Want to add rent or create a charge for a tenant who receives government assistance?

Follow the instructions below

  1. On your RentRedi dashboard, click the + next to the Rent tab

  2. Select the charge type (Lease/ Rent or Other)

  3. Select the property address and unit

  4. Select BOOK TO to indicate where/what type of charge is being created and insert a charge description

  5. Click Continue

  6. Enter the rent amount for the full amount of the charge, lease dates, and set the recurrence of the charge (i.e., monthly, bi-monthly, custom, etc)

  7. Click Continue

  8. Preview charges and edit any due dates, delete or duplicate charges if needed

Click Save

Once you receive the supplementary funds, you'll be able to manually enter the amount with the steps below:

  1. Locate the charge paid by Section 8

  2. Click on that charge

  3. In the bottom right section, you'll see Add Payment

  4. From here you can add details about when the funds were received, the amount, and any details for your record

  5. Click Save


Your external payment is recorded and your tenant will be able to make the partial remaining payment.

If they need to make a partial payment before the supplementary income, they can do so with the article, How to Make a Partial Payment.
