Being a landlord can be financially rewarding, but managing several properties on your own is not always easy, and so to help reduce the administrative burden, E.ON has launched a new service for private landlords which helps them manage the energy accounts and costs of multiple properties online.
The launch of the new tool will enable buy-to-let landlords to ensure meter readings are kept up to date and that they are billed accurately and appropriately.
Although it’s anticipated the ‘E.ON Landlord’ service will be particularly helpful for landlords with numerous properties in their portfolio, those with just one property should also find the service useful.
E.ON Landlord can help private landlords access information about their property portfolio anytime, day or night, view at a glance the current status of each property, submit opening and closing meter readings, input information about if and when gas safety checks are required at a property, as well as register interest for self-reading smart meters at their properties to help tenants better manage their energy use.
David Bird, managing director of E.ON’s residential business, said: “Anyone who runs a household’s finances knows that there can be a lot of admin involved. We know this can be a huge challenge for landlords with multiple properties, so we’ve launched our E.ON Landlord online service and tariff to help make the whole process easier and to allow landlords to better control their property portfolios.
“As well as being able to access the service whenever it suits them, landlords can now easily view and update the status of numerous properties through one easy to use tool.”
