Getting Started with Rentvine: Suggested Monthly Workflow

This document will walk you through the most common workflow process for a property manager

Step One - Post Management Fees

In Rentvine you have the ability to create multiple management fee settings.  Once you create a setting you can then assign it to a property.

  • AUTO: If your management fee setting is set to Percent of Rent Payments then these management fees will post automatically once the tenant payment is made.
  • MANUAL: If your management fee settings fall within the following: Recurring Flat Amount, Recurring Percent of Market Rent, Recurring Percent of Actual Rent, or Minimum Amount then you will need to manually post your management fees.
