Utility Expense Management

Get Control of Your Utility Costs – and Your Bottom Line

Let us pay and manage all of your utility bills. Not only that, but we’ll carefully analyze each utility invoice, searching for billing errors and opportunities to save money. We dispute any errors on your behalf, and can even bill your residents for their share of utilities. PayLease manages the entire utility process, leaving you with significant time savings and improved NOI.

Did you know that 38% of utility invoices contain an error?

We do.

That’s because our utility experts routinely catch billing errors that go unnoticed by the untrained eye. With our Utility Expense Management solution, you won’t think you’re being billed correctly, you’ll KNOW it. Here’s how else we deliver peace of mind:

When we find an error, we’ll dispute it on your behalf.
