250 reasons to Pre-Authorize Your Rent Payment

Everything about living at 44 Charles was designed to be easy. The location makes it easy to enjoy the city. The amenities make it easy to live healthy. The Manulife Centre below us makes it easy to run errands, plan a date, catch a flick, stock your fridge and wine rack. And the underground parking makes winter so much easier.

We’ve added to the ease even further with pre-authorized payments for rent, which you can now sign up for in the property management office downstairs off the main lobby.

And if you sign up for Pre-Authorized Rent Payment by December 20th, you’ll be entered into a draw for one of three $250 Manulife Centre gift cards  perfect for last-minute holiday shopping, or holding onto until Eataly opens in 2019.


Why pre-authorize?
Well, for starters, you won’t have to remember to cut cheques. Your rent will be automatically withdrawn from your account every month. Easy.

It’ll also be far easier to manage your money because you won’t have to wait for your cheque to be cashed. On the first of every month, you’ll know exactly what you have.

And if you’re worried about us reaching into your account every month to withdraw money, you shouldn’t be. You’d preauthorize us to take the same amount every month (as in, we wouldn’t be allowed to take any more). And because it’s all done electronically, we don’t actually go into your account so it’s not like we’d be snooping around in there.

Pre-authorization is common practice these days. You may already have it set up for your phone or cable bills.

And should you decide to move, the pre-authorized payment is easy to cancel at any time. Again, just a quick visit to the property management office is all it would take.

The draw for the gift cards will happen on December 21st, which means you have three weeks to switch to pre-authorization. And once you switch, you’ll see how much easier it’ll be for you to pay your rent, balance your accounts and live even better at 44 Charles.
