If a property is owned by more than one Landlord or they are registered as living overseas, they can be set up as Shared Ownership. This will enable you to:

  • Add joint Landlords who are overseas for HMRC reporting, even if they have an NRL approval number

  • Provide each Landlords account details, if they each have a different bank account
  • Split the income and expenditure by a percentage for each Landlord Payment
  • Add a maximum of ten owners, sharing ownership of one property

  2. Add the second Landlord
    1. Click No to add a new property
  3. Add the third, or next Landlord, if required
  4. Repeat step 2 until all Landlords, who are sharing the ownership of one property, have been added

Share ownership with the property

  1. Double click Properties from the side menu
  2. Search for the relevant Property using Search Text by Name, Code or Status
    1. Alternatively, find the Property using Additional Options from the dropdown menu

      2. Percentage of Ownership - Enter the percentage which the Landlord has ownership
        1. Decimal places can be added in the percentage, if there are an odd number of Landlords. We don't recommend having a Landlord with 0% share
      3. Repeat these steps to continue entering more than two Landlords to this shared ownership
      4. Percentage Assigned - Appears red if 100% is not reached
