The services partners offer vary and details are provided below on which states, forms and types of services available.

REI Apply Now

Available in

Service: Send REI Residential Tenancy Application forms to applicants for completion.

Setting up a Tenancy Application for sending

This step is required to include specific details within the Residential Tenancy Application, including attachments. Once details are set up within an application, this Residential Tenancy Application can be sent multiple times/to multiple applicants.

At a minimum, we suggest adding the Property Address and the Rent amount within the Residential Tenancy Application, as well as using the Property Address for the form name, for simpler searching.

  1. Create a Tenancy Application form
    • See here for information on creating forms
  2. Complete any required details within the Tenancy Application
    • At a minimum, include Property Address and desired rent
  3. Add any required files to the Tenancy Application
    • See here for information on adding files to forms
  4. NB: Any files added to the Residential Tenancy Application will be provided to the applicant during the Apply Now process. These will also be emailed to the applicant once they have submitted their application for the property.
  5. Click <Save>

Your prepared Residential Tenancy Application for the property is now ready for sending!

Sending Tenancy Application to a prospective tenant

This process is able to be undertaken from within the form itself or the forms list by using the Partners button.

  1. Select the desired Tenancy Application
  2. Click <Partners> button
  3. Click <Apply Now> option
  4. Dialog will present you with information that has been completed in the Tenancy Application form - complete any details that are missing
  5. Click <Next> button
  6. Complete the prospective tenants name and email address for sending
  7. Click <Submit>
  8. Once the invitation has been sent, a green success message will appear in the bottom right hand corner of the screen
  9. Close the send dialog

Once an applicant has completed the Residential Tenancy Application form, an email notification is sent to the Agent to advise an application has been submitted via Apply Now. This notification includes a link to the form within REI Forms Live itself (time saving!).
