How to migrate?
- Open Property Buddy
- Tap on Migrate at the bottom left
- Enter your email and password that you would like to use. Note that the migration can only occur one-time into an empty account. If you have previously created a Landlord Studio account, you can contact us to delete it. This will remove all data from Landlord Studio and cannot be undone.
A quick check of your data will happen, and the migration will proceed. Please keep an eye on what the final screen says as it will let you know if the migration fully succeeded.
If you do not see the below screen, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Common warning messages
During the check of your data, we may detect some errors which will prevent the migration. You should use the information to try to correct your data or go to settings -help - send diagnostics to email@example.com for further help.

Logged payment period is before the commencement date
Explanation: A payment has been recorded that has a payment period that is before the lease commencement date. This would only occur if the lease start date has been modified.

Logged payment period is after the commencement date
Explanation: A payment has been recorded that has a payment period that is after the lease end date. This would only occur if the lease end date has been modified.
