      Are there any fees for preparing leases or lease renewals?
      No, not at all. At Instarent, we allow you to take charge of your leasing process and therefore you create the lease agreement and handle all the renewal fees yourself.
      How do you deal with arrears or other tenant problems?

      At Instarent we are here to support you. We help you find a good tenant by generating background checks on all tenants, to give you peace of mind and to help avoid troublesome tenants.

      Our platform automatically tracks arrears and will notify you when tenants are falling behind. We have found tenants are less likely to fall behind if they are constantly being reminded of their arrears. We also automatically contact tenants by email and SMS and we follow up continuously to ensure that you get paid.
