Tenant referencing and lettings insurance provider, Barbon Insurance Group, has teamed up with flatfair to co-market the two companies’ products and services.
Barbon, best known for its HomeLet and Rentshield Direct brands, hopes to enhance the new technology-based solution to tenancy deposit alternatives offered by flatfair.
The aim is to provide letting agents with a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution to seeking a comprehensive range of protection solutions for their landlords across referencing, insurance and deposits.
Vicky Quinn-Campbell, HomeLet’s head of sales, said : “Our HomeLet and Rentshield Direct teams are there to help arrange solutions which contribute to keeping our customers competitive and supporting them as they serve their existing landlords as well as trying to secure new instructions.
“An ability to source a comprehensive range of protection solutions which landlords’ value is now an essential part of the ‘marketing mix’.”
As well as the recent launch of a range of products combining referencing, rent insurance and legal services which are aimed at helping agents secure more revenue from each let, HomeLet and Rentshield Direct are embarking on a co-marketing arrangement with flatfair to cross-promote each other’s products and services and provide agents with convenient access to a wider range of solutions, saving them time and effort in the arranging of these important components of their landlord proposition.
Franz Doerr, founder and CEO of flatfair, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with the UK’s leading tenant referencing and insurance brand. The future of renting is evolving and one of flatfair’s key priorities is to help streamline all things deposits for landlords and managing agents, whilst offering a better customer experience. Our partnership with Barbon is a huge step in the right direction.”
