RinggitPay Rental Simplifies Rent Collection for Malaysian Landlords

by May 29, 2024

Malaysia’s rental market has been booming in recent years, spurred by rapid urbanisation and population growth.

This surge has led to a high demand for residential, commercial, and industrial properties in urban areas like Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Johor Bahru.

As cities expand and more people flock to these bustling hubs, the rental business landscape has transformed into a lucrative venture.

However, with this opportunity comes the challenge of ensuring stable cash flow and timely rent collection.

The Challenges of Rent Collection

Starting a rental business in Malaysia can be rewarding, but it requires meticulous planning and management.

One of the primary concerns for landlords is maintaining a consistent cash flow, which hinges on tenants paying their rent promptly. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done.

To understand the struggles faced by landlords, home-grown payment platform RinggitPay conducted interviews with several property owners across Malaysia. Here are some of their common challenges:

Frequent Payment Reminders: Many landlords find themselves in the constant cycle of reminding tenants to pay their rent. This task is not only time-consuming but also frustrating, especially when tenants continuously delay their payments.

Overlooked Missed Payments: It’s not uncommon for landlords to overlook missed payments due to the sheer number of tenants and properties they manage. This oversight can lead to significant financial losses and complicated disputes with tenants.

Lack of Record Keeping: When disputes arise regarding rent payments, having accurate records is crucial. Many landlords reported difficulties in maintaining detailed records, making it challenging to resolve conflicts efficiently.

Dependence on Property Management Companies: Some landlords even with smaller portfolio of properties often rely on property management companies to handle rent collection. While this can be convenient, it also cuts into their profits and limits their control over their properties.

Whatever could be the reason for the rental payment delays and disputes, the affected party in the end would be the landlord. To curtail these problems, landlords should consider smarter ways to monitor tenant’s payment and take actions accordingly.
