New Lease renewals process: 

We've been working hard on restructuring how lease renewals in Buildium work, thanks to customer feedback. We’re excited to announce that these improvements are now available to all customers!

  • Now when you choose to renew an existing lease, the system will no longer create a completely new lease ledger. Instead, when you process a renewal the same lease will be extended. Renew existing leases without juggling multiple lease ledgers or transfers!
  • New Move-in dates will allow you to accurately record who is living in the unit outside of the lease start date and track move-in dates and move out dates in the event history report.
  • More renewals improvements will be coming early 2020!

It’s almost that time of year again! As always, Buildium is here to help you e-File your 1099s efficiently and on time. Some things to keep in mind ahead of filing:

  • Early access is available all December! If you are e-Filing 1099s through Buildium, you can get a jump on things by creating and saving batches early in December, making filing in January faster than ever. 
  • Digital copies: Filing with Buildium now gets you access to digital copies of recipient forms at no extra cost!

Renters Insurance: 

Record insurance policies on unsigned leases

  • If you have insurance information on hand for a tenant when you are creating the lease in Buildium, you can record this information while creating an unsigned lease on the add lease page so you don't have to go back and edit the lease summary information after the fact.
