HomeScreen does not accept or deny applications, that decision is left to the property owners. Please discuss the qualifications for the apartment with the property manager before submitting the application.

Each applicant must submit a copy of his/her Driver’s License (or state issued ID) and proof of income with his/her application. Proof of income is typically your two most recent paycheck stubs. If you are starting a new position, please submit an offer letter. If you are self-employed, please submit two years of tax returns.

Two to four business days. The landlord will be notified the day you apply, but verifying references typically takes a few days.
