Rent Now: Full Tenancy Creation Service
Rent Now is the best way to turn great tenants into a great tenancy. For just £49, we will put everything in place, including tenant referencing, collecting the holding deposit, registering the security deposit, drafting the contract and collecting signatures.
Industry best in class referencing combines a thorough credit check with references from employers and previous landlords to give a clear indication of tenant suitability.
As part of the Rent Now process, OpenRent will draft your contract and have all parties securely sign the tenancy agreement online.
Holding Deposit Collection
Tenants place holding deposits so you can focus on those serious about renting your property and reduce landlord admin.
Rent and Registration
The first month’s rent is automatically collected and the deposit is securely registered with the deposit protection scheme.
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!
All Managed Online
Simply manage the whole process with your smartphone or desktop from anywhere in the world.
From founding in 2012, to becoming the UK’s biggest letting agent in 2015, OpenRent has always had one mission: to make renting fairer, safer and cheaper for everyone.

Frequently asked questions
Got more questions about how advertising on OpenRent works? Have a look at our most-asked questions on the topic. Find even more knowledge on our FAQ page!
Is the free trial really free?
Yes! If it’s the first property you are listing with us, we will give you five days on the major property portals (including Rightmove, Zoopla, PrimeLocation, Gumtree and more). There’s no commitment to upgrade later, and if you don’t find a tenant within the five days, your advert will stay live on OpenRent’s extremely busy property search listings.
If you want to upgrade, it’s only £24 for three months on the property portals. OpenRent landlords find tenants online within 7 days on average, so there’s a great chance you won’t pay a penny! And with no obligation to pay later, there’s really nothing to lose.
How long will it take to make my advert?
It takes less than five minutes to set up your advert. We’ll automatically check for you if your advert will meet the guidelines for Rightmove and Zoopla. If your advert is up to speed, it will be live in 3-6 hours. It’s common to receive multiple viewing requests on the same day.
We can help you optimise your advert, too. You can order professional photography and check rental prices in your area with our property valuation tool. We offer ongoing support to make sure you attract as many enquiries as possible.
How long will my advert remain online?
We will advertise your property until let. That’s usually within 7 days (on average). We do have a fair usage policy, but it is incredibly rare indeed for a landlord to fail to find a suitable tenant with us. You can find out more about what this means in our pricing page, which goes into more detail.
We offer our full support and advice as the UK’s largest letting agent to make your advert the best it can be, which usually results in a happy landlord and a great tenancy.
Can I upgrade anytime?
Yes! You can upgrade from OpenRent-only listings to the Ultimate Advertising package at any point while your advert is online.
Likewise, if you find the right tenants and you’d like to use our Rent Now service to reference them and create the tenancy (contract signing, deposits, etc.), then you can do that, too. It’s a very flexible system designed to give you the ultimate power and control over what you pay: control that the high street estate agents won’t let you have!
