Introducing Tenant E-Signatures for Faster and Easier Tenant Enrollments

We’re happy to announce that we have incorporated e-signatures into our online enrollment process for tenants.

Tenants no longer need to print, sign, scan, and email the tenant form to us. Recently, many tenants have let us know that they did not have access to a printer and wanted to complete the enrollment process just with their smartphone. Their wish has been granted!

Tenants can now use their smartphone or computer to complete the tenant form entirely online. After they complete the form online, they just need to email a photo of their voided check, bank statement, or direct deposit form.

It is easy to get tenants to use our e-signature process. Landlords simply log into their ClearNow accounts and click on the ‘Add Tenants’ menu choice. Follow the instructions to “Email the form to your tenant”. The email that tenants receive gives them the link to use the new online signature process.

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.
