As easy as 1-2-3
The Rent Guarantee program includes:
– Guaranteed Rental income for up to 12 months or $60,000 per lease

– Unlimited coverage of Legal Fees incurred during the eviction process

The program fee is 4.99% of the monthly rent, charged monthly.
We can deduct the fee when we process your monthly rent payments (optional) or we can charge your credit card on a monthly basis for the term of the lease. After the initial lease term the Rent Guarantee goes month-to-month and you can cancel by providing 30 days notice.
Since we collect the rent for you, we will know right away if the tenant hasn’t paid and we will take action to contact the tenant and collect the rent. If the tenant is unresponsive, we will continue to pay your rent for up to 12 months while working with our paralegal team to remove the delinquent tenant.
In the case of negligent or wilful property damage by the tenant, please notify us within the next business day and we will be reimbursed up to $10,000 of damages if the tenant refuses to pay.
To start the Rent Guarantee we need the following documents:
1. Credit Report for each tenant – we can help with this
2. Signed lease agreement by the tenant
3. Proof of income in the form of recent Paystubs, T4, Bank statement or Employment Letter
We also recommend that the landlord performs a Pre‐Inspection report, including images of the property detailing the condition of the unit prior to tenant move‐in; as well as proof of property and liability insurance
The good news is that we do not qualify tenants based solely on their credit score. To ensure affordability, we require that the rent cannot exceed 45% of tenant’s gross household-income.
Yes, we can guarantee new and mid-lease tenants. For existing tenants, we simply require confirmation that the tenant has made their past rent payments on time.
