To improve visibility of rent applied and collected, and in particular to help to highlight and trace rent arrears, we have introduced colour coding on rent lists, statements and schedules.
Tenant and benefit coloured labels
On tenancy and tenant statements, as well as on the list rent screen, various rent charges and receipts have now been colour-coded to make the distinction between the two rent types more visible.
Rent schedule filters
Rent schedules have now been colour-coded also, and only active rent schedules are shown by default. However, the status filter can be easily modified to show all or inactive schedules also.
Rent schedules have now been assigned a unique sequence id on the tenancy's List Rent page, ordered by the dates on which the rent schedules took effect. These have been numbered starting from 1, but remember that inactive schedules may be hidden by default so older schedules may need the status filter set to All.
Balance breakdowns on statements
Additionally, on tenant and tenancy statements the closing balance has been extended to show a breakdown of how much of the overall balance due is ultimately due from the tenant and how much is expected to be paid from benefit. This will assist when chasing tenants for outstanding rent balances.
