Adding, viewing, reporting and being notified of expiring, expired and missing certificates

A certificate is a special type of document that has an expiry date and where it is important that as a property manager  you are notified. A certificate can be added either at property, unit or tenancy level. “Ensure the certificate is added at the correct level”



* A copy of the document uploaded to a certificate will also add a copy to the documents area of the property, unit or tenancy.

Where to add certificate requirements:

  2. Editing properties and units
