When can I expect my owner draw and statement?

Traditionally, owner draws are posted on the 10th of the month. Funds can take 2 business days to clear from our trust account to your checking account. The statement is also published on the 10th and will include all transactions from the 11th of the previous month to the 10th of the current month.

We also offer a second accounting cycle option called Full Month Accounting. If you have selected Full Month Accounting, the owner draw will be posted on or before the last day of the month and the statement will be posted for the full month from the 1st to the last day of the month.

Full month accounting for rental property makes a lot of sense.

  1. This month’s rent income pays this month’s bills. In the past rent collected on the 1st was sent to the owner on the 10th. Any bills that came in after the 10th often could not be paid until the second month’s rent was collected.
  2. The monthly statements are cleaner with all transactions recorded for the full month not from the 11th of the first month to the 10th of the second month.
  3. Resident non-sufficient funds checks do not cause mishandling of trust account funds. If the Resident pays rent late on the 8th and the owner draw is sent on the 10th, if the check from the Resident comes back non-sufficient funds on the 12th the property manager is in violation of the law. The manager has sent money to the owner that doesn’t belong to the owner. By allowing some time to pass between rent collection and the owner draw, funds are given time to clear the bank so that good funds are sent to the owner in the owner draw.

While we are not requiring anyone to switch to end of the month owner draws, we highly recommend it. If you would like to switch, just contact our office and let us know.
