If you have a lease with multiple tenants and one moves out, you will want to remove the tenant from the lease without ending the lease for the remaining tenants. In DoorLoop, moving a tenant out of a lease and keeping all the relevant information related to the move-out is easy.

Note that these instructions are not how you should end a lease when a previous lease ends and someone else rents the unit. To do that, you should end the current lease and then create a new lease for the new tenant and their lease terms.

The Steps

  1. From the main menu, click Leases and then click Active Leases.

  2. Find the lease you want to remove a tenant from and click on it. You can either sort the list by the various columns and filters or use the Search leases search bar.

  3. Click on the Tenants tab and click the Move-out Tenant button.

  4. Click the + Add Tenant button to select which tenant to remove. You can add as many tenants as needed to move them all out.

  5. Enter the Notice date to record when the tenant gave you their move-out notice. Use the Move-out date to enter when the tenant actually left the property.

  6. Add any relevant files (optional) and click Save to finish moving out the tenant.

Congratulations on moving out a tenant for an existing lease! You can also move-in tenants on an active lease if new tenants are joining the lease.
