About the Website and TenantPass' Role
The Website provides users with content, functionality, and services related to vacancy marketing, tenant rental applications, tenant risk screening, and payment processing.

We are not a party to any transactions, contracts, or agreements between users or between any user and any third party. We are not a landlord or property manager, nor are we a broker or agent for any user. Further, while we may provide general information about the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants, and screening results, we are not lawyers and do not provide legal advice. Users should consult legal counsel before entering into any contracts.
