Property Managers and Renters Love the Tenant Portal:

Stephen S. Landlord

This app offers just the functionality that tenants need without making it too difficult or clunky. I love how the payments page shows a history of charges and payments and hides the background details that the landlord put in which is the correct way to do it. I've never had this app crash and it easily allows the tenant to set up one time or ongoing rental payments and allows them to submit maintenance requests. Great job.

Ben N. Tenant

I love it! Soo much easier to make monthly payments and report any type of issue at home!

Frequently Asked Questions

As a tenant, if your property manager or landlord uses Rentec Direct you can pay rent by logging into the Tenant Portal or by using The Resident Connect app available for both iOS and Android.

Yes, Rentec Direct has an app that tenants can use to pay rent, submit maintenance requests, and communicate with their property manager. The app is called Resident Connect and is available for both iOS and Android. Tenants can also log in to the Tenant Portal with any web browser to pay rent as well.

Rentec Direct has an integration with Rent Reporters which enables tenants with good payment history to have that history positively impact their credit score. This promotes on-time payments and reduces delinquencies. This is offered at no cost to Rentec Direct clients. Tenants can sign up for this service from within the Tenant Portal or the Resident Connect app. Learn more about the Rent Reporters integration.

Yes, Rentec Direct makes this a simple 2-click process where you enter the property owner's bank account information and enter a dollar amount and the funds will automatically transfer from your account to theirs. A payment to an owner would be an outgoing ACH transaction, which has a cost of 50c.

Yes, in addition to ACH, tenants can pay rent with a credit or debit card. You may configure a processing fee for credit card payments which will offset your merchant processing costs.

ACH payments are transmitted to your bank account within 2 days; however, banks vary on how long it takes for them to show it as deposited into your account. Larger national banks often show the payment as posted or pending within 24 hours of it being transmitted. Smaller credit unions and regional banks can sometimes take an extra day or two. Credit card payments are transmitted to your bank on the business day following the payment.

All landlords and property managers with a business banking account are eligible. The business must be listed in your state's business registry and be in current good standing. Unregistered sole proprietors qualify as well. You just need to have a business checking account for the funds to deposit into, as the banks will not transmit rental payments to personal bank accounts. If you don't have a business checking account, they are easy to setup at most banks for both registered businesses and sole-proprietors.

Once you have a Rentec Direct account, you can apply for a merchant account from within the software. Setting up your Rentec account takes less than a minute and the merchant application process takes about 10-15 minutes. Most merchant approvals happen within 1 business day. You could be receiving online payments from your tenants as early as tomorrow.
