Go4Rent offers a free service to landlords and allows you access to instant background checks, verifications of your applicant’s current employment and rental history, and allows you to collect rent online.

All the tools you need

Step 1 - Create your landlord account and select your management tier

At Go4Rent, we provide you with the tools to help you better manage your rental homes. We realize one size does not fit all so we developed management tiers to fit the needs of most landlords.

Step 2 - List your home

If you’re working with a Texas Realtor, that’s great. For each home your Realtor lists, you are granted access to view the applications and order the instant background checks. You no longer have to wait for your Realtor to send the file to you. Everything is in your dashboard for you to review and process.

Step 3 - View and process the online lease application

With Go4Rent, you can view the application and supporting documents prior to charging the application fee. If the applicant meets your minimum requirements, click the Screen Now button for access to the instant credit, criminal, and eviction report. At that point, we will start verifying the applicant’s current employment and up to two years of rental history.

Step 4 - Approve or Deny the applicant

If all goes well and you approve the applicant, you can write the lease within Go4Rent. You can also send the lease agreement to the applicant for e-signature. Once signed by, everyone automatically receives a fully executed copy.

Step 5 - Collect Rent

Collecting rent on is FREE for landlords. Adding your bank account will allow you to collect the security deposit and monthly rent without sharing your bank account information with anyone, including Go4Rent. We use a bank level security system that allows you to add your bank account to your Go4Rent account. Tenants are NOT able to pay their rent on Go4Rent unless you add your bank account. Tenants pay a small processing fee of $1.95 when making a payment. Payments are deposited into your bank account within 4-5 business days. For faster deposits, consider signing up for one of the management tiers.

Some of the highlights:

  • No need to download sensitive documents to your hard drive.
  • Receive email notifications of new applications.
  • Instant access to the application, supporting documents, background checks, and completed verifications.
  • Free Lease Writing with Addendums (Texas Only).
  • Allow the applicant to send the security deposit directly to you.
  • Collect monthly rent payments.
  • Payments are deposited within 4-5 business days. For faster deposits, consider signing up for one of the management tiers.

Eviction Checks

Go4Rent conducts a nationwide check for prior evictions filed against the applicant. The report will list the name of plaintiff/landlord, date the eviction was filed, and the judgement amount.

Rental History

Go4Rent provides you with up to two years of rental history. If the applicants have resided at their current address for less than two years, Go4Rent will contact the previous landlord.

Income Verification

Applicants link their bank account to their Go4Rent account and provide their proof of income. This process will provide instant income verification. We use a secure bank level authentication process to maintain applicant privacy.

Using is simple, safe, and fast.
