Project Title: Rental Property Management: An Android Application
Semester: 2 2015
Committe Chair: Dr. Ajay Katangur
Committee Member 1: Dr. Dulal Kar
Project Description: A majority of unpleasant issues faced by landlords and tenants seem to grow due to lack of communication. Late rent payments turns into an eviction. A non-functional AC or a broken window becomes a reason to break a lease. Fortunately, building a positive relationship doesn't take much effort and it all starts with one basic idea: communication. Rental Property Management app provides the solution by offering the ability to share issues between tenants and landlords which leads to rapid issue resolution and fewer misunderstanding. The goal of the app is to create a better relationship between tenants and landlord. The Rental Property Management app is designed to support both tenants and landlords by enabling them to document and communicate repair issues, send automatic rent reminders, package notifications and emergency information. It helps the tenant with making Payments and it also helps the Landlord to keep track of issues posted by tenants. Effectively resolving the apartment issues is important to the tenant's longterm future and the Rental Property Management app will be an important tool for creating rental housing stability by helping tenants speak with greater credibility through initiating and documenting communications and building productive relationships with landlords.
