There's a London-based property renting 'brand', making renting designed around the resident with a smooth, simple and integrated living experience, that recently secured £2.5m in funding, and that company is named Residently.
The company want to change the way the world thinks about renting by providing their residents the flexibility and high level of service to match what is expected in every other part of our lives. Residently manages houses and flats for landlords, letting them directly to tenants on leases of up to five years, with management handled electronically through apps on tablets and smartphones.
The service will handle the finding and vetting of tenants and viewings for properties, and tenants can then use it to manage cleaning and other concierge-style services.
Residently does not levy tenant fees and enables renters to switch to other properties it manages - in London or some overseas cities.
Its new £2.5m funding complements £1.5m invested by founder Tom Allason who launched the platform in January 2017 in response to his frustrations renting homes in London, Silicon Valley and Seattle and the experience of being a London landlord.
