Designed to Protect Your Property

Give your residents a convenient way to report maintenance issues with the Resident Connect by Rentec Direct mobile app. Maintenance issues that start small and are reported right away can save you from spending hundreds or thousands on a costly repair down the road.

The Resident Connect mobile app lets your tenants “Report an Issue” by writing a message about a maintenance issue and including a few photos they can take, directly from the app. While a renter might be quick to give you a call with a maintenance emergency, a small repair might fall lower on their to-do list. By providing your tenants with a hassle-free maintenance reporting solution you provide convenient ways to protect your property.

Your renters can submit maintenance requests with descriptions, details, and photos, and check the status of the work order in the app.

Designed to Make You Money

The Resident Connect by Rentec Direct mobile app gives your renters the easiest way to pay rent online. Your tenants and residents can securely input bank account information to a make a one-time payment or set up recurring monthly rent payments. Additional rent payment options through the app include credit card or debit card payments.  

Landlords who use online rent payment collection methods are more likely to get paid on time, which means less time and stress you have to spend tracking down late payments.

Renters can set up recurring monthly rent payments so rent gets paid on time every month without a second thought.

Designed to Improve Landlord-Tenant Relations

By providing your renters with convenient communication tools you can improve your landlord-tenant relationship. Poor communication and lack of response to maintenance requests are some of the biggest complaints renters have about management.  

A mobile app for the Rentec Direct Tenant Portal, lets your renters instantly connect with you from their smartphone to pay rent, send maintenance requests, and receive property notices. Better relationships with your residents means less turnover and higher occupancy rates for your properties.
