As part of Rent Now, we collect the holding deposit, register the security deposit and also collect your first month's rent.
Protecting Your Money
This means you aren't just paying money upfront to a private landlord you met online. You are using OpenRent - the UK's largest letting agent - to handle your money until you move in to your new home. We then pass the money onto the landlord if everything goes as planned.
This keeps you safe while you move into your new home.
We Register Your Security Deposit
We also make sure your security deposit is safely protected in a government-backed scheme called DPS. We'll make sure you get all the necessary information about how the deposit works, and how you can contest any deductions your landlord might want to make at the end of the tenancy.
Ask Your Landlord About Rent Now
Using Rent Now is designed to make things, fast, easy, safe and secure for both you and your landlord. If you are unsure whether your landlord wants to use Rent Now or not, just get in touch with them and discuss how to proceed.
