Online Payment Security for Landlords and Tenants

Ensuring online rent payments are made accurately, securely, and on time is the most important concern for landlords, property managers and tenants. It is also a most contentious point often leading to miscommunication, misunderstanding, and, worst case scenario, unlawful detainer court action. iManageRent has the solution: online rent payments using SSL protocol.

SSL (“Secure Socket Protection”) protocol is a security service used commonly for credit card, debit card, and bank-to-bank transactions over the internet. It is a commercial product offering various levels of encryption and algorithms. These “certificates” when installed on the hosting server bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details allowing a secure connection between the client browser and the hosting server. This secure protocol is used by financial institutions, banking organizations, and NASA to name a few. Even social media websites such as Facebook incorporate SSL technology into their client server tools.

Tenants, landlords and property managers can send and receive online payments with confidence with iManageRent tools. There is never a risk of a rent check lost in the mail or the dreaded stamping of a NSF (“Non-sufficient Funds”) rejection of the physical check. No need for writing postdated checks and the accompanying fear of check kiting allegations as you move monies between accounts. The monthly, landlord/manager race to the bank to deposit rent checks only to experience long, teller-window lines is now at an end. Funds are available to the landlord/manager within 3-4 business days of when rent is due and timely paid. Tenants need not lose balance interest while rent checks are in transit. For many tenants, a traditional, paper draft is the only physical check he/she writes per month thanks to debit cards. Now that final manual check writing inconvenience is removed with iManageRent online rent payment tool.

iManageRent is secured by the highest level data encryption offered by Symantec™. This security level is verified to you by the Symantec Norton Secured ™ seal present in the footer of our website. Your online rent payment information is only stored at the financial institutions handling tenant and landlord/manager payments. iManageRent does not hold your funds or act as your financial agent. Finally, tenants, landlords and property managers agree. Online rent payments using iManageRent is an internet solution for safe, secure, and reliable online rent payments.
