Choose the perfect package for you: from free advertising to full tenancy creation, rent handling and deposit processing. All OpenRent prices include VAT.

Your first advert is free, no payment details necessary.

All OpenRent Properties are available with no admin fees!

OpenRent was created to remove the need for expensive, unnecessary admin fees for both tenants and landlords. We have a belief that we can provide a high quality service online and for little to no cost.

Applying for a property, placing a holding deposit, setting up a tenancy, processing the deposit, drafting the contract - these services all have no cost to the tenant.

One thing you may be charged when renting a property via OpenRent, is for referencing. This is a maximum of £20 - and is at the landlords discretion. Some landlords don't require referencing, or will pay for it themselves directly.

The reason we charge for referencing is because it costs us money directly from the supplier (who obtains credit checks, employer references and previous landlord references). We have to pass this cost on. It also makes sure each tenant applying is serious about the property - as repeatedly applying for properties knowing you will fail references will quickly become costly.

OpenRent Listing +

Create your fully customisable property listing on OpenRent. It's searchable from our homepage, indexed by Google, and great for linking via Twitter and other social media.

We'll help you promote your property to as many tenants as possible, as well as help you handle enquiries 24/7.

Free Enquiries +

Never pay a penny to receive enquiries - however we send them.

Tenants can request viewings on the phone 9am-9pm, and via email 24/7. We'll alert you by SMS and email at no cost.

We also offer tenant screening and an integrated booking system to help you get the most out of the enquiries we send you - both are completely free and entirely optional.

Viewing & Enquiry Organiser +

OpenRent will help you organise viewings by informing tenants of the booked date and time, as well as sending them a reminder on the day. Again, no additional cost involved.
We'll help you quickly arrange a viewing, or reject a tenant - meaning all parties are kept fully informed!

No Hidden Fees +

We don't hide fees in our contracts, or in our terms. Ever.

We'll always notify you upfront about any costs - and if you don't want a service, you will always have the option to not use it and not pay for it.

High street agents often hide extortionate renewal fees, contract drafting fees, referencing fees or other fees in their service - we want to make it clear OpenRent has no hidden fees and it will always be that way.

OpenRent specialises in helping you let your properties quickly to high quality tenants.

Our average time to let is just 9 days.

We'll contact you from time to time to make sure your property is still available, and simply ask you to let us know once you've found suitable tenants - or ask them to place a holding deposit using Rent Now (that's up to you!).

If your property is harder to let, we will work with you as much as required to find the right tenants quickly. To protect other users, we do reserve the right to take down listings if live for over 3 months after which you will be asked to to re-list (at the same cost as a new advert). We're unaware of this limit affecting a genuine landlord who followed our guidance - so do get in touch if you're struggling to find a tenant.

Upgrade +

If you made the wrong choice, you can upgrade your free advert to ultimate advertising for £29 at any time.

If you find tenants and want to use our Rent Now features (outlined on the right) - we can charge you only once the entire tenancy is set up. This will be at a cost of only £49.

If your rental property has a gas boiler or any gas appliances, an annual safety certificate is a legal requirement.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Energy Performance Certificate

In order to make sure your property attracts the best tenants, we'd always recommend professional quality photographs. If you don't have the equipment, or want help taking top-notch photos, we can send someone out to you!

  • I would like to say big thank you for such a great service. You have managed to get my house rented out within a week!! I had 8 viewings for the house on Saturday, which is a record! Your website is well designed and clean and simple to use (as being a web designer myself, there are not many websites that are as nice as yours), the reference service you have is brilliant and as a landlady makes you have some peace of mind that you can check tenants before they sign any contracts – and for only £20 which is very reasonable, unlike the usual ripping off session that happens at the Estate Agents. To know that there are people at Open Rent that are there to help if you need it, is great. I have used several websites to advertise my house, and you have been far the best - it is safe to say that you are a company that are going places. I wish you all the best, I will be back if my house comes available again, and in the mean time will spread the good word about Open Rent.
