While we encourage landlords and property managers to accept Zillow applications, they are entitled to use any application service they want.
Generally, if you see an “Apply now” button or any other verbiage indicating that a property accepts Zillow applications, you should be able to apply without any additional fees. If a property shows these options and still requires you to pay a separate fee and/or undergo an additional application process, please let us know at email@example.com.
If you see ‘Request to apply’ that means the rental property does not accept Zillow Applications.
Some partners on Zillow, such as apartment communities or other multi-family rental properties, are not eligible to use Zillow applications. Please reach out to these properties using the contact form or phone number on their listing to understand their particular application process.
