UniHomes, a student accommodation platform, has snapped up Split The Bills, a bill sharing service aimed at the student market.
UniHomes - which already works with lettings agencies in 25 student-dense cities - says it can now not only help students find accommodation but also simplify the search for utilities and broadband services in an all-inclusive cost.
The UniHomes platform claims to have recorded a 60 per cent rise in users during 2020 plus a 75 per cent boost in lettings agency partnerships.
Over 14,000 student properties are advertised on the platform, which offers letting agents with HMO student properties free listings.
Co-founder Phil Greaves says: “Our goal is to become synonymous as the go-to accommodation portal for students, providing the best choice of available properties with the added bonus that bills are included.
“Our vast network of letting agent partners recognise the power of our offering. Adding UniHomes to an agent’s list of portal partners opens the market up to them considerably and, even better, we’re completely free of charge to agents.”
