RentHelper, Inc. was founded in 2016 after a successful pilot conducted by MassLandlords staff and member businesses.
The pilot demonstrated that we could help renters with low educational attainment and cash flow challenges pay rent electronically without risk of overdraft and without a computer. It also demonstrated faster collection for less effort from the owner. The pilot even successfully avoided an eviction by increasing communication and creating a payment plan that both parties could live with.
Since then, part of the MassLandlords team, along with outside developers, have built RentHelper into a stand-alone service. It is available for MassLandlords members and members of the general public.
RentHelper’s mission is to help renters and owners live better together.
