The Reviews Are In

“I never need to worry about nonpayment of rent.”

“I used SingleKey for a background check and it has helped me find higher quality, more financially stable tenants. I have been using SingleKey's Rent Guarantee and automatic Rent Collection for almost a year now too. Peace of mind has a price. I haven't made a claim with them, my hope is that I never need to, but if I do, they will honor their Rent Guarantee program.”

“Very legit. Very professional. Very Canadian! I had a couple of issues at the beginning, but they were addressed quite quickly and properly.  They are a good match to the business of landlording. Have recommended to others in the field.”



SingleKey Customer


““As a landlord, SingleKey is a very important tool to have in your arsenal. The tenant screening tool was particularly useful when evaluating potential tenants as the program allows information to be pulled from various sources. The Rent Guarantee insurance was also very useful. I had a tenant stop paying his rent and SingleKey immediately refunded me my rent without question. I recommend any landlord big or small to give it a try.”



SingleKey Rent Guarantee Customer


“During my experience with the representative at Single Key, I was completely satisfied since everything was explained in detail to me, I fully understood and she answered all my questions. This representative went above and beyond in ensuring that I was quite happy with all resolutions. I'll certainly recommend SingleKey to friends and family. Thank you.”

We will notify both you and the tenant of a missed payment. We suggest landlords reach out to tenants who missed a rent payment to ensure they get paid. If the tenant does not pay rent, then we suggest the landlord follow the appropriate procedures to mediate and / or evict per the appropriate legal guidelines in the dwelling’s jurisdiction.

Note: if you are signed up for the Rent Guarantee, SingleKey will help mediate and evict delinquent tenants working with our paralegal partners.

Typically, it takes 4-5 business days for the rent transfer to be completed. Note that if the payment date falls on a weekend or a holiday, the rent collection process will begin on the next business day.

Yes. We will send a notification email to your tenant(s) 2 days before the rent is due so they can make sure they have sufficient funds in their account.

When setting up your rent collection, you will invite your tenant(s) via email to accept the Rent Collection terms and to connect their bank account.

We want to help tenants improve their credit scores over time. In order to do this, all payments managed by our platform will be reported to the credit bureaus, including on-time, late, and non-payments. Payments made on-time will help improve the score, while missed payments will reduce the score.

Note that SingleKey does NOT collect and store your bank login credentials. We only store your bank account number in order to determine where to deposit your rent payments. We are partnered with a leading Canadian payment provider to facilitate rent payment collection. The security of your information is very important for us and our partners. We employ the latest data encryption and security protocols to keep your information safe.
