The system comes with a set of pre-configured commonly-used tenant charges:
- Late Rental Payment
- Tenant Reference
To add your own categories or types of tenant charges, go to Accounting Settings > Modules > Lettings > Rent & Config > Tenant Charges.
Click Add Charge to add your own charge type. When adding a charge type, set the type (fee or expense) and give it a label which will be shown in menus. The new charge types will be added to the charge type menus when adding a tenant charge.
For example, you may wish to add a new charge type for Late Rental Payments, and perhaps a new expense type for Property Damage.
The system charge types cannot be modified or deleted, but your own user-defined charges can be, provided that no charges of this type have been created. Once charges of this type exist, the charge category cannot be removed.
