Property apps – landlordsrent.co.uk

My friend Alex Caravello has a cool digital tool that some of you may be interested in, Landlordsrent.co.uk. It’s a site that allows a Landlord to collect their rents via direct debit. Collecting rents via direct debit was not available to the small landlord, but now it is.

I asked Alex about landlordsrent.co.uk :

What is it?

LandlordsRent Direct Debit Rent Collection provides landlords with a small business Direct Debit solution for collection of rents and other housing related charges. The service is a secure, web-based, paperless solution that links directly into the BACS system and provides daily reporting of all collections.

Why do I need it?

You only need LandlordsRent Direct Debit Rent Collection if you want to make sure your rent gets paid on time each month! There is no better way to CONTROL your rent collection … and let’s face it, that’s why we’re in business, to get paid!

The Digital Landlord

Yulpa was born out of necessity. I have quite a number of properties, and as I’m sure you all know each property delivers a huge amount of data. Either, e-mail data, letters, photos, contracts. It/they have multiple people involved from solicitors, brokers, agents, maintenance, tenant communications etc etc. And I remember sitting at my desk surrounded by boxes, thinking ‘there must be a smarter way of dealing with all this data?”

So I had a go.

There are only three things you have to do to be a Landlord – acquire a property, own/manage a property and dispose of a property. Each one of these has it’s own nuances, but essentially that’s it.

Yulpa takes care of each one of these three things … all in one place.

Acquisition: Due diligence is one of the most essential parts of making an acquisition. You should never purchase anything on a whim or the say so of any third party – the best person to trust is the one you see in the mirror.

Homework & research needs to be undertaken to understand your investment from every angle.

Mobile supports ecommerce more than a desktop.

1. Beyond the demographics, the iPad’s interactivity (aka touchscreen) may make shopping easier than desktop, despite the smaller screen size. A 2011 study reported that 52% of tablet owners prefer to shop online using their tablets, while 40% preferred using a traditional computer.

2. Mobile Shoppers Are More Focused.

Mobile searchers and shoppers are task-focused and more specific in what they’re seeking.
In contrast, a full desktop site is packed with brand-related content, community interaction, company information and detailed research methods. Mobile, on the other hand, is lean, mean and clean.
