How do I screen a renter through TurboTenant?

Have a potential renter that you'd like to screen with TurboTenant? Great! It's easy to get started, and we'll tell you everything you need to know.

Screening reports are tied to an applicant's online application. If you've already signed up for TurboTenant, here's how to screen an applicant:

Step 1 - Login to your TurboTenant account

Step 2 - Add your property to TurboTenant

You can learn about that here.



Step 3 - Turn on Accepting Applications 

You can learn more about here. 



Step 4 - Invite the Renter to apply or share your link

You can learn more about that here



Step 5 - View your applications in the Renters Tab 



Step 6 -Request the Screening Report

You can read more about that here. 


Step 7 - The applicant authorizes the report and verifies their identity

When you request the applicant's screening report an authorization and verification email will be automatically generated to the tenant (at the email address they provided in the application).  

The applicant will need to authorize you to view their credit report and answer a few auto-generated identity verification questions provided by TransUnion (the credit bureau used). For more information on why we do this, take a look at this article.

As soon as they authorize the report you will be notified. You can then log in to TurboTenant to review their screening report.
