A digital property management platform has gone live with a network of local agents covering some of the UK’s key cities.
Apropos has recruited a network of what it calls “highly experienced agents” covering 44 per cent of the UK including London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham
It works like this. Agents and landlords can track and manage their portfolio via an online dashboard with live notifications of all transactions as they happen.
Tenants can book viewings and provide feedback on the property, submit and track their full rental application online, pay their rent and book their check in date. In addition, they can report and monitor maintenance online during their tenancy.
“We felt that our digital platform, which was designed to transform the rental experience, offers an innovative, hassle-free solution for both landlords and tenants. While day to day activities are undoubtedly being severely challenged at the moment, this will change. Everybody needs to be prepared for the end of this crisis and we want to be sure that when coronavirus subsides, we are ready for the next phase of our development” according to the platform’s joint managing director David Alexander.
He says the platform - which took three years to develop and involved £7m of funding from a bank - draws on “our 40 years of experience in the letting sector.”
