You won't need to involve your landlord at all. You can signup without their approval.
To sign up without your landlord being involved, you'll need to be able to send your payment in the mail. Your landlord must also receive their payment at a physical address, as we cannot send rent checks to PO Boxes at this time.
We only use their information to verify the payment details and to make sure the rent is being sent to the right place and the right person.
Once you setup your account, we simply mail them a check just like bill pay. They won't ever need to sign up for you to continue building credit.
If your landlord is already signed up with RentTrack you'll see a faster turnaround time on your payments, and you may also see a reduced technology fee.
