Change Status of Building


Brenda Hodges | email Mar 1 2018, 05:48 AM
I entered one building as three separate buildings instead of one building with three separate units. How do I change the status of the building and enter the three as units as opposed to buildings? I had already assigned tenants to the buildings. However, I have gone back and assigned the tenants to potential status in order to have no tenant showing up in the building, but it still says I have an entry connected to that in another location and won't let me delete. How can I remedy my problem?

Hi Brenda,

Firstly please note that once a building is created you cannot change it's type, that is you cannot merge three single unit buildings to a multi unit building with 3 units, this needs to be done manually.

As for the message about deleting this is because those buildings are still assigned to other data and you need to un-assign them to be able to delete the old buildings.

In essence LandlordMax has a safety mechanism in it where it will not allow you to delete data that is currently associated with other data because if you did so it would put your database in an unstable state. So for example, let's say one of the buildings you're trying to delete is associated with at least one accounting entry, you cannot delete that building until you delete the associated accounting entry first, or remove the building from the Accounting Entry, assign another building, etc. Once you've done this, you'll be able to delete the building.

Please note that this also includes any accounting entries, scheduled entries, suggested entries workorders, invoices, receipts, leases, etc. As well, as a safety mechanism, before you can delete a building you also need to remove its association to any tenants. To do this, go to the Tenant data entry screen and select the "empty" values for the building/unit.

To facilitate this effort, we generally recommend you first go through the tabbed panels within the building you're trying to delete. From here you can delete the accounting entries, invoices, etc. Afterwards all you need to do is delete the scheduled and suggested entries (as well as unassociated any tenants if you haven't already done so).
