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.
