The RENTCafé Vacancy Management Process Guide provides instructions for housing providers that are administering an RGI vacancy through RENTCafé. The guide provides direction and step-by-step processes on how to introduce, improve or refresh knowledge of RGI vacancy management.
The RGI Administration Manual references a number of forms and templates. Housing providers are required to use all forms and templates labeled “mandatory”. In some cases, the forms and templates must be adapted to include the housing provider’s logo and contact information. Any forms and templates which are not mandatory are strongly recommended.
