Six Golden Rules for Posting Your Listing on Rentler
1. Only one listing is allowed for one specific property and category. The owner should choose which property type best describes their home. If a listing is posted in more than one category, Rentler reserves the right to remove the second listing.
2. Listings run for 30 days but may be renewed upon expiration. Listings may also be renewed every 14 days by deactivating and then re-listing it manually. Deactivating a listing and posting the same one over and over is not allowed. Rentler may suspend accounts for overposting.
3. Postings with discriminatory language will be deactivated by Rentler and may be activated once the owner reviews and changes the content. Discriminatory is defined in the Fair Housing Act as something that “prohibits advertising the sale or rental of a dwelling indicating preference of discrimination based on race, color, religion, familial status, disability, and national origin.”
4. To define the property type you want your listing to fall under, use this guide:
- House - A one unit dwelling structure. This usually refers to a single-family detached home that has open space on all four sides and is not attached to any other structure. Typically you will select this if you are renting out an entire home to one renter or group of renters.
- Apartment - A suite of rooms forming one residence, typically in a building containing a number of similar groups of rooms.
- Condo/Multiplex - A housing structure that is either a.) part of a bigger unit or building, where the owner of the condo owns the interiors independently and the other services in the building jointly with other condo owners.
Or b.) a house divided into multiple apartments, with a separate entrance for each.
- Townhome - A building containing a number of individually owned residences, connected side-by-side.
- In-Law/Basement - An apartment located below street level, underneath another structure - usually a house. Includes a separate entrance and amenities. An in-law apartment can also refer to a detached rental structure on the same property.
- Single Room - A room for rent with shared kitchen and common areas within the same building structure. Single rooms cannot be listed under Apartments or Condo/Townhomes.
- Sublease/Student Contract - This refers to the transfer of a lease from a current tenant to another person, but with the original tenant retaining some right or interest under the original lease. A student contract can be a sublease or a lease for housing that is approved by a higher education institution or rented to someone based on lease parameters that work with students.
5. For any rental communities over 30 units, you must upgrade to a paid package in order to post listings. For rental communities under 30 units, you will get one (1) free active listing. Ads run for 30 days but may be renewed upon expiration. When upgraded you can post multiple floor plans at a time.
For rentals in all categories other than apartments/community properties, you may have one (1) free active listing per company. If you create multiple user accounts for a single company, all extra accounts will be migrated to one account. If you continue to abuse the system then legal action will be taken.
6. Rentler reserves the right to deactivate and or delete miscategorized listings of those posted under an incorrect category.
