1.   Prerequisite

1.1. OTR – the OTR service is an add-on service only for subscribers of the Extended+ insurance plan. The subscriber must sign or have signed the tenancy agreement via Speedsign. OTR prohibits tenancy agreements which have more than one rental value across the stipulated tenancy period.

1.2. OCD – the OCD service is a complimentary service provided by SPEEDHOME only for subscribers who have purchased Allianz Landlord insurance coverage through SPEEDHOME, subject to the terms of Paragraph 3. 

2.   SPEEDHOME’s Obligation – OTR

2.1. During the insurance policy’s insured period and on a monthly basis (excluding first month), SPEEDHOME will perform OTR transfer to the subscriber for a fixed sum of amount.

2.2. Each OTR transfer will be equivalent to one month’s rental and will be transferred no later than the monthly rental due date as per stated in the tenancy agreement and only if there is an unpaid rental invoice. OTR transfers will be made only up to the insurance coverage amount under the Allianz Landlord insurance purchased by the subscriber.

2.3. If the subscriber’s tenant pays SPEEDHOME after the due date, the funds will not be transferred to the subscriber as the subscriber has already received payment via OTR.

2.4. “Due date” is referring to the latest amended due date agreed upon by the subscriber and tenant if the due date was amended after the tenancy agreement was signed.
