    Hi Sarah,

    I don't think you understand my question. I know how to enter tenants and how to record payments from them. I can even get a rent paid list. What I don't get is a list of tenants who has not paid yet and the total unpaid amount. Just like an account receivable report.

    Record all rent owed on the 1st of the month as going to an "Accounts Receivable" account from the rental accounts.  Make sure that the tenant name, or some form of proper identifier, is in the payee  field.
    Then, when you actually receive the payment, and deposit it into the bank, show that deposit as coming FROM that A/R account.
    On the day after any grace period for rent, go thru the A/R account and mark the "pairs" of transactions as "Reconciled".

    Any unreconciled transactions in that A/R account are unpaid ... and you can run a simple  Account Register report, filtering out all transactions that are Reconciled.

    That is too complicated. Actually I can see the Tenants that has not paid, under "Bill and Income Reminders". All I have to do is sort the list by date. All Tenants that owes me money are listed on the top in RED. If I can get a printout of that with the total, my issue is solved. Right now I have to add up those manually.

    If that is the direction you want to go, Tools / Manage Bill ... Reminders (Ctrl-J) will pop up a dedicated window with a print option atop.  Using the print option, you can also choose the Export option to get the data into a spreadsheet or similar.

    Hi Sarah,

    From C. D. Bales:


    You have not provided your Quicken version-year and release.


    However, to my knowledge, no version of Quicken has an "unpaid rent report", per se.


    "What I don't get is a list of tenants who has not paid yet and the total unpaid amount.


    The Rent Center displays all properties and tenants, and clearly indicates which tenants have paid for the rent-period in question and which have not.


    Sadly, while you can print that screen, the resulting report loses some of the important subtleties present on the screen. So, for example, when unpaid rent is displayed in the period column very faintly (distinguishing it from paid rent amounts); that distinction is lost in the report, making the unpaid rent look just like paid rent. Also the tiny indicator icons are lost in the report; one of which indicates overdue rent.


    To deal with the amount of unpaid rent: I think you could create a budget for the rent income and display a Budget report for the categories in that rent-income budget - allowing the budget report to do the unpaid rent math for you.


    "Just like an account receivable report."


    You should be able to get an Accounts Receivable report for your tenants, if you create invoices for their rent payments, and apply their payments to their invoices. You need not actually send the invoices. You can use Reminders for the invoices as well as the payments.

    I finally found the report I was looking for. It is hidden in "Rental Property"/"Profit/Loss". Under "Total Income" there are 2 sections. "Upcoming Income" is the report I was looking for. Unfortunately, I can only view it, not able to print.
