How much do I pay Rent & Returns for their service?
At Rent and Returns we have 2 models for owners to choose from. 1. The profit split will be 80/20 where Rent & Returns will take 20% of the daily rental income.

Once it is covered, the profit split will become 65/35. The profit split will only change to this once your monthly repayments have been completely covered by the rental income. 2. A flat 30% management fee but we will instead share the utilities expenses before the profit split.
