LeaseRunner tool puts rental applications in ads

Inman News

Landlords and real estate professionals can now incorporate rental applications and tenant screenings right into rental listing ads.

Boulder, Colo.-based paperless property leasing company LeaseRunner has launched its "Apply Now" service, allowing users to accept rental applications and screen potential tenants directly from ads on Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and other websites, the company announced this week.

LeaseRunner digitizes the rental process for property managers and tenants, including rental applications, background checks, e-signatures and rent collection. The Apply Now service is free to LeaseRunner customers and, should the landlord require them, prospective tenants pay for any credit or background checks.
