Tenant Screening, But Simple.

Start screening your tenants in just three steps!


Simply complete a quick form and create an account! After filling out the short registration form and having your identity verified by Experian, you’re good to go. Not only is this process something that can be completed quickly, but it’s also free.


Invite your applicants to share their credit report with you. After creating an account, the applicant will then pay the $28.50 fee for the report (Want to pay for the report? You can!), and give consent for it to be shared with you.


Reports are processed within a matter of seconds after the applicant has paid. You’ll receive an email alert when the report is available, and can be viewed easily from your account dashboard. Now you have all the tenant information you need to make an informed decision.

You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to lease your rental property. With AIC Tenant Screening through ApplyConnect you can enjoy the benefits of a straightforward online tenant credit check while confidently finding the perfect renters for your rental vacancies.
