A new deal between a trade body and a high profile industry supplier means landlords can now hire assistants to handle viewings on their behalf.
The National Residential Landlords Association is now in a commercial partnership with Viewber - a service which until now has been aimed mostly at agents.
The collaboration means the NRLA’s 94,000-plus members will now be able to conduct viewings, both hosted and livestream, and inspections of their properties, even if they themselves aren’t located nearby.
Viewber’s national team of assistants provide landlords with on the ground ‘last mile’ support - this offers hosting in-person or online viewings, including live-streaming, and providing 360-degree tours.
Ed Mead, a former London agency who is a co-founder of Viewber, says: “Our national last mile services are increasingly bringing much easier management of property, both blocks and pepper potted portfolios, to hundreds of landlords already. NRLA’s professional landlords are an obvious fit and we look forward to working with an ever more professionalised sector backed by an association genuinely looking to offer their members better value.”
Ben Beadle, chief executive of the NRLA, adds: “With the pandemic forcing many private landlords to reconsider how they oversee their portfolios, our association with Viewber will ensure our members will be able to think more creatively about how they manage their properties.
“This latest partnership provides our members with a convenient, easily accessible new service which will give them significantly more flexibility in future.”
