Adding a property will allow you to manage the marketing, compliance, ownership and communication aspects of your portfolio.
Often referred to as a unit, by adding your room you are creating a unique space within your property that will have its own rent schedule, communication and maintenance linked to it. You can add and deactivate rooms to match where you are in your business.
As an owner or manager of a rental property, you are legally required to have certain documents in place (such as an HMO license) ahead of the room being rented. We have made this as easy for you as possible.
By adding a property and a room you are adding a ‘shell’. By adding a detailed description, great photos and highlighting key amenities, you are putting yourself in the very best position to attract the best tenants at the best price.
Adding a welcome pack is a great way to show off your personality and humanity to your tenants, so be creative (and informative) when putting this together. By adding property ownership information at the outset you'll give yourself a far easier job when putting together your financial statements and keeping tabs on any split in your portfolio.
Once you have added your properties and rooms, you now need to add your tenants. This will either be adding an existing tenant or onboarding a new one - both of which can be handled at this stage.
