    Still wondering what Quicken Rental Property Manager is all about?
    Hi again. Some of you have had questions about how information on your properties is organized in the Quicken Rental Property Manager product. Questions like: Can I track each property separately, or all together? And how might this differ from how Quicken would track my rental properties? Is there a balance sheet for each property?

    We organized the Quicken Rental Property Manager product around the way you think: by Property. Each property has a separate set of transactions – so it’s easy to see exactly what’s going on with each of your properties. You can see this on the main screen (i.e., the Ledger) and you can run income and expense reports to see the details, again by Property. So, it’s very easy to keep things separated by property.

    The Quicken Personal Finance Software, on the other hand, is organized by Account. You can easily see your running balance in a particular checking account that would have all of your transactions, both personal and those that apply to your rental properties.

    In talking with rental property owners, we found that most use several different financial accounts for a property (checking, credit card) – and often use more than one checking account for the property (i.e., usually when you have to pull from your personal checking account to cover things going on with your rental property). So we do not ‘tie’ a particular financial account with each of your properties.

    There is currently no capability to generate a balance sheet per property. Please continue to provide your feedback on the product (including enhancements you’d like to see) … we’re planning to build what you ask for! You can submit feedback from within the product, on our Support site, or discuss your ideas with other rental property owners on our forum.

    To better understand how your rental property data is organized in the product – I recommend watching a quick demo of the product (see Demo section on the right hand side of page).

    Until next time …

      Next time my tenants give notice I'll try to kick them out three weeks early instead. Makes sense.
      Someone pays for all these jokers....

      Hi All, I have been living in the same house for 7 years and have just been served a form 6A giving 4 months notice to vacate. The owner is returning from overseas and wants to live in the house. Whilst disappointed I get that this is one of the perils of renting but it has raised a few questions. ...

      Do you not have a managing agent?

      I'm going to keep this short as its a long story. I have a tenant who signed the new tenancy contract on 15th June and then on 27th June I received about 20-25 messages and pictures the evening saying the flat was unliveable due to pests and that he had only moved in the night before. I went round to...

      Yes, they have a demo account where you can play with £75,000 ($100,000)

      I did put $10k into one copy on April 4th and its now on a profit of $4,915, so nearly 50% in just under 4 months.

      I guess as Im only playing, I should "invest" all the funds and see how they...

      I will post here but it may get moved - but at least it gets a bit of exposure to begin with lol

      I've used a platform called etoro for 2 or 3 years to hold shares in some cruise stocks (don't laugh) - mainly because we do 4 or 5 cruises a year and the shareholder benefits can be quite handy....

      Has he paid the rent on June 15th and then again on July 15th?

      Sounds obvious but have you double checked you have done all the correct paperwork and deposit registration/certificate - triple check it !!

      Personally, going forward I would not liaise with the tenant in any way...

      by Hudson01
      Even if you were my opinion would stay the same, i think that given it is a converted house the noise isolation and other issues are not the same as separate purpose built flats, so having one as a rental will have far more of an impact upon the other owners who live there. It really is a one way street...

      Not sure if this is the best section to post in, so please move if it is considered best place elsewhere.

      I have had ownership of a flat, one of just four in a converted house, for many years. There is a simple flat management structure; the four owners are directors and have one share...

      This is not my understanding - perhaps others can clarify. I thought you had to give your usual notice if you were leaving before the end of the LLs notice period....
