Why do balances for current Tenants reset to $0 each month?

FrontLobby has automations in place to provide efficiencies for Landlords and make it easy to reward great Tenants.

The Lease Records for current Tenants automatically start each month with $0 total balance. This automated feature provides efficiencies for Landlords; if a Tenant pays rent on time, then nothing needs to be updated. If a Tenant owes money, simply login and update the total balance for the Tenant each month. 

For former Tenants on the Collect feature, the debt is entered once under Balance and remains until it is updated by the Landlord.
