Adding properties and units

When adding a property in Arthur, you are creating the asset which contains your rent-able unit.

You will either be adding a:

  1. Property containing one single unit e.g House, single flat in a block
  2. Property containing  multiple units. e.g HMO, Block of flats


Adding a property containing a single unit

Step 1

Create the property on the screen

Under property type choose what best suits your situation. Here are some examples

  • If your renting a whole flat the property is Residential and the unit is a flat
    If your renting rooms the property is HMO or Residential depending on if a licence is required and the unit is a rooms
    If you renting a house the property is Residential or Land (I prefer Land) and the unit is a house


Step 2

Create the rent-able unit

  • Please name the unit e.g House, Flat 1, Parking space 1 etc
  • choose unit types

Step 3

Add certicates that are required for the unit


What if I also manage the property as well as the unit within

Go to the property>edit>tick ‘I manage this Property’ and the  management function will appear in the right hand menu

property management


Adding a property containing multiple units

Step 1

Create the property on the screen. Under property type choose what best suits your situation. Here are some examples

  • Flat = Where your rent-able unit units are rooms
  • Residential = Where your rent-able units are flats
  • Required certificates


Step 2

If you do not manage the property un-tick the box shown. Also define the number of units you want to list on Arthur




Step 3

On the next page you can add details to the units being rented

  • Name of units e.g Flat, Room, shop etc
  • Choose unit type
  • Required certificates
  • etc

Tip: Use the top to make quick changes down the whole column. When renaming change the “unit” to e.g. Flat, Room. keep the brackets e.g {01} or {a} and ff {01} is used, the units will be shown in numerical order e.g 1,2,3,4,5 and if {a} is used, units will be shown in alphabetical order e.g a,b,c,d,e. this will be subject to the number of units you have.  Once you are happy with the changes click on “apply all” and it will update your columns.
