Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know if my Interest Tier is changing?

You will be notified at the start of the month if there are any changes to your Interest Tier for that month. You can also check your status at any time if you log in and navigate to the Baselane Banking tab.

Do I receive the additional 0.46% APY for collecting rent on one of my Baselane bank accounts, or do I have to collect rent into each of my Baselane bank accounts?

The additional APY is applied to all bank accounts, provided that at least one account has received rent via Baselane's Rent Collection tool in the last 3 months.
