When you enable applications on one or more of your listings, renters see an Apply now button on your listing. They can use this button to submit an application. With our applications feature, you will receive the following from tenants who apply:
- Comprehensive online application
- Instant, in-depth third party credit reports and background checks
- Eviction and criminal records
You may also send an invitation for renters to apply online.
To send the invitation to apply, go to the Find tenants tab in Zillow Rental Manager. In the Applications section, click Invite a renter to apply. You will then need to enter the interested renter's name and email address. This will trigger an email to the interested renter with a link to fill out an application.
When a renter applies, we will send you a notification email. Any completed applications will show up in your listing under Find tenants > Applications.
