I have just put our house up for rent via Openrent (first time using Openrent as have always found tenants via Facebook in the past).
I was just looking for thoughts on the Rent Now system. I’ve got a tenancy agreement that I used, and a tenant referencing service I have used previously (though I believe I can still use Openrent for referencing even without using Rent Now), so just wondering what the advantages of using Rent Now are? The major downside as far as I can see is the fact that Openrent keep the initial payments from the tenants for 2 weeks after the tenancy begins. Why would one agree to that vs having the money in your own bank from day 1?
