September 2013, Payments Applied to Oldest Open Invoice:
Effective September 1, 2013, any payment applied to a tenant account will go towards the oldest open invoice first and move forward to current rent due. If the balance is not paid in full, the result will be the rent is not paid in full and therefore a late fee will be applied to the current open balance.
August 2013, Vendor Repair Bills:
Owners / landlords will pay for vendor repair bills each month. When tenants are at fault, they will reimburse owners through the WPG Owners account.

Tenants can log into their portal to see balances, pay rent and put in trouble tickets. Whether from the computer or smart phone, we have now made it simple to use. Look for a letter in the mail for your username and temporary password.
June 2013, Funds Available for Projects:
Owners must send funds to their accounts prior to work beginning. WPG will not provide the funds to you or the vendor.
November 2012, Landlords Portal Accepting Credit Cards:
Effective immediately, Landlords portal will allow for cash advances or to pay for a repair with credit cards. Our 3rd party partner will allow you to pull from your credit card and will put the funds into your account. The traditional credit card or debit card fees will be in addition to the amount you request.
June 2012, Projects and Repairs:
Any repair greater than $300 and requires an inspection(s), supervision, follow up, or bidding, WPG will add 10% to the price of the invoice. Any larger project where WPG is supervising or running a project is a separate program and fee structure.
May 2012, Collections:
Monies collected from a collection agency will repay any such expenses incurred by WPG first & remaining monies are split as percentages detailed in the management agreement. If WPG collects from former tenants in-house, the industry standard of 30% collection fee comes off the top and the balance is applied to the landlords account
February 2012, Vendor Bill Payments:
Payments to Vendors: Landlords will pay vendor bills for work completed at their property each month. If tenant is at fault, the tenant will reimburse the landlord account through the monthly payment, even if this puts the rent in arrears. Late fees will be assessed for any unpaid rent.
