    Looking for a simple, streamlined property management software

    Currently we're using Sage Decorus landlord manager, which isn't appropriate for property management at all. I've used CFP in the past, and that's a laggy ***** of inconvenience. So is Sage.

    Is there any software that deals with just property management, and doesn't try to suck your soul out and burn your desktop to the ground with lag?

    I just need a software that allows me to log information over phone calls, create work orders, create sample emails and have them sent out. Preferably one which works with Sage as our accountants use this software, but we property managers/maintainers are doing the posting for them.

    there are many software (now cloud based solutions) but they have a monthly fee, and really depends on the volume of properties. If you use google you will find over 30 software solutions for the number of managed properties you have which the good ones will also allow a demo version so you test if it meets your requirements.

    • Calculating/Limiting My Risk

      My former home is up for rent. Current tenants are leaving in a couple of weeks. I have a set of prospective tenants who really want the house. On my pre-screening questionnaire, I asked the question 'do you have a good credit history'. The answer came back as No, followed by an...

      Because no one knows which two months will be rent free until notice is served.

      The landlord is holding money that will discharge a liability of the tenant at some indeterminate point in the future.
      Which is a deposit.

      Until the rent that will be paid is due, the money...

    • damage, garden maintenance and cleaning dispute
      Hi All

      The tenants that left the property last week after 2.5 years and an initial 12 month let.

      The garden has a tall hedge, it is not a boundary hedge as there is a fence on the boundary and all the hedge trees are on our land but the foliage reaches over the fence.

      My guess is that this was previously the landlord's home (or possibly a family member's) and LL broke the rule "don't leave anything in the property that you are not willing to lose"

      But if rent is to be paid 3 months in advance, then it is known for which month(s) any payment is made. They can then not pay the last w=two months after giving notice because they have already paid it....

      This is not my only rent paying property.

      I think it's best to look into the insurance scheme - it just suits me that they only want to rent for 1 to 2 years....

    • BTL accepting lease agreement
      Hi All.

      Dipping in for some advice please.

      I have a property with current BTL of 75%. No adverse credit etc..
      Struggling to find a lender who will accept my current tenant going forward as it's leased to a care home operator.
      One lender had agreed to the tenant,...

      Thanks for the reply.
      I've gone through quite a few brookers and nothing is being placed on the table.

      So basically I've been looking in the wrong pool of lenders?
      I did approach a commercial lender but they were talking of fees of 5k + product fees....on a 120k loan I found...

    • section 21 and how to rent guide
      Hi do you have to serve an up to date how to rent guide when a tenancy moves to a periodic tenancy from a standard 6 months tenancy or is the original how to rent guide sufficient in order to serve a valid section 21 notice...

      It doesn't really have to be before the replacement tenancy starts, it just has to be before any section 21, but yes about new guide.

      It's a new tenancy, so the requirements to provide a guide applies again, and because there's a new version, you don't get the exemption to not provide it...
