PropTech companies Kamma and Veri-Check are consolidating an existing partnership.
Kamma users can already access Veri-Check’s instant property licensing checks, but in addition can now complete the licence application directly from the platform.
Kamma claims the growth of discretionary licensing schemes across the 408 local authorities in the UK has created a complex web of rules and regulations that landlords and agents have to follow, with unlicensed properties leading to fines and Rent Repayment Orders.
Su Colledge, director of Veri-Check, says:With ever increasing licensing schemes and focus on enforcement, this is a quick and simple solution for peace of mind”.
And Kamma CEO Orla Shields adds: “We anticipate that agents will take this more as an upsell opportunity, delivering a premium service for their landlords whilst also being able to make a mark-up on the licence application fee. With the administrative burden removed thanks to our partnership, this can act as a new source of passive revenue for any letting agencies affected by property licensing schemes”.
