Automatic Rent Escalation

Instead of manually updating a lease amount in the system, you can save time by using the  Automatic Rent Escalation feature to do that task for you. You can add in an Automatic Rent Escalation when you: 

  • Place a Tenant into a property. 
  • Update Lease terms in the software. 

Important note: Online rent payment schedules do not update automatically. If you or your tenants set up an online rent payment schedule the dollar amount scheduled will need to manually increased.

More information on online payment scheduling can be found here: Scheduling Online Payments for Tenants
