We notify you by SMS and email as soon as we find each interested tenant. You are then free to contact and meet the ones you like and show them your property.
Set up your tenancy properly. Introducing Rent Now.
To start the Rent Now process the landlord needs to create an OpenRent listing (Pssst! you can add a listing here), the tenants then press the green Rent Now button from the listing page on the OpenRent site.
They will be asked to pay a £200 holding deposit by debit or credit card to confirm their application for the property. The landlord will be notified via SMS and email as soon as the holding deposit is paid, and can then immediately choose whether to accept the application, and if so whether referencing is required.
OpenRent’s market leading referencing combines a thorough credit check with references from employers and previous landlords to give a clear indication of the suitability of tenants.
The landlord decides who they want to accept - we keep everyone updated throughout the process and are happy to advise based on our experience of thousands of tenancy applications. On average, comprehensive referencing takes 3-5 days, whilst speedy ones are turned around within 24 hours.
Referencing is free to landlords within Rent Now - we charge tenants £20 per applicant to ensure they are serious about going ahead.
As part of the Rent Now process, OpenRent will draft your contract and have all parties securely sign the tenancy agreement online (learn more and see sample). There is no additional cost for this service and it is included in Rent Now.
If the landlord is happy to accept the tenants following referencing, they simply let us know via the website and we then proceed to contract signing. Once the landlord has checked and confirmed a few details, the tenants will be asked to sign the AST online, and each person will be notified via email when it’s their turn to sign.
The landlord will be asked to sign the AST once all tenants and any guarantors have signed.
As part of the Rent Now process, OpenRent will collect the deposit and first month’s rent from the tenants and securely register the deposit on the landlord’s behalf. This makes sure the tenancy is legally sound and fully compliant with legal requirements for deposits. With OpenRent helping to create thousands of tenancies a month, everyone can rest assured they are in safe hands.
Tenants benefit from the convenience of being able to pay securely by debit card or bank transfer 24/7, and the peace of mind of knowing their money will be protected instantly by the largest letting agent in the UK.
Once the tenants have paid the full balance of the first month’s rent and deposit, the landlord will be notified automatically by email. They are then free to hand over the keys!
The deposit is transferred to the landlord’s control within the DPS scheme within a few working days, and once the tenants have moved in we release the rent to the landlord 7-14 days later. We pass the landlord’s account details to the tenants to allow them to make monthly rental payments direct to the landlord going forward.
