For the owners of rented properties, managing the maintenance of the properties, with the multiple incidents that may arise, and maintaining fluid contact with the tenants can be complicated and tedious.

Here are some apps designed to make life easier for landlords and tenants.

Rental management

From the beginning, renting a property requires time and carry out a series of actions such as finding and finding the right tenant, negotiating the clauses and drafting the contract, reviewing the guarantees and receiving the bonds.

All this is nothing compared to the work and time it takes to provide a good maintenance service in rented homes or premises, and coordination and communication with tenants, especially when a household appliance is damaged, there is a problem of supply with a service, or it is necessary to fix any damage to the property. In these cases, it is necessary to contact the tenants to agree on the day and time at which the service providers and/or the technicians who have to make the arrangements can access the house to work.

In the case of complete building blocks, the need for maintenance is multiplied, with the management being even more difficult.

The solution for landlords

Apps that facilitate everything related to the rental market, connecting tenants and owners to facilitate the management of repairs, maintenance, contracts and bonds are the expected help in the sector.

Fixflo is an English app specializing in maintenance where tenants can specify what kind of problem they are having in their home, giving all the details and even attaching images from their mobile phone so that the owner and technicians can get a better idea of ​​the magnitude of the problem.

Once the report has been submitted, tenants receive an automatic response with the availability of time for repairs. In addition, they always have the possibility of contacting customer service.

Something very remarkable about this application is that it allows communication in more than 40 languages, an interesting feature for tourist areas and access from any type of device.

In Spain, HolaHome already exists, which in addition to everything related to repairs, adds other really useful functionalities such as notices when the expiration of the contracts, management of the inventory of the properties, storage of all the digitized documentation, real-time notification of defaults and contracting through the app of insurance, services and technicians.

The advantages of this type of app are clear:

  • It represents a saving in the investment of time and money.
  • It facilitates daily management, improving the productivity generated by the properties.
  • It establishes a better relationship between landlord and tenant, giving both parties more security and trust.

These technological innovations bring ideas that facilitate the operation of the sector, simplifying processes, connecting and creating communication flows, and everything, through a mobile phone.
