How To Pay Rent
making things as easy as we can

For your convenience, we have several methods by which you may pay your rent.  It is important to remember that rents are due on the 1st day of every month, but are not considered late until the 5th day of the month after 5 p.m. (regardless of whether the 5th falls on a weekend or holiday).  We accept personal checks, money orders and cashier’s checks made out to Syrus Properties, Inc.  Please include your apartment number with your check.
 

  1. MAIL:  You may mail your rent to our main office in Novato at the following address:

Syrus Properties, Inc.
885 Olive Avenue, Suite C
Novato, CA 94945

 
  1. DROP OFF:   You may drop your rent off at our main office (there is a slot in the door for after hours) OR,

if your building has a Rent Box installed near the Manager’s Office or Mailboxes, you may drop your rent in the Rent Box.  Please note that the rent boxes are emptied for the final time each month on the 5th around 5:15 p.m. If you put your rent in the Rent Box after that time, your rent will be late and subject to a late fee.

 
  1. AUTO BILL PAY:    Most banks offer free online automatic bill pay.  This is a great way to pay your rent, but there are some things to consider if you choose this method:
  1. It generally takes 6-8 days from the time your payment leaves your bank to the time that we receive the check in our office.  With this in mind, you must set the payments up to leave your bank around the 25th to 28th of the prior month in order to ensure timely receipt by the 5th of the month.
  1. The checks we receive are very generic and do not always include the information we need to credit your payment to your account.  It is very important that you enter an account number for your payment and the account number should include the name of your building and your unit number.  If you choose to use this method, please feel free to give us a call and we can help you with the account number.
