Hiya's, The last few tips have all been about the rules, which makes most people a little bit sleepy How many of you have access to owner portals? How many of you use them? They vary a lot in availability and appearance depending on which software your Property Manager is using. They can save both yourself and your property manager a lot of time, since all the information you need is at your finger tips 24 hours a day any where in the world. For privacy purposes, these screenshots are from a demo agency and feature a fictional property. These screenshots are all from the landlord's (not property manager's) perspective. So this is what you (as the owner or landlord) would see. The first step is you get a link in your email , which you click on. Then it shows you your portfolio of properties, in this case the fictional person only owns 1 property (more would show in a list if you owned more properties). You click on the property you want to look at: Once you do that (I'll post this in separate bits since it wouldn't all fit in this post), you go into that property and you can see it's address and it's current balance. It also shows the money in and out for the month. It has tenant details, ie their name, amount, the date when they're paid up to and that of their next renewal. Scrolling down from there you can see the last 12 months financial performance of the property, jobs (which is the current status of any maintenance / repair work that has a current work flow status in the system) and all the recent inspections reports which you can open up as PDF (this particular property only has 1 in the system). The last part shows the documents associated with the property. In this property's case, that is just the monthly statements which you can open up by clicking on. This section would also show any documents the property manager has scanned, such as bills they'd paid on your behalf. So what do you all think?
