How do screening reports work?
When you apply for a property on Cozy, you have the option to include a copy of your credit report and background check with your application. Some landlords require it, but if they don't you still have the option of purchasing and submitting your reports with your application. Reports cost $24.99 each, or $39.99 when purchased together, and are available for 30 days once purchased.
From your rental application, you'll want to click "Start" to get started.
From here, you can either uncheck "Include a credit report" or "Include a background check" to skip your reports, or else you can enter in your personal information to purchase your reports.
To purchase your credit report, you'll be asked a series of questions about your financial history. Once you correctly answer the questions asked, you'll be shown a credit report as well as the credit score.
To purchase your background report, we'll send your information to our background check partner and let you know as soon as your check is complete and the report is available to you. Your reports will also be included with your application.
