How do I apply to a listing?

For renters

Once you have a link to a rental application through Cozy, it's easy to fill it out and submit it to your potential landlord. Here's how:

Set up your account: Follow the application link to the application and sign up for a Cozy account

Add Co-Applicants: If you're applying with roommates, you'll add their names and email addresses on the Co-Applicants page. This will send each person an invite to join your application. If you're applying alone, you can skip this step.

Complete your Renter Profile: Here you'll add the following sections:

  • Basic Information
  • Employment and Income
  • Rental History
  • References
  • Screening Questions

Include your Screening Reports: If you'd like, you can include a copy of your credit report and/or background check with your application. If you'd like to include your report, you'll need to verify your identity with our credit partner, Experian. Once you've done this, you can purchase a copy of one report for $24.99, or both for $39.99.

Review and Submit: As the final step in your application you'll be asked to review all your information and then submit the completed application to the landlord.

Wait for the landlord to decide: If the landlord selects your application, they'll be able to set up a lease term and request rent payments directly through Cozy. If you need to check on the status of your application, though, we recommend you contact the landlord directly.
