How Long Does It Take To Get Started With ClearNow?

To enroll in ClearNow, both the landlord/property manager and their tenants must complete and submit their individual enrollment agreements and bank documentation to Support@ClearNow.com. The landlord/property manager’s account must be set up before we can enroll their tenants. We must receive complete tenant enrollment materials at least 10 days before their first debit day. This ensures we have adequate time to notify new tenants of the date of their first debit and the amount they will be debited. Both landlords and tenants will receive prompt email notification regarding the status of their enrollment materials.
