TurboTenant Pro Tip

  • A prospective renter can easily upload documents that are included with the online rental application (e.g., driver's license, pay stubs, new hire letter, etc.). There is no limit to the number of uploads a tenant can include with their application.
  • A landlord can easily edit the renters application, after it is received, to update any information by clicking on the "Edit Application" button. This is helpful if information is missing or changes from the original application.
  • If you'd like to change between the two types of TurboReports, check this article for how to do so: How do I switch the type of screening report that I run on my applicant?
