What is the Application Process?

Our entire process is completed online for your ease and convenience! Once you apply to the rooms of your choice, an Alcove representative will reach out to you about your application. The TransUnion check covers credit, criminal, evictions and income insights. For more information see the article Application Fee.

The TransUnion check will be reviewed by both Alcove and the homeowner or property manager. Roommate profiles, contact info, and bios are available after the application is completed and you have qualified for the property. 

Once you have completed the application, you'll also be able to request a virtual or in-person tour. 

All your paperwork will be sent to the property manager for final approvals and to any current roommates for constructive feedback. When the property manager approves you, your potential roommate's contact information will appear in your portal so you can schedule a meet and greet! The property manager's approval process typically takes 24-48 hours to complete. 

Once all the paperwork is in you will be sent a lease in your Alcove portal to review and sign. We will send you a move in email a few days before the start of your lease and an introduction email to you and your new roommates, so they know when to expect you!
