Feel More Confident Sharing Your Information.

ApplyConnect uses top level and state of the art security practices to protect your sensitive, personally identifiable information. You can rest easy sharing your tenant screening background check between only you and the person you choose.

How it Works

Complete the background check for your dream home or apartment online in just three steps.

Create Your Account
and Fill Out the Application

Fill out a quick form with your information to create your account. After registering you can verify your identity securely through Experian, one of the three major credit bureaus. This process should only take a few minutes and ensures your information is kept private and secure.

Purchase and View
Your Background Check

After you’ve been securely verified by Experian, you’ll be prompted to purchase the tenant screening report for $28.50. Once purchased, you can view your tenant screening background check (processing takes just a few seconds), and share it with your future landlord.

Time for the Landlord
to Make Their Decision!

The landlord will notify you via email whether your tenant screening report has been accepted, denied, or is a conditional acceptance requiring additional information. You can also see if your report is still pending directly within your ApplyConnect account. Depending on if your landlord signs up for it, you may be prompted to complete an online rental application shortly after the screening report processes.

Complete a Background Check at your Own Pace

No one likes paperwork, and processing your tenant screening background check is no exception. We hear you, and we’ve come up with a screening platform that gives more control and has zero impact on your credit score.

Total Screening

Paper tenant screening background checks are a thing of the past. ApplyConnect lets you complete your background check completely online, at your own pace. All you have to do to share your report with your future landlord is create an account, verify your identity with Experian (one of the main three credit bureaus) and sit back and relax.

Your Credit Score is

Worried your credit score will be affected? Don’t be! Since you share your tenant screening report yourself, the credit check is considered a “soft inquiry” on your credit history and doesn’t impact your credit score in any way. You can apply for as many properties as you may need to, and request multiple ApplyConnect reports, without your credit score seeing any type of negative effects. Learn more about the score.

Know if You're Faster

We know you want to know if you’ve snagged your home as soon as possible, and we’ve cut down on processing time so your future landlord can get the information they’re waiting on sooner rather than later. With ApplyConnect, processing your tenant screening report and delivering the information to your potential landlord takes just a few seconds.

Top-Notch

ApplyConnect doesn’t share your Social Security Number (SSN) or tradeline account numbers with anyone – not even the landlord. In fact, we don’t even put them on the copy of the credit report. In addition to masking your personal information, we encrypt all of your personal data. ApplyConnect undergoes annual, level 1 certification from Experian’s Independent 3rd Party Assessment.
