As part of the process to create your rental listing with Landlord Studio, you will be asked if you want to set up a prescreening questionnaire. This questionnaire will allow you to gather initial information on tenants to decide if they meet your minimum criteria.
When a tenant hits apply they will then be asked to answer the questions you selected.
Once they submit their answers you will be notified and the tenant will be created in the landlord studio system as an applicant.
How to Manage Tenant Applications
Step 1: Log in to the landlord studio desktop portal.
Step 2: Click on rental listings in the side menu
Step 3: View applicants by clicking the “Applicants” tab at the top.
Step 4: Click on the tenant to open their details.
You will be able to see all the tenant’s details on this page including their answers to the pre-screening questionnaire.
If you didn’t enable any prescreening questions you will see this page instead of the above.
Step 5: If the tenant meets your minimum criteria you can then run a tenant screening report by clicking on “Start Background Check”
The tenant will need to fill out their details and pay. Then the report will be generated and accessible in the Landlord Studio system.
Step 6: You can then offer or decline the tenant’s application by email.
Step 7: Once they’ve accepted and signed the lease you can set up the new lease details in the Landlord Studio system and link the new tenant.
Step 8: Enable “Online Rent Collection” and invite the tenant to start collecting rent through the Landlord Studio system.
