How it Works

Working with our referencing and insurance partner Van Mildert, we guarantee to pay you the rent in full on the date it is due, regardless of whether the tenant pays the rent or not.

Our Guaranteed Rent Collection Service is available on our Rent Collection and all our Managed Services as an optional extra.

  • In order for a tenancy to be eligible for the Guaranteed Rent Collection Service, all the tenants must complete the referencing process with an “accept” recommendation first.
  • To ensure contractual eligibility, you must use our Bespoke Contract, eSigning and Deposit Lodging Service.
  • Rental payments will be made to the landlord on the agreed rental payment date (we usually set this 2 days later than the move date as banks take 2 days to process the direct debit). We’ll agree this with you at the time of contract creation.
  • Should the tenant fail to pay the rent, Van Mildert will take care of the eviction process (should this be necessary).
  • If the tenant has damaged the property, Van Mildert will pay 50% of the rent for up to 3 months after eviction whilst the property is being refurbished.
  • If the tenant has caused damage to the property which exceeds the value of the deposit, Van Mildert will pursue the tenant in court for these additional costs, regardless of the reason the tenant has left the property.

  • Van Mildert will consider each tenancy on a case-by-case basis, please let us know if you wish to enable this service on your existing tenancy.
  • Simply give us a call if you’d like to discuss switching
