A Better Way to Work
RentScreener PRO for Property Managers combines both a secure online rental application with flexible screening options to create a full management system to handle inbound applications. Whether you're a small property manager, or have teams of leasing agents processing hundreds of applications per week, RentScreener has the perfect solution for your company.
We build software for property managers, and that's all we do. RentScreener is founded by former property managers and we have worked with hundreds of industry leaders to develop the perfect online rental application and tenant screening software. Our passion is to stay on top of the property management industry.
Your Application Online
We know that a boiler-plate, generic online rental application doesn't work for you. That is why we allow you to replicate your existing and trusted rental application online. Our team will help you turn your paper or PDF rental application into a secure online application.
The RentScreener application builder allows you to fully customize or re-create your existing rental application online. Choose which sections you need, pick which fields are required or optional, and include as many addenda as necessary. This is truly YOUR application.
See how it works:
- Document Upload

Track what happened, when it happened and who did it with RentScreener's historical timeline. Every event that happens in our system is tracked including, status changes, notes, letters, application changes, and all communications with all parties involved.
With built in payment processing there is no need for a merchant account, payment gateway, high monthly fees, transaction fees, lengthly qualification process, chargebacks, refunds or other hassles. All of these services are included in our $5 processing fee charged to the applicant.
