How SoftSCreen Works.pdf

For Tenants


  1. Register to Create your TENANT account
  2. You can now locate the address of any rental property already entered in SoftScreen by the listing agent or landlord
  3. Once you've located the address, simply click to order and receive your own reports and to provide your reports to the listing agent and/or the landlord for that rental property.

(If you've received an invitation, sent by either a Realtor® or a Landlord, simply click the link within that email!)

If searching for an address not yet entered in SoftScreen, you can enter the email address of either the listing agent or landlord to invite them to enter the address for you. Once they enter it, you can then order and share your reports.

OR

If you are working with your own awesome Realtor® they can do this for you!

For Property Owners


  1. Register to Create your PROPERTY OWNER account
  2. Enter the address of your rental property. If applicable, you can even include your listing agent by providing their email address and SoftScreen will invite them to receive Reports along with you (if you happen to have an agent onboard ). This is great if you are working with a Listing Agent and want them to receive the same information. If you don't have an agent, no problem. You can skip it!
  3. That's it!

Now any tenant interested in applying for your rental property can locate its address to automatically share their reports with you (and even with your listing agent)

OR

You can invite the tenant to provide reports to you by using their email address

Anytime Reports are provided, we will let you know right away. We always send an email!

For Listing Realtors®


  1. Register to Create your AGENT account
  2. Enter the address of your rental listing. If you would like, you can even include the Property Owner with just their email address. SoftScreen will invite them to opt into the Report Distribution Chain. They can receive Reports along with you if they wish. SoftScreen handles Report Distribution, safely and legally!
  3. That's it!

Now any tenant can easily locate your listing by its address to provide their reports to you and even to the Property Owner.

OR

You can invite prospective tenants to provide reports... just by using their email address. Even the Tenant's Agent can invite their client to provide you with Reports!

Anytime Reports are provided, we will let you know. We always send an email!

For Tenant's Realtors®


  1. Register to Create your AGENT account
  2. Locate the address of any rental listing entered in SoftScreen by the Listing Agent or Property Owner
  3. Click to invite your Tenant to provide their reports to the Listing Agent and/or the Property Owner and to receive their own complete copies! Game Changer!

If the address is not yet entered in SoftScreen simply "Create a listing" to enter the address as the Tenant's Showing Agent. This creates a "provisional property". SoftScreen will then invite the listing agent (or even a Landlord) to claim the address. Once claimed, it is available for Tenants to provide reports. SoftScreen will automatically notify you and your tenant that the address is now available!
