As a tenant, expect to receive emails from Hemlane when you need to pay rent online. The system will also send reminders closer to the due date. Your dashboard should also provide notifications on upcoming and late payments to make the process smoother for you.
If you do not receive an email and the Payments tab (left hand panel) has no transactions, then your management has not set up online payments.
Here is the step-by-step process to pay your rent and other management fees online:
Step 1: Set up your bank account
A bank account (or credit card if management accepts credit) is required in order to pay. To view more details on setting up the bank account, you can watch this video "Getting Started: Set up your bank account."
If you are wondering about security, here is more information on the bank level encryption for Hemlane's payments.
Step 2: Pay rent
The Payments tab (on the left hand panel) will provide you with a list of transactions. If the DUE amount is not $0, then there is an outstanding balance due for your lease group (you and your roommates).
You can select the transaction and pay rent via these three steps. If the payment is not past due, you will be able to select a "Charge Later" date in the future.
