and install RC Gen
RC Gen and enter your data
completed Rent Certificates
the completed forms for your tenants as necessary (note that before you can print
the completed RCs, you must acquire a RC Gen license –
instructions for acquiring a license can be found when you start the
RC Gen software)
The following instructions provide an overview of the steps involved in
using RC Gen.
Use of the RC Gen software can be greatly simplified if
you take the time to gather and organize your data beforehand.
The information that is placed on a Rent Certificate can be
divided into three types:
- Landlord information
a. Landlord Info
This data identifies the landlord for the property. If
you manage multiple properties, it is usually the same for all of your
properties. This information
See the section titled
"Renter Information Fields" later on this page for additional
information on required renter data.
While experience has shown that gathering renter/tenant data
can take a significant amount of your time, RC Gen has the ability to import renter data via a
specially-formatted text file.
Once you have gathered your data, you can start using RC Gen to
generate the completed Rent Certificates.

RC Gen Tips
After you generate your RCs but before your print them, click the
button to scan the forms for common errors.
If you manage multiple properties, it's easiest if you save the data for each property
in a separate RC Gen data file. Be sure to give
the file a name that identifies the property like “Property ABC”.
3. If you need to generate
RCs for several tenants, use a program
like Microsoft Excel to create a text file with all of the required data
for your renters. Refer to Importing
Data for more information.
If you only need to generate a handful of RCs, you can generate
“blank” RCs that are pre-filled with any Landlord and/or
Property info that you specified on the main RC Gen instructions page.
You can change any RC that you generate by clicking on the
appropriate RC in the list in the left-hand window, then clicking the
field or fields that require changing.
If you are starting a new session and have successfully licensed
the software, you can use the "Same as Licensee" checkbox to
pre-fill the Landlord information fields with the
identifying information that you provided when you acquired your license.
Click the button in
RC Gen for additional tips and
helpful “how-to” information.
If you have a large number of Rent Certificates that you need
to generate and you don't want to type the information into RC Gen,
you can create and import a text file with the necessary renter
