How do I send a notice to a tenant to sign?
In order to send a notice to be signed by a tenant, you need to create your own notice template. You may easily create your own notice template(s) in the “Document Templates” section from the Settings menu. Once the notice template is created, open "Contacts" from your left side menu and click "Profile" for the required tenant contact:
E-signature is available starting from the Starter subscription plan.
This might be helpful:
On the left side menu of the tenant's profile, select the "Send a Notice" button. Choose an active lease, select the Notice Template you have added previously or create a new one by clicking on “+Create new template option.
There are two possible options to request the signature from the tenant:
- Simply by dragging the Signature/Initials and dropping wherever the document should be signed. You can select who is supposed to sign the specific clause either you as a landlord or the tenant by clicking on the “Assigned to” option:
- Alternatively, you may enable the "Default Signatures" option and the system will automatically add signatures and dates signed and assign them to your tenant and to yourself at the bottom of the current document. It is possible to edit the added table according to your own needs.
Please note the default signature option can be adjusted to each notice template, but only for a text editor.
- Please make sure the Signature Field is assigned to a tenant, only in this case “Send to sign” button will appear
- You can decide which template to use and from whom to require signature or initials
- You may simply re-assign the signature/initials to yourself or the tenant
- If you do not need the signature/initials in a certain place, you may easily delete it by clicking on the delete button on your keyboard or clicking on “remove” on the right menu.
Additionally, you can also upload attachments that are related to this notice, which will be shared along with the notice to the Tenant Portal. You can add up to 10 files:
If the notice is required to be signed, then the notice is shared to the tenant’s TC Messenger with a “signature pending” status. Once the notice is signed, you will see the status “signed” with a “view” link. Clicking on the link will redirect you into a new window where the notice in the pdf file is generated.
If you do not want to require a signature on the notice, then simply do not add the “Signature” field to the template or disable the “Default Signatures” toggle button and click “Send”:
If the notice is not required to be signed, then the notice is just shared with the tenant’s TC Messenger. “View” link clicking on it will be redirected into a new window where the notice in the pdf file is generated.
Options and rules:
- Notices can be sent to connected and not connected tenants but only to those who have an active lease. Connected/ Not connected tenants will receive an email with the notice and files(if applicable);
- If the tenant doesn’t have an active lease, then the “send a notice” button is not shown;
- The tenant’s timeline helps you to keep track of all the sent notices.
