Guide to Rental Collection Services

As a landlord, one of the keys to success to renting out your property is an effective and efficient rental collection. Basically, this ensures that your tenants are paying you on time and in an efficient manner. 

Sometimes, the best option is to let your agent collect the rent for you; it’s often stress-free, and with Mashroom, it’s also free! Keep reading for more information. 

What is a rental collection service?

A rental collection service works for you, by collecting your tenants rent. In other words, you pay your agent company to be responsible for collecting the rent, and they will then transfer it into your account.

Generally, they require a handling fee, but usually this is all sorted before the transfer takes place. However, this is where Mashroom is one step ahead. If you are renting out your property with us, there is no added charge for rental collection. 

Why is it useful?

Using a rental collection service is useful because it’s one less thing you have to think about. The agent will be in charge of collecting and transferring the rent to you, and if a tenant is late with their payment, the agent will deal with it. 

It also means that there is a third party between you and the tenant, which makes it easier to solve any disputes.
