PropTech firm inks certification deal with huge rental agency

PropTech firm Symple has struck a deal to offer its certification services on thousands of properties listed with Sykes Holiday Cottages.

Sykes has some 17,000 owners on its books and a portfolio of over 22,000 properties, ranging from cosy cottages to larger accommodation for 20 or more guests. In total, Sykes hosts more than a million holidaymakers each year. 

Symple, headquartered in Swindon, is an online platform for agents and landlords which manage the property certificates they require by law for single and multiple sites, such as those for gas safety, boiler servicing, electrical installations, PAT testing and energy performance.


Prior to the Sykes deal its portfolio was 5,000 properties, and it uses a pool of service providers which it aims to expand to 2,000 over the next 12 months in line with increasing demand. 

A Sykes spokesperson says:”The platform will aid with the management of health and safety requirements and other certification that is required by law. Owners can book inspections that will not conflict with guest check-in times, and Symple will liaise with the key-holder if the owner lives in a different part of the country.”
