If you enlist the help of a property management company to manage your rental, you may be curious how rent is collected from the tenant and then forwarded to your bank account.

On this episode of Five Minute Friday, Bob walks us through North County Property Group’s best practices around the flow of funds in a rental property. He explains when rent is due and where it’s deposited, discussing how NCPG tracks incoming rent payments and why his team offers tenants a five-day grace period.

Bob goes on to introduce us to the Tenant Portal, an online platform where NCPG renters pay by eCheck or credit card, and describe what happens if rent is not paid within the five-day grace period. Listen in to understand how the accounting department pays vendors the first week of the month and sends property owners a monthly statement in parallel with their distribution deposit.
