A new lettings portal which claims it will offer a ‘truly digital rental experience’ with a ‘three click management process’ for landlords is ready to go live in the new year.
Accommodation.co.uk has already undergone localised beta testing, the entrepreneurs behind it say. It is now looking for partners around the UK with the aim of rolling the service out across the country during 1Q 2019.
The concept seems to be to use self-employed lettings experts in local areas who will have access to a centralised, automated portal in order to promote their properties and run their business.
Accommodation.co.uk says; “We give (landlords) the ability to offer a truly digital rental experience, which tenants have come to expect. We help landlords, letting agencies and build-to-rent providers reduce costs, free up time and find great tenants. Best of all, we keep everything really simple with our 3-click management process.”
There’s little doubt that any service which makes letting property simple, inexpensive and genuinely possible online will be a very appealing one – more so in view of the upcoming tenant fees ban. Of course, Accommodation.co.uk will most likely face the same challenges as portals like Purplebricks and, dare we say, Emoov in getting established. So it’s to be hoped the entrepreneurs behind it have access to plenty of funding.
