  1. Property Owner's listings at a Glance

    I would love if the Property page (and Tenant page) could be sorted by owners.

    • Customizable Statements

      It would be very helpful to be able to add customizable messages to individual statements, for instance if a tenant is late or has just had a HUD update, etc.

      • Indicate on deposits made to my bank from rental payments, which tenant the payment came from

        Currently, my bank account shows rent deposits as "Forte". In order to reconcile my books each month, my bookkeeper needs to know which deposits came from which tenants. Can you do something, so the deposit indicates which tenant the money is from?

        • Add Owner/Landlord to eSign signatures

          Add Owner/Landlord signature option to eSign documents.

          Certain states require BOTH the landlord and the agent/manager to sign documents for a valid lease.

            • text unpaid rent

              it would be good if there was a way to automatically send out a text message to anyone with unpaid rent on the 5th of the month?

              more people respond to text than email

              • Lead Notify correction

                Lead Tracking Correction

                - System doesn’t send welcome email when registering
                - notify lead, sends a welcome email with e LISTINGS link, which direct the prospect to page where is prompt to input her Email AGAIN, and show full list of Listings instead only those ones meeting her criteria.

                Would be useful to be able to choose from the matching properties which ones we want to send.
                Also useful to be able to generate a flyer- pdf of property to send by email to prospect

                • Multiple types of insurance entries

                  A section to input additional types of insurance that are required by the property owner of their tenant. For our business, which is commercial properties with businesses as tenants, we require liability insurance and also "business interruption insurance". Have a place to enter that and keep up with the status of such would be wonderful. Thank you for your consideration.

                    Is anyway you add Owner Statement to Rentec Pro?
                    I owned 50+ units and have to print 50 times for each unit. Owner Statement only work in Rentec PM. and not in Rentec Pro?

                            • additional tenants and co-signers AUTO ADDED TO PROPERTY AND LEASE

                              Having the co-tenants or any additional tenants on the property automatically added to the PROPERTY AND WHEN THEY SIGN THE LEASE. Its very frustrating that I have to go in and add every additional tenant to the property after I move someone in and then I have to add them to the lease and EVERY SINGLE ADDENDUM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!

                              Which leads me to the other option of sending the lease and all the addendum's I want to send at ONE time. I should not have to go into each addendum separately. I should be able to click…

                              • usability and appearance

                                i think the usability and the layout of the site needs to be significantly updated. i look at tools out there like appfolio and others and see very similar services that look more appealing and deliver similar capabilities at similar costs. while one may argue that rentec may have more functions or whatever, the presentation layer is a huge component that not only sells me, but sells the services i want my tenants to see (which shows that i have "expensive" stuff or things that are usable). just my perspective

                                      • Hide late fees

                                        There is a better way to hide fees from property owners by just a click of a button.
                                        All other property manage softwares
                                        Have it.
                                        Rentec makes it very complicated and time consuming.
                                        This is the biggest complaint so far!
