Each year, we must evaluate our policies and procedures to ensure that we know all of our customers. This means we know that the landlord you are paying is really the owner of the property, or that the renter who is paying you has really authorized the payment. It is not possible to use RentHelper to transact bank funds in a manner inconsistent with a housing payment.
