A residential asset management firm has acquired The Landlord and Letting Show, The Landlord and Letting Awards and The Landlord and Buy to Let magazine.
The Happy Tenant Company - set up in 2012 to provide an alternative to what it calls “expensive property management offered by traditional letting agents” - has made the acquisition and says it is likely to hold a conference for the sector later this year.
No details of the conference have been revealed but Adam Joseph, chief executive of The Happy Tenant Company says: “This acquisition is part of our wider business plan to expand communication with landlords whilst at the same time, connect them with property professionals and suppliers. Our aim now is to establish partnerships with other like companies, who we are already in discussions with, to ensure the conference progresses.”
The Landlord and Letting show and annual awards were introduced in 2009.
The Happy Tenant Company says it is not a letting agent but a ‘residential asset management business’ managing over half a billion pounds worth of property,
Its pitch to letting agents is that with a shortage of stock in the market, agents are heavily competing for landlord instructions - the company says it “hands high quality available stock to the agents.”
