You will need to pay the deposit and first month's rent to OpenRent in full, and the contract states that this must be paid straight away. If this is not possible, please discuss and agree a specific date to pay this balance with the landlord and we will happily accommodate this.
If you have agreed with your landlord to pay a partial amount of the balance, you pay this by debit card or bank transfer. The details will have been provided automatically once the contract was signed by everyone and will be available on the website.
The landlord will be notified of any partial payments made this way, but please bear in mind that the full balance should be paid as soon as possible and certainly in advance of the move-in date, to avoid any delays to the start of the tenancy.
If we receive a payment that includes the entire first month's rent and a portion of the security deposit, we must receive the remainder of the final balance within 25 days. This is a requirement that ensures we are setting up a legally compliant tenancy for landlords and tenants alike.
What if my landlord doesn't agree to a partial payment schedule?
If you cannot agree a payment schedule or partial payment option with your landlord you will be asked to pay the full balance on signing, as the contract states on Page 3, Clause 2.
