How to I sign up?
Register your properties here!
What is the cost of registering?
HomeScreen is completely free for landlords and property managers. We are a product of Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC, a non-profit dedicated to promoting and improving the quality of life in the Tower Grove Neighborhoods. We hope all landlords will use HomeScreen to help us further our mission and provide secure, reliable rental property to long-term, well qualified tenants.
My properties are outside of the Tower Grove Area, can I still register?
Absolutely, we have no geographic limitations for screening. We welcome landlords from Saint Louis City, Saint Louis County, Illinois and beyond!
How will I be notified when a potential tenant applies?
You will receive an automated email when a potential tenant starts an application for one of your properties. You will then be able to log in to the landlord portal and see if the application is complete and if the background check has started. If the application is incomplete, you will be able to see which information is still missing.
What does a potential tenant need to apply?
Each person living on the property who is 18 or older will need to submit an application with a copy of his/her ID, proof of income and application fee. Each applicant will also need to know your name or the name of your company when submitting an application so that we can link the applications back to you.
What information will I receive with the tenant report?
You will have immediate access to the applicant’s application, including their contact information and uploaded documents. We will obtain an Equifax credit report and will run a national criminal background and national eviction search. We will then verify all of the applicant’s rental references for the past five years and their income. We will make a recommendation based on this information.
