As a landlord or property manager, you may offer concessions to attract renters or prorated rent to accommodate for special cases.
Prorated Rent is a one-time discounted rent payment. This can only be applied if the lease start date is on a day after the day that the regularly rent is due. You will be asked to enter the rent amount that is due and the due date for that prorated fee. If no values are entered, the tenant will be charged the full rental fee.
Concession is discount given to the tenant for a specified period of time, starting from the lease start date. The Concession Amount is the dollar value that will be subtracted from the tenant’s expected rent payment. The number of occurrences is the number of times the concession will apply, which is based on the rental payment frequency (e.g. weekly, monthly, etc).
The ManageCasa lease app allows you to include these special terms in a simple format, as outlined below.
