  1. Track Rent Increases

    This software does not allow you to track when the last time you increased units rent and by how much. This is critical for a PM business. Please add this feature! Thanks!

  4. Expense splitting

    Divide expense evenly between all properties button.
    I have a office expense every month that I would like to divide evenly between every property. Its a different amount every month due to utilities cost. As of right now I have to charge it out individually for every property every month. (71 properties)
    Any option to divide expense evenly among properties would be awesome.

  5. Automatic Forte Deposit reconciliation

    If you use Forte, when Forte deposits amounts, the system should automatically notate which deposits were made and put them into deposited funds. The deposited funds should clearly notate the date deposited and how deposited (via forte). Forte has all this data so pulling it in should not be an issue. Then there should be some sort of reconciliation process to allow users to do a manual reconcile to bank statements (quickbooks does a nice job of reconciliation)

  9. Recording Security Deposits received

    We need a "transfer" option added to the tenant screen so that we can transfer security deposits to another bank account. Currently, it only gives us the option to add an "expense" to the tenant ledger. The only other option is to do the security deposit transaction in the checkbook ledger, completely separate from the tenant ledger, using only the "On Deposit" tab to keep track of it.

  11. Email

    When sending an email I should be able to go to the mailbox and select from a list of owners or tenants to send an email to. Currently I have to go to tenants, click send email and send individually or send to entire group. This process is not efficient at all.

  16. Automatically email owners when their owner disbursements are processed.

    I get calls and emails from owners every month asking when their money will be sent to them. I would like an email to be sent to them automatically (or just at the click of a button) when I process their disbursements.

  17. The Ability To Put A Tenant On Notice To Move Out

    I know that you can go to move out and set a tenant to move out at a later date, the problem that I keep having is a tenant doesn't move out when they say they will. Then I have them moved out and I have to either reenter them or know that they are there. Also with any management software I have used in the past there was a report for tenants on notice to move out. It was always part of the vacancy report.

  19. Automatically email monthly Rentec Receipt

    Send your invoice/bill/receipt to the customer. Don't make the customer come to Rentec for it.

    On a monthly basis I have to log into Rentec and retrieve a receipt for the charge to my credit card.

    Auto receipt by email each time it is generated.

    Thanks
