What is the application process for residents living in my property?

What is Alcove's application process? How is the property manager involved in the selection process?

Alcove sources the most qualified renters you could find. Our selection process is highly competitive and requires owner/property manager approval. 

Roommate safety is incredible important to our community - this is reflected in our comprehensive screening process. Perspective candidates complete their applications on our platform and all screening information is shared with property managers. They are individually approved by the owner/property manager before they can move-in. The following is information about our background check:

TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions is our background check partner. All our occupants are screened with SmartCheck Premium, which is the most extensive rental check that is offered by TransUnion. This covers credit, criminal, evictions and income insights. All these are attached to our occupant addition addendum for approval from the property manager.

When an application is ready to be approved, you will receive an email notification and resident can be approved on https://manager.alcoverooms.com/applications.
