Rental Manager Starter Kit
Think of these as booster packs for your rocket!
These will make your life easier. Use them for good, not evil.
Everything below is included in your Rental Manager Starter Kit.
We wish we had all these when we were starting out!
A thorough rental application is the first step in tenant screening. Keep a stack of these in any vacant rental unit, along with a mug full of pens, and as you show each prospective renter the property, have them fill out a rental application on the spot.
With fillable fields and a built-in e-signature, you can also email this application to be filled out and returned electronically as well.
And no, we’re not trying to pull one over on you – we offer the rental application for free elsewhere on the site, but we figured we’d add it to the kit for your convenience 🙂
Run Credit Reports, Criminal Checks and Eviction Reports
Small landlord-friendly – No site inspection required.
And you can even charge the tenant screening reports to the applicant directly!
As soon as the applicant approves your request, you get instant access to all reports. Start running credit reports, eviction history reports and criminal background checks today!
State-Specific Lease Agreement
Far too many landlords fail to use a lease that protects them like a shield. Think of this lease agreement as a bulletproof vest for you and your property: it protects you from defaults and lawsuits, and protects your property from damage.

What repairs fall under “normal wear and tear,” that come out of your pocket?
While the lines can occasionally get blurry, use this handy-dandy Security Deposit Cheat Sheet to determine what repair expenses you can and can’t deduct from the security deposit. (And yes, we just used “handy-dandy” in a sentence. Get over it.)
And while you’re at it, watch the module on Prepping Your Property to Perform, for tips on how to reclassify some “normal wear and tear” repairs as tenant-caused damage!
