Manage Leases

Including leases in your SiQ account helps you create a richer data set for your real estate portfolio. Leases can be associated with any building or floor already in your SiQ portfolio. In addition, lease costs and schedules are incorporated into SiQ financial reporting, found in Reports, Portfolio, and Costs.

In this article, you'll learn how leases work in SiQ.
