How can a property management company use ClearNow to collect rent?

A property manager can enroll in ClearNow to receive electronic rent payments by completing and submitting the ClearNow Property Manager enrollment agreement with their bank documentation. Once their ClearNow account is set up, they may have the tenant and property owner submit their enrollment materials. The owner will receive owner proceeds from the tenant’s rent payments. The property manager would assign the amount he/she should receive and the amount the property owner should receive from each rent payment. Both of their deposits would occur three banking days after the tenant’s debit day.

How Do I Enroll a Tenant Who is On A Month-to-Month Lease?

You may enroll a tenant on a month-to-month lease the same way you would enroll any other tenant. Have your tenants complete and submit the Tenant Enrollment Agreement with their bank documentation to Support@ClearNow.com. Once we process their materials, they will be added to your account, and you will receive an email instructing you to set their rent amount and lease end date. When you input the lease end date, we recommend you set it for three to six months out so you don’t have to log in every month and extend the date. You may unenroll the tenant before the lease end date as long as it is at least one banking day before the debit day.

These dates include your tenants’ next scheduled debit day, your credit day, and the deadlines to finalize, block, or unenroll a tenant. They also show the deadlines to adjust a tenant’s rent amount or lease end date. If you do not have a tenant enrolled during a specific payment period, then you can disregard the important dates.
