I am a mortgage lender. I want to track loans for which I am the lender.

Quicken 2013 help says to open the account and select account Actions and then "Convert asset to lender loan". That option is not present.

How do I convert an asset to a lender loan (a loan I am financing)?  It was so easy in all prior versions of Quicken.  Not in this one.  Some improvement, eh?

This option was added in Quicken 2013 R6. 

1. First, create an "Other Asset" account where:
- For Asset Value = enter the total amount you loaned
- For Start Date = enter the date of the loan (when you made the loan) 
- When asked if you'd like to associate a Loan with the Asset choose "No"

2. Then, select the asset account you just created.

3. From the register Action menu (Gear at top-right) choose the "Convert to Lending Loan..." option

This will walk you through the rest of the Loan setup process. It will allow you to set the loan terms and enter the Current balance of the Loan (i.e. how much is still owed to you).

If you had lending loans prior to Q2013, they should get converted. The above is the process for setting up new Lending Loans.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
