Add "Meter Reads" tab for properties as well as tenancy for HMO use!

Jack Myles 2 years ago updated by Landlord Vision Admin 2 years ago 8

Under "Tenancies" you can select a tenancy at a selected property and add the relevant electric or gas meter read associated with the tenant at that particular property.


Why is there not a similar section in the "Properties" which would not only be useful for whole property rentals or in a HMO where there is one gas meter and one electric meter for multiple tenancies. As the feature is already in the system I am confident this should be a very easy & simple patch/addition.


Thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for your request. Here's what we can do:

1. Keep the option to enter meter readings at tenancy level. However, any meter readings added at tenancy level will automatically appear at property level as well, i.e. we'll add a Meter Readings tab for each property in Property Manager.

2. Add an option to enter meter readings at property level, i.e. from the Meter Readings tab against each property. When entering a meter reading at property level there will be also an option to assign the reading to one or several rooms if necessary and also an option to assign the reading to one or multiple tenancies. Any readings which have been assigned to a tenancy will automatically appear at tenancy level, i.e. under the Meter Readings tab in Tenant Manager.

Please let us know if the proposed solution will work for you and if you'd like to have anything else added or changed.

Kind Regards,

Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your response, for us option 2 seems like the perfect solution as we do not record any meter readings against specific tenancies throughout our entire portfolio, I currently use a third party cloud note software whereas it makes sense to keep absolutely everything together in one app/program.

Will there be a historical record and will this be accessible to view & edit via the mobile app? 

Thanks for your help,

Jack

Hello Jack,

Thank you for your feedback. You'll be able to add as many meter readings for the same utility/property as necessary which will serve as a historical record. And yes, we'll also update the mobile app to allow viewing and editing of the meter readings at property level.

We'll confirm when these changes have been applied - that would be next month at the latest.

Kind Regards,

Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks again for the speedy reply, that solution is perfect for me and helps bring everything together that little bit more.

Is there any chance my other topic can be looked at as this is even more important to me! https://landlordvision.userecho.com/communities/1/topics/262-ability-to-add-photos-into-tasks-from-phone-app 

Many thanks,

Hi there,

I too would like to see a meter readings tab at the property level. Is there an ETA for this as it looks like it should be there by now?

Hello Tam

I don't have an exact date, but we are focussing on the Property Manager, so it wont be long now

Kind regards

Hello

I am pleased to announce that we have now completed the new Meter Readings section and these have been put live.  You can find it in Property Manager > Properties > open the property > Meter Readings tab

Kind regards
