Adding an invoice to a property

Invoices from suppliers can be added as an expense on to a property for payment from the landlords income. The charge could be for any invoice where a works order hasn't been created, such as an electricity bill, or any other expenses incurred by your landlord.  

After an expense is added, it will appear as a debit on the landlords statement, until funds are available for it to be paid. 

If the property is vacant, a landlord statement can be created with the expense items, requesting the landlord send your agency funds for the invoice, so the relevant supplier can be paid.
