HousingAnywhere now supports payments meaning your landlord can send you requests for rent, deposits and other fees via the security of the platform. This feature comes at no extra cost to you or the landlord – it is free to use.
There are two ways your landlord can send you a payment request: via the HousingAnywhere chat (you will receive an email notification in addition to the system message) or via an externally-shared link. We recommend you and your landlord use the HousingAnywhere chat to request payments. This way we can:
- Send you reminders in the lead up to the payment’s due date (7 days before, 3 days before & on the due date itself)
- Securely hold any of your payments that are sent before you’ve moved in. Just like the first month’s rent, we will only payout the landlord 48 hours after you’ve arrived at the property
You can fulfill payment requests using all major credit cards.
