Applying to rent can be a stressful experience for everyone involved. As a renter you must quickly dig up information and documents to secure a new home while lessors spend their days sifting through mountains of applications, tracking down contacts and missing information. Intellirent is a software provider with a passion for improving that experience.
To assist renters in providing both accurate and timely data, an online form may contain the option to connect a financial institution and account associated with income transactions that prove affordability. By doing so, potential renters will help their lessor quickly determine financial eligibility, reducing the time to process a file.

Once an account has been authenticated and connected, an applicant has the option to make changes.
IMPORTANT: Connections are subject to expire before an application is submitted. If the application has not been submitted within 24 hours of connecting the account, an applicant will be asked to complete the authentication once more.
