I Have a Renter that rented from me house A and now he wants to rent house B, how do you enter that?

Can the same person rent two houses from you in quicken? Or do I have to setup two different renters?

    I don't use the Rental property feature ... but I'm not aware of any reason why 1 person couldn't rent 2 properties. SO
    • Take a backup (just in case)
    • Try setting up the renter in House B and see what happens.
    The worst case scenario is that you'd have to restore from that backup.

    You can’t. Is a very poor design. I have been using quicken since 1993… 

    Renter 1 cannot rent two house…. Even worse renter 1 cannot rent house A this year and then rent house B the next year….

    and because name are unique you have to create a new renter and duplicate the info and put a 2 on the name to do that. 

    The must frustrating thing is that You get to pay extra (over $100) for the rental edition, and that feature is was not thoroughly thought…

    What is the EXACT error message that you're getting?  A picture would be helpful
    And, HBR is currently about $23 more than the Premier version (see "Buy Quicken", above), so where did you get your $100 figure?

    There is no error. You just can do it. Not sure what picture will help you.
    Just try to have one person rent 2 different houses?

    where do you put the start and end date of each individual lease? You can’t! Where do you put the deposit? You cant! 

    Here is the current price;

    Btw: id did not meant you pay en extra $100…. I just meant to say you pay extra money, for a feature that is not fully developed.

    Simplifi is a web only product.  HBR is a desktop only product.  Comparing them is oxymoronic.
    And, even your graphic only shows a $15.60 difference. So again, where did you come up with $100 which you stated in your message of 5:15am
    And, as previously stated I don't use the rental module ... so EXACTLY what happens.  HOW does Q refuse this action.
    And, why can you not simply use the renters middle initial for House B?

    Yes. You can have Johny Smith 1 and Johny Smith 2.
    is a bad implementaron for a software that cost over $100 per year. 

    I am sure you fell differently.

    btw: I took a screenshot, not sure why you conclude I was compering simplifi with Quicken H&B. [Removed - Disruptive]
