ApplyConnect makes it easy for potential renters to apply after sharing their tenant screening report. Rental applications are designed to be simple and easy to complete entirely online.
Features of Rental Applications:
Rental applications are designed to walk applicants through providing all of the important details you rely upon in making your decision. Applicants use an ‘auto-save’ feature so applicants won’t lose their place along the way.
ApplyConnect makes it easy for applicants to upload their paystubs, drivers’ license, and other helpful documents used to approve or deny potential renters.
The entire application can be completed online, and is saved in your account to review online. Applications can also be saved as a PDF and downloaded to make saving or emailing simple.
Rental applications are designed for desktop and mobile devices, including all major features such as document uploads and e-signature.
ApplyConnect is free for properties, and the tenant screening report is paid for by the applicant. There are no hidden fees, monthly minimums, site inspection or subscription required to get started. Properties who charge an application fee also have the ability to pre-purchase reports for their applicants when inviting them.
The only costs associated with ApplyConnect are for purchasing tenant screening reports, and are paid for by rental applicants. There are no hidden fees, monthly minimums, site inspection or subscription required to get started.
Most renters purchase a copy of their report to share with properties they apply for, and ApplyConnect is designed for this to be the default process. The property may also choose to purchase the report for their applicants. This can be done easily through the “My Account” tab when logged in, and by checking the box that says “Enable Landlord/Agent Payment”.
Including the zip code of the rental property will add a bonus search to the tenant screening report. ApplyConnect will check the zip code for any local laws on what information can be used in the rental decision, and then will reduce your liabilities by filtering information that isn’t safe to rely on.
No! There is no part of the process that will have an impact on anyone’s credit score. If your social security number is required during the account setup process then it is only a one-time, safe and secure way of verifying your identity. When a report is purchased the renter’s SSN is requested again for the credit report, and it is used for a ‘soft-inquiry’ meaning there will be zero impact to the credit score.
ApplyConnect reports always include an Experian credit report, a nationwide criminal database scan, and a nationwide eviction history. There is no need to select individual reports or pick from a variety of products – the report is designed to be fair and consistent for all applicants while providing the most well-rounded amount of relevant detail to make informed decisions.
This is the credit score included on all tenant screening reports. Many people are familiar with the FICO score, and VantageScore works exactly the same way. The biggest difference is the VantageScore is newer, and is able to provide a score on over 30 million more people.
How many times the tenant screening report can be shared by a renter. That’s it. All information is identical with both options. Renters who purchase the Apply Three have the added benefit of being able to improve their odds of finding their next home and saving money by sharing their report with up to 3 different properties.
