How ApplyConnect Works

Your applicant will pay for their report. Invite applicants through your ApplyConnect account, and we'll contact them with a request to purchase and share their tenant screening with you.



Notify applicants with your decision to approve or deny them. Sending your applicants ApplyConnect's legally reviewed decision letter is the final step for safe tenant screening.

♦ Current / Previous Addresses

No. There’s zero impact to anyone’s credit score using any feature of ApplyConnect. We verify everyone’s identity passively without pulling anyone’s credit report, and tenant screening reports for applicants are a ‘soft-inquiry.’ ApplyConnect reports will provide all of the information you expect to see on a credit report, including the credit score, without negatively impacting the score.

All across the U.S. cities and states have been adding new requirements and restrictions that affect your ability to manage rental properties. Some of these laws and ordinances include specific guidance on what information can be included on a tenant screening report. When you include your property’s zip code ApplyConnect will check for local tenant screening guidance, and update your reports to comply. The SAFE Screen enhanced search helps improve ApplyConnect’s ability to provide maximum possible accuracy.

Every tenant screening includes an Experian credit report paired with a nationwide background check of criminal and eviction records. To help reduce our client’s liabilities reports are packaged with the same information (credit, eviction & criminal) so all applicants are reviewed using the same criteria. Additionally when the property zip code is included then reports will be automatically updated to check for local laws and remove information that isn’t allowed to be used in your decision.

VantageScore is a risk scoring model very similar to FICO, on a scale of 300 – 850,  but created by the 3 major credit bureaus with the ability to provide a score on up to 40 million more applicants.
