You are able to generate less than 14 days rent for a Tenant if you want to align the Tenant’s rent cycle to their Centrepay/WINZ payment date. You also may want to generate less than 14 days rent when vacating a Tenant, or occasionally, you may want to align the rent cycle with a particular day of the week. 

From the Tenancy Record, click the Generate Rent  box in the blue buttons at the top of the record. The Generate Rent pop up will open:

Remove the date in the Calculate Rent To field, and replace it with the date that you want to generate rent to (EG Day before Centrepay/WINZ Payment date, last date of Tenancy, date of the specific day of the week, etc.).

Click <TAB> or <ENTER> on your keyboard, and the Days Rent will update to show the number of days the rent will be generated for EG: 6

Click Generate. Chintaro will calculate what the daily rent amount is, by diving the weekly rent amount by seven, and then multiplying the daily rent amount by the number of days that you want to generate the rent for. A new transaction will appear in the Tenancy Transactions ledger to reflect the amount of rent charged. 

If you are aligning rent charges with WINZ/Centrepay payment dates, the next time you generate rent, the rent cycle will begin on the same day the payment is expected.
