How it Works

Pick the option below that works best for you!

Get Instant Reports, No Tenant Email Needed

Available to everyone, but recommended for 10 units or more.

This is the fastest option. No tenant cooperation/email is required, it is a lower price, and you are in control of entering applicant data. The cost of initial certification is $59.95, which covers the onsite inspection.

  1. Register a free account.
  2. Send in documentation to show you own or manage rentals. View Required Documents.
  3. Schedule an onsite inspection of your home or commercial office. If you work from home the inspection is annual, but if you work from a commercial office it’s a one-time inspection.
  4. A couple days after the inspection you can start placing orders by simply entering the tenant’s information and your payment info.
  5. Results are available in seconds! There is no need to provide the tenant’s email.

Provide Tenant Email, No Inspection Needed

Available to everyone, but recommended for 10 units or less.

This option allows you to bill your applicant for the cost of the report. You provide your tenant’s email and name and TenantAlert will send an email to your tenant requesting they fill out on online application. There is no need to collect sensitive data from your applicant and there is no need to get an onsite inspection of your office.

  1. Register a free account and select a tenant screening package.
  2. Enter your tenant’s name and email.
  3. Purchase the report with your credit card or bill your applicant.
  4. Your tenant will be emailed a link to complete an online application that will ask them for their name, DOB, SSN, drivers license, phone, current address, income, and 3 multiple choice identity verfication questions.
  5. We’ll send you an email notification when the application has been completed.
  6. Login to your account to view the results immediately after the tenant has completed the application.
