An overview of RentSpree for an applicant

What is RentSpree?

RentSpree is an online rental application service and includes tenant screening by TransUnion in order to streamline the rental process for both applicants and owners/agents. We save you time by providing the rental applications and screening reports, meaning less back and forth between you, the owner/agent, and any other parties involved. Once completed, applicants pay a screening fee at the end of the submission, before submitting the reports to the Property Rep, with a Debit, Credit, or Prepaid card.

You can complete applications online via a request from your owner/agent. We also offer tenant screening reports generated by TransUnion SmartMove. These reports include a credit report and score, 44 state criminal background check, and eviction related proceedings. However, please note applicants who apply to properties in the state of New Jersey will NOT generate a Criminal Background Check. Also,  applicants who apply to properties in the state of New York will NOT generate Eviction Related Proceedings either.

If you process rental applications in New Jersey:

As you may be aware, the New Jersey State Legislature passed S250/A1919, the “Fair Chance in Housing Act”. This legislation is effective as of January 1, 2022.

If you process rental applications in New York:

As you may be aware, the New York legislature passed legislation entitled “NY Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019,” which impacts the rental housing industry within New York.

Application ProcesIf you want to apply to multiple properties through RentSpree, you do not have to fill out multiple applications — your information is saved from the first one you filled out. Due to this, we require all applicants to have their own account with us for security reasons and to prevent further issues.
