AANC To End Per-Clicks-Ordering of AANC Lease Forms In Favor of Flat-Rate Annual Billing Per Unit With Full Usage of AANC Forms Library;

“Small Owner” Pricing Program Announced for Users with 1-75 Units;

Revised 2016 AANC Lease Forms to be Released October 2016

 

In August 2016, the AANC Board voted to transform the Blue Moon Software (“Blue Moon”) sales of AANC Lease Forms from the current system of “per click” ordering to a flat annual rate of $2.72/unit plus Blue Moon’s current $300.00/site license fee, effective January 1, 2017.   The current click-ordering system will end on September 30, 2016.  Effective October 1, 2016, all current AANC Lease users on the Blue Moon platform will enjoy full access to all AANC Lease forms effective October 1, 2016, around which time they will be invoiced for their AANC Lease subscription by Blue Moon, with an invoice due date of January 31, 2017.  Blue Moon’s “anniversary date” for the $300.00 site licenses will be re-set to a January 1 date each year and will be included on your October 2016 invoice.

As part of this conversion to annual billing, AANC Lease users will enjoy a Lease ordering and delivery system that is both predictable and easy to budget on an annual basis.  AANC Lease users can now enjoy the entire AANC forms library (as well as all current and future AANC Addenda and other forms in development) for the same flat priceCurrent concerns about re-printing costs and running out of “clicks” will become a thing of the past;  if you make an error on an AANC Lease form and need to correct it and print another Lease, you may do so without worrying about “clicks” or any delays in click ordering on nights and weekends.  Once you pay your once-per-year invoice for access, your property ownership/management will be able to access the Lease for the entire year, assuming the property ownership/management maintains its membership in good standing with your local AANC-affiliate apartment association. 

Highlights/Details for This New Lease Program:

BILLING:

  • AANC Lease Blue Moon click orders will end on September 30, 2016.
  • Blue Moon will invoice AANC Lease users in October 2016 for access for the 2017 year at the rate of $2.72/unit plus a $300.00 annual Blue Moon feeAll AANC Lease invoices generated by Blue Moon will be paid to Blue Moon instead of your local affiliate.
  • Monthly Blue Moon license credit in 2017 for new 2016 AANC Lease users:  For sites / users who first began using the AANC Lease forms in 2016, and who paid a $300.00 Blue Moon license fee in 2016, your 2017 renewal site license fee will reflect a credit of $25.00/month from February 1, 2016 through the month the site/user first received access.  For example, if your community began using the AANC Lease in May 2016, you would receive a $100.00 credit [$25.00 x February, March, April, & May] off your 2017 $300.00 Blue Moon license fee.
  • AANC Lease invoices sent by Blue Moon in October 2016 will be due by January 31, 2017, though lease users are welcome to pay Blue Moon anytime between October 2016 and January 31, 2017. 
  • Due to the transition from click orders to annual billing, AANC Lease access will be granted to all Blue Moon AANC Lease users during October 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016, so as to ensure the most recent click order customers receive good value during this three-month transition period to annual billing in 2017.  (For those sites/communities who are nearly out of “clicks,” or if you are a new AANC Lease user/community who signs up for the AANC Lease during the October-December 2016 timeframe, you essentially obtain free AANC Lease access for those three months by paying your 2017 invoice).
  • Accessing Blue Moon and downloading any AANC Lease Forms after September 30, 2016 will be considered your community’s agreement to abide by AANC/Blue Moon’s terms of service and to pay the Blue Moon invoice for 2017 access.  No refunds or “trial use” periods are permitted.

APARTMENT ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENT:

  • Membership with your local AANC affiliate apartment association is always a requirement to be able to use and access the AANC Lease forms via Blue Moon.  Access may be terminated for any AANC Lease user who fails to remain in good standing with their local AANC affiliate.

SMALLER OWNER LEASE PURCHASE OPTION:

  • A “smaller owner” package is available for owners/sites with 75 units or less.  For those smaller owners/users, the annual $300.00 Blue Moon fee is waived (though there are no credits in 2017 for Blue Moon fees paid in 2016 for those who elect the “smaller owner” program) and the price for AANC Lease access will be billed at $5.00/unit annually, with a minimum purchase of 10 units ($50.00).  

RELEASE OF 2016 EDITION OF THE AANC LEASE FORMSIn tandem with the release of these pricing programs will be the release of the new 2016 Revisions to the AANC Lease forms.  Initially, these revised forms will be available to Blue Moon lease users only, with future availability for AANC licensees and paper form users to be announced later in 2016.
