on the tenant(s) occupying his property. This typically occurs when a new lease is formed, and new tenants move in, an old lease is renewed, a new management company takes over the rental process, and/or significant updates are made to the original rental agreement.
Typically, tenants will need to provide their name, source(s) of income, vehicle information (as parking spots will need to be assigned), pet information, in the case that they have pets, and emergency contact, in case of an untimely incident.
