Common Questions

Is it really free? What’s the catch?

Cozy’s core services for landlords are free, including collecting rent. Renters can pay rent for free by paying with their checking account. We charge for credit reports and background checks, and there’s a 2.75% transaction fee for rent payments made with a credit or debit card. Revenue from screening reports and card payments allows us to offer other services for free.

Can I start using Cozy for current tenants?

Yes. It’s easy to invite your current tenants to pay rent through Cozy. You can also easily add or remove roommates in the middle of a lease.

Is Cozy safe for me and my tenants to use?

Your info and banking data are safe. Every interaction with Cozy and all connections with payment partners use bank-level encryption and secure connections that are impossible to eavesdrop on. We won’t share or sell any of your information. Read more in our Policies.

How are payments collected?

Renters can choose to pay either with a credit or debit card, or directly from their bank account. Funds are moved to the landlord’s bank account through the Federal Reserve’s Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network. It typically takes 2-4 days for tenants to verify their bank account.

Common Questions

How much can landlords charge me for a Cozy application?

There is no fee built into Cozy for a simple application. Credit reports and background checks cost $24.99 each, but only when requested. We’ll never charge you without your knowledge.

Is my information safe when I get my Credit Report?

Absolutely. The Cozy Credit Report is done in partnership with Experian, which handles the authorization. You never give Cozy your SSN. And, since you are pulling your own report, your credit score does not go down.

What methods can I use to pay my rent?

We currently allow electronic payments through the ACH network. You provide us with your routing and account number, and we’ll withdraw funds from your account. Setup typically takes 2-4 days so that we can verify your identity. Stay tuned for even more options to pay your rent.

Can I invite roommates to pay with me?

Yes! Cozy is the only company that offers you the ability to pay your landlord together as one. It’s easy to invite your roommates and coordinate different rent shares with them.
