Send Zillow Application?? (by Adele [FL]) Posted on: Dec 1, 2021 10:20 AM

Hello! If I send a Zillow application, via Zillow because they allow applicants to apply over and over for several apartments using only one application fee, (other marketing sites do this too), am I legally obligated to get back with the applicant? You know, their credit didn’t match to our criteria, etc.. Whereas if I just call them I can pre-screen them over the phone with no formalized application. It would actually be good to see their info before I called……

That would be a question to Zillow.

I’ve turned the “accept Zillow applications” selection off. I’d recommend you do the same.

Collect the app fee and process your own application.

I get quite a few "send me an application" requests from Zillow; I imagine it might be one of their standard push a button features.

I always respond (as this any request from various online sources) asking if the applicant has reviewed the requirements in the ad regarding income, etc. etc.. and if so do they meet those. In about 90 percent of cases I never hear back from this person again.

If I do the next step is scheduling a viewing of the property. I explain I have my own applications available at the property.

I avoid the Zillow apps from the get-go by not accepting them at all.

These corporate types are not there for, nor looking out for my interests.

I trust nothing of what they are peddling.

If such a tenancy should got to Hades I will accept the responsibility for MY error
