Zillow Group does not permit landlords to charge separate applications fees. Zillow Group charges prospective rents a user fee of $29 for use of its platform for 30 days. During those 30 days, prospective renters can send their information (with third-party provided credit and background checks) to an unlimited number of potential landlords. We do not share any of the platform user fees with landlords, and we do not permit landlords to charge application fees to prospective renters who have utilized our platform.
