How do I approve a rental applicant?

After you've received a rental application, screened a prospective tenant, and reviewed the screening reports, one of the final steps in the leasing process is to make a decision to approve or decline an applicant.

To approve a rental applicant:

    1. Navigate to Leasing > Applicants.
    2. Click on the applicant you want to approve. 
    3. In the drop down menu on the top left of the applicant summary page, change the status to Approved. There are other options available if you need to defer, cancel, or reject an applicant.



When you approve an applicant, Buildium does not automatically send them a notification.

We recommend using our template to let the applicant know about your decision:

Once you've notified the applicant of their approval, you can move them into a lease in Buildium.
