If you are thinking of becoming a landlord or you are expanding your property portfolio, organisation is the key to success. Being a landlord can be stressful, especially if you have more than the one property. With many tenants, rent dates, and looking after your properties, there is a lot to do. Fortunately, there is an app to help with everything these days. There are apps that help with the tasks and the record-keeping that is involved in being a landlord. Here is a look at five of the best and most useful.
This app stores all your paperwork in one place. It features a dashboard that is easy to navigate around, and you can access information on all your tenants’ details, property information, when rent is due and when it was collected. It stores information on any arrears and lists of maintenance work that needs to be done. This app is priced per property that you use, which amounts to around £6 per year, per property. Keeping on top of rent due is crucial, and this app helps you to do that.
Costing a one-off £9.99, this app is an excellent visual tool for when you are getting ready for new tenants. Take videos and pictures of your property, along with your comments, and produce reports for yourself and your tenants.
If you are new to property inventory software, this one is perfect. It allows you to take video of each room and store details of the inventory inside the app. For a selection of apps to help with inventories, look at sites like inventorybase.co.uk for inspiration.
With potential tenants most likely searching for a place online, you should list your property online, too. This app helps you do that, with a £20 per property fee. This clever app also provides a credit check, a previous landlord reference, and an employer reference for your new tenants.
This is the app version of an agency. Tenants book viewings with you through this app, and it also draws up tenancy agreements online that you both sign.
Bring your property into the modern day with these excellent landlord apps that can save you a lot of time and effort!
