A “Request Guarantor” button displays under each Proposed Tenant on the Tenancy Application.

Changes are saved by tapping the Save and Submit button.
Rentr notifies the Landlord of the change and invites them to check and confirm those new terms are acceptable.

Applicants can tap on the button and add Guarantor information for as many Guarantors as they would like to provide.
A 11: RENTR LETS CO-APPLICANTS KNOW ABOUT ALL THE ACTIVITY ON THE APPLICATION LIKE ADDITIONAL APPLICANTS OR GUARANTORS
Yes – Rentr works to keep everyone informed as to the progress and status of their Application, while protecting personal information from co-applicants.
This helps Applicants work together to help the application progress.
A 12: EXISTING RENTR USERS ARE ABLE TO SEE NEW APPLICATIONS ON THEIR RENTR APPLICATIONS SCREEN
Rentr notifies all existing Rentr users when they are added to a new application, allowing them to check their Rentr app and confirm that they want to be part of the proposed Tenancy.
If a co applicant is not already using Rentr then Rentr sends them credentials and an invitation to download the app when they are first added to an Application.
A 13: LEAD APPLICANTS CANNOT REMOVE OTHER APPLICANTS FROM A RENTR TENANCY APPLICATION
Rentr protects your right to control your own tenancy application.
Only the Landlord or the Applicant themselves can remove them from the Application.

A 14: THE LEAD APPLICANT CAN VIEW DETAILS OF AN APPLICATION THEY HAVE APPROVED
All Applications appear in the Applications menu.
A 15: ANY APPLICANT (PROSPECTIVE CO-TENANT) CAN WITHDRAW THE TENANCY APPLICATION
At any time when the Application Status is “Pending Tenant Acceptance”, the“Withdraw Application” button is visible to all tenants.
Any Rentr Tenant user on the Tenancy Application can withdraw the whole Application simply by tapping it.
A 16: THE ‘LEAD APPLICANT’ IS IMPORTANT TO THE RENTR APPLICATIONS PROCESS
Rentr considers the first applicant added to the Application as the Lead Applicant. Often they will be the person whose email id has been used to setup the initial property Viewing, either through Gumtree, the Rentr.co website, or by directly contacting the Landlord.
Rentr considers this person to be the central contact for matters regarding that Tenancy: they confirm the tenancy dates and rent, and are notified when Co-applicants are asked to submit additional information, and when they have done so.
Rentr gives the Lead role to someone because, as in the real world, it is important to have one person as the first point of contact in regards to a Tenancy.
A 17: THE ‘LEAD APPLICANT’ ROLE IS NOT EFFECTIVE ONCE THE TENANCY AGREEENT HAS BEEN SIGNED.
The ‘Lead’ and ‘Co’ Applicant and Tenant roles are effective only in the Rentr App.
In fact, under the ‘Joint and Several’ Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement you form when you eSign the Tenancy Agreement template included in the Rentr app all of the Tenants are equal, and all jointly share responsibility (with their Guarantors if there are any) for making sure that the Tenants’ obligations under the contract are fulfilled.
A 18: APPLICANTS CAN PULL OUT OF A RENTR TENANCY APPLICATION
At any time until the Tenancy Application is confirmed by the Lead Tenant and Approved by the Landlord, any applicant can decline to be a part of an application easily using their Rentr App.
If the Lead Applicant pulls out, that Application is cancelled, but Rentr makes is so easy for Rentr users to make Tenancy Applications that their co-applicants can always move forwards with the Landlord again quickly.
A 19: THE RENTR APPLICATION STATUS KEEPS EVERYTHING RUNNING SMOOTHLY
The Application Status is the way in which Rentr keeps users informed about the progression of the Application.
Rentr makes it so easy to create and manage multiple applications directly from your mobile device, and both Landlords and Tenants can edit details at any time: negotiating Rent, Tenancy Start Dates, adding co-Applicants to share the rent, and including special terms (not available with Rentr).
When a Lead Tenant submits an application, the Landlord has to accept those details before the Application can be moved to a Tenancy Agreement.
If a Landlord edits something on the Tenancy Application, Rentr requires the Tenants’ acceptance of that change before it will allow the Landlord to form a contract.
Rentr works to ensure that both Landlords and their Tenants are kept informed and up-to-date with what is going on with their Applications, their Tenancies, and their Properties by notifying each party concerned when anything changes
