  2. Tenant report showing total rent paid for past yeaar

    I would like the ability to to run an end of year report for each tenant showing amounts they have paid for rent. I have many tenants that need this for a tax credit. Currently I can run a statement but it doesn't show the total amount of received for rent. Also this report ideally would show how much received from Government assistance and tenant totals.

  4. Allow for new default rent category, or for it to b e renamed.

    Change the name of the Rental Income (default). For 2 reasons 1) I don't want the tenant to see it called "Income" because it is an expense to them and subconsciously I don't want them to think this is directly "income" for the owner, some tenants get resentful of the landlords, thinking thy are all greedy. 2) this name is directly tied to a Quickbooks chart of accounts, and this is NOT what it is called there. Particularly because in Quickbooks you can have nested accounts, my income account in Quickbooks is called Resident Charges -> Rent. In Rentech, this…

  5. 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?

  6. Customize Work Orders

    The ability to customize work orders. This would allow us to add fields such as "Material cost: $____" for field agents to fill in if they have to purchase extra things for a repair (Ex: a screen door, paint, etc.). Another example field would be a "Labor Hours:____" field as well as a signature field.

  12. Allow Negative Owner ACH Line Item For Multiple Property Owners

    Owner ACH payment currently cannot be entered as a negative amount for a property. For multiple property owners that wish to have expenses deducted from rent instead of owner contribution, there needs to be a way to enter a negative amount into that property's line item box. Example: owner has two properties, one has a balance of $500, other property has a negative balance of $100. Instead of having to do a manual transfer between properties, you should have the option to put ($100) on the second property in the owner payment wizard. Thank you!

  13. Tie management fee amount to income category

    Allow different management fee for different income categories. Example: Rental Income is 8, 9 or 10%. But Late Fee Income is split 50/50 with the owner. Having this set by category would save time. Thanks!

  14. Allow managers to keep application/convenience fees without manually adjusting or allow us to post the expense for those items to properties

    As managers we are automatically charged the cost of background/credit checks and credit card convenience fees and if we don't manually enter a charge on the property ledger or delete the income we face the risk of paying all of the fee's without getting any of the income or even deducting the cost to generate those fees. I see no reason for this much exposure to human error. Let us choose to keep those fees or to at least charge the cost of generating them back to the property.

  16. Print Owner Account Info on Deposit Slip

    Provide Associated Account name on Deposit Slip - Today when I print a deposit slip it prints my Contact Info in the upper left portion of the deposit rather the account's owner information. I request that when I make a deposit to an account (similar to printing a check), it uses the associated account owner's information on the deposit slip. I make deposits into 20 accounts every month and have to change my contact info before printing a deposit slip. Very time consuming. Thanks, Jeff

    Many vendors have separate addresses for receiving payments. It would be nice to have the option to specify a separate address
