  7. Click on the Get Started button to initiate the Single Sign-On process with RentSpree.



  8. You will then be asked to enter YOUR mailing address. This is not the address of the applicant and is required in order to access reports from TransUnion. Once you have entered the required information you can click on Continue.

  9. You will then be asked to select your listing to enable tenant screening. Once you have selected your property, click on Next.
    1. If you would like to add a property that is not listed on Rentals.com, you can click on the Add New Property tab.




  10. You will now be asked to confirm which reports you would like. You can include an online rental application at no cost and for $30, you can also include a complete credit report, criminal background check, and nationwide eviction report. You can also choose to pay this yourself or if you want the applicant to pay us directly. Once you have made your decision, click on Finish.



That's it! You've now initiated the tenant screening on your Rentals.com listing. There will be an Apply Now button that appears under the contact box of your listing (shown below) and we will notify you once someone has completed the application and screening process.
