They will need to check their junk/spam folder.

If the applicant is not so computer literate, they need to complete the Comprehensive Application Form or Instant Application Form.  These forms must have all fields completed.  The applicant’s email address and contact number must be included and email addresses and contact numbers for the landlord and employer.  If there has been a name change the date of the name change must also be included.  They will also need to date and sign the Experian Consent Form.
The Instant checks are literally that, as soon as the online form is completed the report is generated.
