Collect Rent from Anywhere

Rent, direct-deposited in your account. Financials with one click. The good life.

Rent just shows up in your bank account. That’s it.

It’s quick, it’s simple: after a same-day approval where you register your banking and business information, you can start collecting rent payments online.

Total transfer time is only 2-3 days – the renter submits payment, and it appears in your bank account.

Faster than waiting for snail mail, depositing the check at the bank, waiting for it to clear, and all the other headaches that come with paper checks.

You can even track payments in transit, in real time!

Automatic Income Tracking & Ledgers

Rent is deposited right into your bank account. Which is awesome.

But just as great is the fact that our online landlord app automatically tracks all rent payments in your online ledger.

With a click of a button, you can generate income and expense reports, Schedule E tax reporting, and more.

Fast, Simple, On-Time Payments with Multiple Options

Your renters can choose to pay by ACH (bank transfer/eCheck), by credit card, or by debit card.

Why would anyone want to write out paper checks, mail envelopes, and balance an old-school checkbook, when they can click a button to pay electronically?

Your renters can even set up automated recurring rent payments!

 

No Cost to You

As a free member, you can still take advantage of our online rent collection service!

Depending on your membership level, your tenant may or may not be responsible for a small surcharge. (See our pricing table below for details – we’re big on transparency.)

Bank-Level Security, Full PCI Compliance

We don’t mess around when it comes to digital security.

Between our partnership with ThreatMatrix to utilize their powerful, proprietary security, our Level 1 PCI Compliance, and our 100% SSL-secured website, we’ve got you covered where it counts: your money’s security.

Oh, and did we mention that your renters never, ever see your banking details? For that matter, neither do we: it’s all handled securely by our partner bank.

Quick Setup

“Automatic rent payments sounds great once it’s set up, but how much work is it to set up?” 

Glad you asked! It’s actually pretty quick and easy. You just upload a few documents and fill out a form, and our banking partner processes your account in 24-48 hours. Then you’re all set, and can sit back to watch the rents flow into your bank account!

Coming Soon: Rent Reporting to Credit Bureaus

Ever wish you could report your tenants’ rent payments to the credit bureaus every month?

Soon you’ll be able to.

We’ll report every on-time payment to help your renters build their credit. And we’ll report every late payment too, to incentivize them to pay on time!

Or Try RentDeduct™: Rent Deducted from Your Tenant’s Paycheck

Money burns a hole in many people’s pockets. They have every intention to pay their rent and all their other bills each month… but they don’t. So why not make sure you get paid before they do?

Every time your renter gets paid, a portion of their paycheck goes directly into a secure escrow account (the rest still goes to them). On the second business day of every month, SparkRental automatically deposits the monthly rent into your bank account.

Simple, fast, secure.

The rent is direct deposited right into your account, so you don’t have to worry about mail delays, paper checks or bank runs. In fact, you don’t have to worry about anything; on-time rent just shows up in your bank account every month.

Pretty nifty, eh?

Deducting the rent directly from the renter’s paycheck costs 1.9% of the rent for the landlord, and 1.9% of the rent for the renter. Or the landlord can choose to pay the entire fee themselves, or select that the renter will pay the entire fee. Your choice!

It’s that simple and transparent.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does upgrading to the paid subscription require a contract?

Absolutely not. We want to earn your business every day. You can upgrade to a Spark Rental subscription and cancel the next day if you choose. That’s your choice. Your long-term success as a landlord is our goal!

Is my information safe with Spark Rental?

Spark Rental is safe and secure. Our tenant screening partner is required to meet stringent security standards. Because they have exceeded these security standards, the same tight security is passed onto you, our customer. Additionally, our partner is a PCI-DSS compliant and SAS 70 Type II Certified processor who has a data center located in Houston, TX and has been certified by an independent auditor to be SAS 70 Type II compliant. Well, what that all means is your data is as safe and secure as it gets!

What's the application process like for my renter?

Inviting an applicant to fill out an electronic rental application is your first step. Many landlords ask what information will be collected from an applicant. An applicant’s rental application consists of Personal Information, Contact Information, Address History, Employers, Other Income, Assets, Liabilities, Questionnaire, References, Pets/Vehicles/Occupants, Documents, Authorization, and Electronic Signature.

What is the tenant portal and what features are available?

A number of additional features are included within the Tenant Portal, such as:

Online Payments
After inviting a tenant to the Tenant Portal, they will see an option to “Make a Payment”. If you have activated online rent collection, you have the ability to collect rent electronically from your tenants. You must also activate Online Rent Collection before a tenant is able to make E-Payments. Online Rent Collection is only available to Premium and Ultimate subscribers of Spark Rental.

Rent Deduct is also available where the tenant has their rent deducted directly from their pay check.

Statements
With the Tenant Portal, an electronic statement outlining the lease terms, payment terms, and other relevant information are available to the tenant each month. New charges are added to the electronic Statement monthly for Rent Due and Outstanding Balances. Your tenants are automatically kept informed of what they owe.

Payments Accounts
After you enable Online Rent Collection, your tenant has the ability to setup individual payment accounts for making the monthly rent.

Maintenance Requests
Our mobile-friendly platform gives you the freedom to accept maintenance requests on your Smart Phone. Every landlord is on-the-go and it is sometimes easier to categorize maintenance requests and keep a running log by receiving them electronically. We make it easy for you to do so. Your tenants can submit maintenance requests directly from the Tenant Portal.

Secure Messaging
Communicating with your tenants is more important than ever in the highly litigious business of being a landlord. E-mail is insecure and can be misinterpreted. To protect yourself legally while projecting a professional image, we offer a fully secure messaging system. You can communicate important information to your tenant through our system while resting assured that your communication is saved forever in our highly secure databases. If you ever find yourself in court about a tenant dispute, you can easily pull all communication from the messaging system.

Can I print the rental application?

Of course. We make it easy for to save off a PDF version of the rental application or print it directly within Spark Rental. When viewing the applicant, there is an option to “Download (PDF)”.

If I'm using RentDeduct, what happens at the end of the lease term?

As the lease end date approaches, our system will email you to ask whether the tenant is staying or moving out. If they’re moving, then after the last rent deposit we’ll refund any leftover balance to the renter.
