Overview

While you can have your tenants upload proof of insurance through the tenant portal on their own, you can also enter insurance policy information for your tenants if you'd like.

The Steps

Step 1

From the main menu, select Leasing < Active Leases.

Step 2

Find the lease you want to enter renters insurance for, and click on it. You can either sort the list by the various columns and filters or use the Search leases search bar.

Step 3

From the Overview tab, find the Insurance tile and click on the Add Policy link.

Note that depending on how your insurance requirement settings are set, this tile will either be labeled Insurance Required or Insurance Not Required.

Step 4

Enter in the relevant information:

  • Policy Owner: The tenant for this lease is automatically selected here. If you have more than one tenant on the lease, you can select a different tenant.

  • Provider Name: Enter the name of the insurance company.

  • Policy Number: Enter the insurance policy number.

  • Effective Date: Enter the start date for the insurance policy.

  • Expiration Date: Enter the end date for the insurance policy.

  • Liability Coverage: Enter the amount of coverage.

Step 5

Add any relevant files (optional) and click Save to finish adding an Insurance Policy for this lease.

The insurance policy tile on the lease Overview tab will now show Provided. If you click on the Provided link, this takes you to the Insurance Details Report for this lease.

You can also go to Reports and find the Leasing section to view insurance reports.
