Please make sure the schedule is set correctly before you sign the tenancy.
To check or amend the schedule you need to Click onto LETTINGS then TENANCY, or you can search for the tenancy in the search bar at the top
- Click onto RENT SCHEDULE on the left hand ladder.
Your schedule will normally look similar to this to begin with, with the advertised rent you have listed showing - in this example, it is set to 0.00 and we will look to how you can adjust this accordingly.
Please click "set up rent schedule" in the top right to set your schedule
Now delete the existing entries as shown below - then click "add" so you can begin rebuilding it with the correct values.
- You need to advise the schedule that rent will be accounted for from the start date until the end date which is why you must leave the ‘to’ field blank and for the start date, and enter the date for the end of that rental period
If you wish to show different legs of the tenancy having different amounts, you can set multiple lines into the schedule. To do this, don't leave the "apply until" field blank - simply add the date you want to cease that rental amount period for, then click add again to apply the next leg of the schedule.
Scenario for rent changes:
£500 per month from the start of tenancy
£550 per month as of 13/12/18
You leave the start date clear so it knows it goes from the start of tenancy > apply until 12/12/18 > monthly > £500 > Add
After you click "add" it will look like this > click add to add the next stage:
Now we need to apply the start date to show as of what date we want the rent increase to happen - in the case of this example it is 13/12/18, and we leave the end date blank so that it continues this way throughout the tenancy. Of course, if we didn't want it to carry through for the whole tenancy then we could add another leg of the schedule.
When ready, click "add" as circled below
Then check the overview - when you are happy, click "setup rent schedule" in the bottom right to save the schedule.
