NRLA boosts services to landlords after big PropTech investment

The National Residential Landlords Association is moving into PropTech by providing a platform for safety compliance and one for managing aspects of tenancies.

The NRLA has purchased Safe2, a provider of all forms of property safety certification.

When a safety check determines that a property has not met legal minimum standards, Safe2 can provide a quote for whatever remedial work might need to be undertaken to address any outstanding issues. 


Where they rectify the problem, they will re-test the relevant system free of charge. 

In addition to this, NRLA members will also be entitled to a five per cent discount when using any of Safe2’s services.

The NRLA has also launched its new online property management platform - called Portfolio - which is free for all NRLA members, and provides landlords with a single place to manage all aspects of a tenancy.

Portfolio’s functionality allows users to create tenancy agreements, organise property viewings, manage communications with tenants, and ensure landlords are complying with their legal obligations.

The platform also gives landlords easy access to the NRLA’s advice services. 

Likewise, members will be able to use the information on Portfolio to advertise rooms and properties to let on Rightmove and Zoopla.

NRLA chief executive Ben Beadle says:  “The vast majority of landlords already provide safe and decent housing. 

“But with major reforms to the sector on the way, we want to make it easier for landlords to meet all their legal obligations, manage their properties and provide the best service possible to their tenants.

“The investment being made by the NRLA in new technologies and digital services will help us to achieve these objectives. 

“It will ensure responsible landlords are easily able to meet their legal requirements, at the same time as giving tenants greater confidence that the properties they rent are safe and secure.”

    Ok Ben, rather than looking for ways to make more money.
    How about you actually look after people that are already paying your wage, us Landlords.
    Stop kowtowing to the MP's and agreeing with the removal of Section 21.
    You know that 99% of Landlords do not want the removal of section 21 and yet won't raise a word for us regarding this in Parliament.
    Remember we pay your bills ,not the MP's...

    I agree that the NRLA , Could and should do more. Especially getting the message over to major Media outlets.
    We as an Industry should have got our message over better. Newspapers should be informing Tenants and the Public why Rents are going up . Why there is no rental Housing , and why landlords are selling up. Selective License fees . And why are things going wrong so badly and so quickly.
    Why is Gove rubber stamping whole sale licensing .

    And why they are likely to made Homeless when the Renters Reform Bill comes in .

    We should all inform our tenants of the facts , and request our tenants to contact their MPs and Mr Gove .

    The only information they have is that Landlords are kicking tenants out for no reason. and Landlords are all dodgy.
