To use our software the first thing you need to do is add a property (and then add a lease).
Adding a property allows you to associate specific income and expenses to specific properties and easily track and organize your finances on a property by property basis.
This article explores how to add and edit your properties on the mobile app and desktop portal.
To Add your First Property
You will be guided through the steps when adding your first property in the app. If however, you choose to skip the guided steps follow the steps below to add your first property.
Step 1. Open the app and create an account to log in.
Step 2. You will see a screen asking you to add a property. Click on the add property button in the middle.
Step 3. Type in your address.
We have integrated with Google Maps so as you start typing our system will autofill suggestions for you. Select your property address – alternatively, enter the address manually.
Step 5. This will take you to the next screen and autofill it for you.
Step 6. Scroll down and you will see there are other details you can add to your property if you desire.
Important Note: If your property has multiple units in it, then you need to switch on the toggle to allow HMO / Multi-unit properties.
Step 7. Hit save.
For HMO/MultiUnit Properties
Step 8. For a multiunit property, you will now need to add all the units in the building naming them as you go.
Add More Properties
You can add another property to your account via the home screen dashboard.
To do this scroll to the bottom of your home dashboard and you’ll see an option to “Add New Property”. Tap on this and follow the steps above.
Alternatively, on iOS devices, you can use the quick action button.
Editing a Property
You can edit a property or delete it at any time.
To do this first navigate to the relevant property via the hamburger menu bar.
To edit the property tap on the blue pencil icon.
On this screen, you can change or edit the property address, mortgage details, property valuation, property details, and notes.
If you scroll right to the bottom of the page there are two more options to either “Archive Property” or “Delete Property”.
This option moves this property into your archive which takes it out of the untenanted section but allows you to keep all your property data. And it will still count as part of your subscription.
This deletes all your property data off of the software. This is not reversible.
