Payments in Flats

For Flat Managers

Your Home Our Home provides an easy and effective way to manage all the payments for a flat.

Payment Principles

  • The Flat Manager can receive 'Money in' from flatmates/roommates.
  • The Flat Manager can make 'Money out' payments to the Landlord, Utilities companies and others.
  • Flatmates/Roommates make 'Money out' payments to the Flat Manager.
  • The Flat Manager can also be a flatmate/roommate, and can therefore make 'Money out' payments as part of this role.
  • The Flat Manager can switch roles between their 'Flat Manager' role and their 'Flatmate/Roommate' role.
  • When the Flat Manager marks a payment as received from a flatmate/roommate it will show in the flatmate/roommates App as being paid.  

Payments and Transactions

There are two main types of payment
  • One-off payments
  • On-going payments

Every payment is based on a single Payment Profile which details the regular amount, what it is for, who is paying it etc.  

Each payment profile will result in multiple 'Transactions'.  Every instance of a payment for a particular 'Payment Profile' is a 'transaction'.
