I am currently a landlord and want to switch from using an estate agent to OpenRent. The tenants we currently have want to stay in the house. Would they still need to pay the referencing fees etc? If anyone could outline the set up fees I would really appreciate it.
Hi Kirsty, here’s a comment George made that explains how to migrate your tenancy to OpenRent.
You can skip the referencing if you are happy with your current tenants.
In this case it will be free for the tenants and the charge for you would be just £49.
Future renewals will be totally free!
Not uncommon at all for landlords to want to migrate tenancies onto OpenRent!
What this requires is us setting this up as an entirely new
Rent Now tenancy, which basically means all of the above (aside from referencing and Rent Collection) needs to be followed.
I appreciate returning a tenant’s deposit may not be the smoothest of solutions here, though this is what’ll need to take place if you wanted us to handle the tenancy I’m afraid.
If you want any more information on this, just…
