How long do background checks take?

(For landlords)

Background Check results aren't always returned immediately, although they usually come back within one day. Here's a graph of background check turnaround time:

Background checks can take a few business days to process in the event that a potential match comes up in a national records search. Locating and confirming those possible matches often requires manual work from government employees, and unfortunately Cozy doesn't have any way to expedite the process. 

Regardless of when your report is returned, though, we’ll send you an email as soon as the check is complete.
