    You are just a few mouse clicks away from reporting delinquent tenants for a small flat fee. If the tenant pays the debt you may cancel the collection to either remove the negative mark from their credit or have it show as a paid collection. You keep 100% of any money collected while on the flat fee program.

  • No Court Judgment Required

    No Court Judgment Required

    You don’t need to take the tenant to court or fill out landlord legal forms to collect their debt, all you need to do is show that rent is owed. If you have gone to court and have not received payment, you can also use Rent Recovery Service.



Flat Fee Delinquent Rent Collection Service 

When your tenant stops paying their rent, the additional costs of hiring an attorney or expensive debt collection agency just adds insult to injury.  Rent Recovery Service was created to get landlords their unpaid rent without the exorbitant fees associated with a traditional contingency rent collection agency or the necessity of going to court. 

You do not need a court judgment to use Rent Recovery’s services. Proof of the delinquency is all you need. Additionally, you can utilize Rent Recovery Service to collect the unpaid rent awarded to you if you have already received a judgment against the tenant. 

Starting at just $29.99, Rent Recovery’s flat fee rent collection services, which are only available online, include: 

  • Processing, printing and mailing an effective collection letter to your deadbeat tenant by the next business day. (The fee includes postage.)  

Your delinquent tenant will receive a professional letter from a licensed debt collection agency advising them of exactly how much they owe you and instructions on how to satisfy their debt to you. If you order a multiple letter package, follow-ups are mailed at regular intervals. 

  • Reporting the tenant to the three main credit bureaus (Transunion, Equifax and Experian). 

At the same time the rent collection letter is dispatched, your tenant’s delinquency will immediately be reported to the three major credit bureaus, thereby warning other landlords and businesses that this person does not follow through on their financial obligations. Their credit score will most likely be lowered and other creditors will be wary of doing business with someone who has a history of chronically unpaid rent.  

Once the tenant has paid their delinquent rent, the collection order can be cancelled. The negative entry will be removed from their credit report or you can have it shown as a paid collection. 

If you need to step up your efforts to collect the money owed to you, Rent Recovery’s instant rollover feature enables you to easily transfer the account to the contingency collection program. 

Rent Recovery’s flat fee collection services DO NOT include a commission or contingency fee. Payment will come directly to you from the tenant in the return envelope along with a paystub provided by Rent Recovery.  

You keep 100% of the money collected without completing any legal forms or taking the tenant to court.

Flat Fee Debt Collection Options 

For small additional fees, your collection service can be enhanced by the following options: 

  1. Certified Mail with Tracking. In order to be certain that your collection letter has been received, Rent Recovery Services offers the option to send the letter Certified Mail with a signature required and a USPS tracking number. Subsequent letters are sent first class mail. Additional cost: $17.99. 
  2. Collection Service Call Center. A trained collection agent will call your tenant up to four times in order to complete one call. Pursuant to consumer protection laws, no message will be left. Additional cost: $19.99. 

Contingency Collection Service 

While the flat fee delinquent rent collection service is very effective, some clients prefer to utilize the contingency collection services for their more recalcitrant tenants. 

Payment for this service is dependent upon the successful recovery of a part or all of the renter’s debt to you. The fee is a portion of the delinquent rent collected. If Rent Recovery is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay anything. That is why our team of licensed investigators, attorneys and collection experts are so persistent and will not quit on your account until you have received the money due to you. 

All necessary documentation is prepared by paralegals and attorneys at no additional cost to you. A national network of legal advisors has been assembled to assist with collections throughout the United States. (Rent Recovery Service does not service accounts in Massachusetts or Colorado.) 

Rent Recovery’s exclusive electronic surveillance software tracks the financial status of every debtor, every day, anywhere in the country.  If they attempt to get credit, apply for a job, open a new bank account, purchase real estate or submit an application for an apartment, Rent Recovery is notified immediately.  

Rent Recovery Service does not limit itself to only delinquent renters; any type of business debt can be collected for you.
