RentMaster version 9.5 has been released

Posted on July 12, 2010

Version 9.5 has arrived

You can download this update by going to the help menu inside RentMaster and choose Download RentMaster Update.  If you have any problems downloading the update automatically, you can also download it manually from

Main Highlights

The main change in this release is the automatic addition of letters generated by the mail merge facility into the tenants Attachments tab.  This makes finding previously created letters a lot easier.  The date of the letter is also displayed on the screen.  Existing mail merge letters generated prior to updating are automatically included.

What else is new?

  • The Bond/deposit held report now has the Include Closed Tenants checkbox enabled.  Closed tenants with a zero balance will not be shown.
  • The bond/deposit held report now shows the bond amount required if the Detailed Report option is turned on.
  • When generating automatic income and expense transactions, the transaction code is now shown as a separate column.
  • The contractors fax number has been added to the contractors work order print.
  • Automatic income and expense transactions were automatically changing their bank account to the properties default bank account each time the automatic transaction was edited.  This has been fixed.

Coming in v9.5 - Easier mail merge letter retrieval

Posted on July 4, 2010

When a letter is generated using the mail merge facility, the letters are available for retrieval from the lower left hand corner of the mail merge screen.

In version 9.5, the same letters are also now available for viewing from the Attachments tab of the tenant details screen.  This makes viewing old letters a lot easier, and more obvious.

Coming in v9.5 - Bank accounts and automatic transactions

Posted on July 4, 2010

An issue has been found with automatic expenses and automatic income transactions.  If the default bank account is changed, and then the automatic transaction is edited and saved again, the bank account was changing back to the default bank account for the selected property.  This has been fixed so a bank account override will stay in place.
