Let's say a tenant has moved out leaving a $400 balance of bad debt on their tenant ledger. The property manager feels that they will never see payment for the $400 balance. They are not sure how to account for a tenant’s bad debt in AppFolio. What do they do?
When we consider a tenant’s bad debt, the first thing you’ll want to consider is your company’s policy surrounding the standard operating procedure for such a situation. How does your company typically handle a tenant’s bad debt?
When this type of situation occurs, is it written off to bad debt? Or is the balance left on the account so that it will continue to report to the credit bureau? If the policy for a tenant’s bad debt is to be written off as bad debt by classifying to a bad debt account, does the company have the appropriate GL account in place?
Does your company report bad debt to a collection agency? Hunter Warfield is fully integrated with AppFolio, which makes collections easy.
