What is the Request to Apply feature?
When your listing is active on Apartments.com, there are a number of ways a renter can reach out to you. And along with an email or phone call, we now offer renters a chance to inquire about your rental while giving you a picture of their background and income.
The Request to Apply feature will be present on all user-submitted listings, and when a renter selects it, they will be able to self-report their income and credit history. After this information is provided, you will receive an email notification about the renter's interest.
You can access this self-report by going to the Menu, selecting Properties & Listings and then Application Requests. On this screen, you will also be able to send them an invitation to apply for the rental online if they meet your criteria.
