A new property management portal claims to be on a mission to raise the standard of the property industry by establishing new standards of transparency, fairness, and convenience for the benefit of both landlords and tenants.
Apropos, a bespoke portal designed and built by independent property management firm DJ Alexander Ltd, will initially launch in a select number of cities during the second quarter of 2019 before the service is rolled nationwide.
Technology and a network of local property experts will be important to the success of the new property management platform.
Joint managing directors David and John Alexander explained: “The number of properties in the Private Rental Sector has more than doubled in the last fifteen years and now accounts for over 20% of all housing stock in the UK, around 5.5m households.
“Across the UK millions of people rely on or contribute to the PRS yet the current process often leaves many feeling let down. With over 40 years of experience in the market we fully understand the frustrations of both landlords and tenants.
“Over the last two years we have completely re-engineered the property management process. We firmly believe with apropos we can deliver a vastly improved level of service that will reassure landlords and ultimately make tenants feel more comfortable and secure in their homes.”
Apropos will provide 24-hour access for tenants and landlords to input and access data.
Both tenants and landlords can view all relevant information and monitor responses and actions directly. This ensures that all participants know exactly what is going on at any time, according to David Alexander.
He commented: “Our mission is to set a new standard in property management and to ensure that the rental experience is beneficial to all involved, Key to this is not simply the software, our service will be supported by our experienced head office staff and our growing network of apropos business partners.”
