  1. Mid Lease Property Report

    I would love to see a "property report" component added to Rentec that allows me to create and manage my required mid lease reports to owners.

    The features I envision are:
    1. REMINDER - You have "X" time (2 weeks?/1 mo?) until the mid-term report is due and
    2. Use this generic template / document to create a Property Report that allows us to inform and update the owner of the property status and condition.

    I know home inspectors have docs/reports that they use to do this. It would be helpful if I could use or customize a few property…

    • Add A Pro Forma Report for Owners

      Add a pro-forma report for the owners to be able to see the past and a forecast for income/expenses.

      The owner should be able to specify what time frame - for months in the past, it would show actual expenses and for future months, it would show expected rents (from leases), any recurring expenses and any manually added single expenses. The report would have categories of income and expenses that can be expanded to see the detail

      To give you a feel, I am attaching a screen shot of the pivot table I use in Excel to provide that view

      • print a simple list of all open work ordes on one page with apt, date, problem so you can get quick snap shot of open work orders

        on summary page have option for snapshot view of all open work orders with apt, date opened, and problem so you do not have to go to each individual property to see what the work order is. Also list should be printable to give to maintenance person.

        • 30/60/90 day delinquencies - invoice and reports

          Would like to show delinquent amounts on invoices to tenant and owner (HOA) at the bottom of invoices. Generally, payments are applied to most recent balance in my association so the residual amounts in arrears would be nice to note on invoices or a report to individual tenants/owners.

            • Allow creation of a report for "not in any category/property"

              There is no good way to find all transactions that have "None" for the category, property, tenant or bank. Sometimes "None" makes perfect sense but sometimes it is a typo when entering a transaction. Especially for category and property - having "None" here is often a mistake.

              The "Category Ledger" report should allow selecting "None" for the category to assist in finding these.

              The Expense, Income, and Exp/Inc reports should list income and expense items that don't have a category. Same thing with the Operating Statement reports.

              Not quite as important but still useful would be to allow selecting "None"…

              • Form of Payment for Security deposits

                We collect Security deposit and they sometimes pay with a Credit Card. How can I add Credit card as a form of payment.

                • AP Reports

                  It would be nice to be able to input expenses but not necessarily pay them right away. If you could manage if a vendor had been paid, if a check had been printed. The ability to run an AP listing showing all the required payments and what had and had not been paid for a set period. Also it would nice if there was a pre-check report with the check printing so you could review all payments that were cut in a set run without having to run additional copies of the checks since they include all bank info.

                  • Reports

                    1) Move in report over a range of dates get a listing of tenants that move in
                    2) Move out report-over a range of dates getting a list of tenant that moved out (this reports needs to include inactive and archived tenants)
                    3) more sophisticated rent roll report per property versus a tenant rent roll. This would show the history of rent increases or decreases during a specific date range. This is useful for those trying to determine market rents and adjust increases/decreases for the next year

                    • Add 'All Owners' as a filter option when pulling reports.

                      The Arizona Department of Real Estate is requesting that I provide them with balance reports consolidating all of the owner information in one report instead of individual reports for each owner. Could you please add 'All Owners' as one of the options under the Choose Account section when selecting a filter?

                      • Make a Report that shows all charges for individual tenant

                        It would be very helpful for us if there where a report that had all charges broken down, like rent, taxes, pet rent, w/d rental, reserved parking all in one report than having to print individual tenants statement. If we had something that showed the rent frequency also would be great, ie: monthly, bi-weekly or weekly. Thank you

                        • Add Bank Account as a column to the Account Ledger reports

                          If I forget to enter the bank account when posting an expense, there doesn't seem to be any way to search back through all expenses to find these transactions.

                          If you could add bank account to the account ledger, this should be an easy way to show if the bank account was mistakenly not entered when the expense was posted.

                                • Delinquency Report

                                  Your current delinquency report is sorted by tenant's last name. This report should be sorted by delinquency amount!!!! Or better yet, have a clickable column heading so the user can choose how to sort this report. Also, I'd like to see additional columns in this report. . . for example: 'Monthly Rent'. If a tenant is $600 delinquent and their rent is $600/month, that is much different than a tenant who is $600 delinquent and their rent is only $300/month.

                                  • Tenant Ledger Report to include option to run "0000 Charge" report.

                                    Currently the Category ledger only pulls paid charges (income) not posted charges. I would like the ability to have the Tenant Category Ledger be sorted by unit number or name. Currently it is only by name and that makes accounting difficult. Unless you can make this report an Excel export in which case I can sort on my own provided the unit number is a field in the report.

                                      I have a couple suggestions regarding reports.
                                      1. Reports that can be scheduled: Imagine if I could schedule a daily report, or weekly, or monthly report that would automatically run and email me the results.
                                      2. Reports with relative date ranges: last day, week, month, year.
                                      3. Alerts: Thresholds for delinquent tenants (individually or collectively) would result in an email or text alert.

                                        When choosing date ranges, I would like to be able to run a report for 'TODAY'. This is a very common date range for me and I'd sure like to be able to just click on 'Today' rather than having to enter dates manually. Thanks!

                                        • reimbursable's to property owners accounts

                                          when entering a reimbursement paid by the owner - let's say for a repair you did- when you enter it into the property account it goes in as a credit, (which it should) but when you do the end of the year statement for the owner it shows up as income to them - which it is not, and there is no way to alter the report to show it was money paid by the owner and if you back into the account and alter it, it throws off all of the figures which in turn messes up their tax…
