How do I apply to a listing?
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
- 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.
