Credit & Background Check Payments
How much does a credit & background check cost?
Each credit & background check costs a total of $35. The $35 screening fee is non-refundable, and each screening is only good for use on a single application. It cannot be transferred to applications for other properties or landlords. There are no set-up fees or any hidden costs.
Who pays for the screening?
The landlord is able to request a credit & background check from each applicant. A landlord can choose to either have each applicant pay for the screening - or- he/she can opt to pay for the screening on behalf of each applicant.
When is a charge incurred?
If the landlord has decided to have applicants pay for their own screenings, the charge is incurred after each applicant has completed the application request, entered their information, and successfully passed their identity authentication online.
If the landlord has decided to pay for the screening on behalf of the applicants, the charge is incurred immediately upon request of the background check. Catch us on live chat on https://www.rentler.com/ or call us at 1-888-222-1009 if you have any questions about this process.
