A PropTech firm is making its Covid-19 functionality free to use for agents, landlords and tenants facing challenges in accessing properties.
Launched earlier this month, Gas Tag’s new functionality makes it easier to report and report evidence of incidents where properties have not been able to be accessed because of incidents of self-isolation.
Originally developed to support Gas Tag’s existing clients specifically about gas compliance and fire safety, Gas Tag has opened up the functionality so that it can be used to cover all areas where access attempts are being made.
Gas Tag says it made the move after a sharp increase in failed access attempts being reported on its system as soon as the government announced its stay at home guidance.
Landlords and agents are currently being advised that where they are unable to access a property to carry out work that they should be able to provide evidence that reasonable attempts have been made.
The free functionality will be able to take a geotagged, time-stamped photographs of a property when they are unable to access and mark the incident as due to self-isolation.
