Requesting a Report
There are several ways to request a screening report from renters.
(1) Instant Screening
Get the information you need in a matter of seconds! As part of the rental application, an applicant can complete the identity verification so once you request it, you’ll get their report back instantly. For more info, read our Help Article on Instant Screening Reports.
(2) Screening Tenants who have Already Applied
If a renter has applied through TurboTenant, you can request a screening report at no extra cost. For more information, read our Help Article on How do I Request a Screening Report from an Applicant? (credit, criminal background and eviction reports).
(3) Screening Tenants who have Not Applied
Only need a credit and background check? Have a renter who didn't apply through TurboTenant? You can request a screening report without having a renter complete the entire application process. Read our Help Article on How do I Request a Screening Report from a Renter who has not Applied?
