The LUCHA Tenant Portal is an internet site where LUCHA tenants with email addresses can pay rent and request work orders online, and it is active as of September 1, 2015. The portal is part of a new property management software system LUCHA is using called AppFolio.


An Overview of the Tenant Portal

When LUCHA tenants give LUCHA their email addresses, they will receive an email from LUCHA inviting them to set up a tenant portal account.  The invitation will include a link that will take tenants to a page where they will be asked a few simple questions.  They will then be asked to create a password and then be asked to log in.  Setting up the account should take less than 2 minutes!


Note: There are no fees to use the LUCHA tenant portal if you pay your rent using a checking account. A surcharge (which covers administrative processing fees) is only applied if you use a credit or debit card.
