By the end, you'll understand how to add, edit, archive, and restore 'Types' that relate to various aspects of your property management activities, including tenancy, area, maintenance, insurance, and property.

Understanding Different 'Types'

Each Type category serves a unique purpose within the property management workflow:

  • Lease/Tenancy Types: Identify various tenancy arrangements and simplify report filtering.
  • Lease/Tenancy Form Types: Specify form types relevant to leasing procedures and documentation.
  • Review Types: Establish parameters for rent review processes, including any percentage-based evaluations.
  • Area Types: Distinguish between the different areas within properties for better space management.
  • Maintenance & Inspection Types: Classify maintenance and inspection tasks to streamline operations.
  • Rent Types: Set up distinctive rent conditions to use with Rent Templates, including predefined income account allocations.
  • Insurance Types: Sort insurance policies by their respective categories for easier management.
  • Property Types: Group properties into appropriate classes when adding new listings to your portfolio.
  • Zoning Types: Differentiate between various zoning designations on property title records.

For many Types, you can introduce new options directly from dropdown menus when managing specific records (e.g., Leases/Tenancies), or from the Settings menu for broader oversight.

Efficiently managing Types within Re-Leased is essential for maintaining an organized portfolio and ensuring precise record-keeping. This ultimately helps facilitate better analytical insights and promotes smoother operational workflows.
