How do I handle a tenant's lease terms


What are the lease start and lease end dates?

  • Lease start date
    • Is the date when the lease begins
    • Can't be later than the move-in date, move-out date, or lease end date
    • The tenant may move-in once the lease starts, and stay till the lease ends
  • Lease end date
    • Is the date when the lease ends
    • Can't be before the lease start date, move-in date, or move-out date
    • Not required if the Lease term is Month to month
    • If the Lease term is Six month or One year, Quicken calculates the lease end date from the lease start date
    • The tenant can stay in the property until the lease end date

What are the move-in and move-out dates?

  • Move-in date
    • Is the date the tenant actually moves in to the property
    • Can be after the lease start date if the tenant moves in after the lease starts
    • Must be within the lease term selected
  • Move-out date
    • Is the date the tenant actually moves out of the property
    • Can be before the lease end date
    • Must be within the lease term selected
    • Quicken stops the rent collection reminders on the move-out date
  • How should the tenant be moved out
    1. Edit the tenant and set the move-out date.
    2. Quicken ends the rent collection reminders for the related property or unitQuicken displays the rent due amount in the month columns in the Rent Center, through the month in which the move-out date falls.
  • What if I want to extend a tenant's lease?
    1. In the Terms and Agreement tab, modify the lease end date (and the move-out date if required)
    2. In the Rent Details tab, under Rent Collection reminder, select one of the option:
