Title: Offer to Rent on Month-to-Month Basis and Credit Statement of Prospective Tenant, VA Form 26-6725.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0143.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: VA Form 26-6725 is used to establish the landlord-tenant relationship when properties acquired by VA, through operation of the guaranteed and direct home loan programs, are rented. The form serves as a credit statement and rental offer executed by prospective tenants of properties owned by VA. VA may rent properties acquired through guaranteed and direct home loan programs when there is little likelihood, because of market conditions, of an early sale and/or prolonged vacancy may encourage vandalism. VA Form 26-6725 states the responsibilities of the parties, evidence of tender and acceptance of rental payments, and provides credit information for evaluating the prospective tenant's ability to meet rental payments.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
