Rent Now Pay Later - Ghana is a no upfront fee integrated rental loan platform. It's secure and convenient platform allows Salaried Workers and Owners of Registered Businesses to pay MONTHLY for their rental homes without having to worry about forking out 2yrs rent advance.

How does Rent Now Pay Later work ?

It's easy to use Rent Now Pay Later (RNPL). You first have to make sure you qualify to use our services before discussing or looking at available rental properties. RNPL works in two ways:

• OPTION 1: You complete a short online signup form on this platform and we match you to available rental properties from our own in-house inventory, after we have approved you on verifying the details and supporting documentation you provided in your online application. No upfront fee with this option.

• OPTION 2:You find your own rental property if we are unable to provide you with any from our in--house inventory, or even choose to search for your own rental property without waiting for ours. Once you have located this property, you will be required to get the Landlord to complete some small paperwork for us (including GRA Rent Tax Forms). Once all the paperwork are done, we will pre-finance the asking rent advance to this landlord and then you pay us monthly. No upfront fees if you are looking for this qualified rental property yourself. However, upfront fee required if you want us to help you find an available rental property.
