A Nudge button will help push deals through and everything is tracked on the built-in audit trail.

The compliance dashboard allows you to manage risk from one place, ensuring that you have all the correct documentation in place, and that it's up to date. Once your deal has been completed, you can export to your own accounting system for rent collection or have us collect on your behalf via direct debit.

Direct debit rent collection allows you to streamline the collection process and minimise arrears. We can collect rent from individual tenants and recover bounced payments automatically. Collection by direct debit puts you in control and costs 1.8% (1.5% + VAT) of the rent.

Your FREE tenant portal Invite tenants to referencing, allow them to make payments by card or bank transfer using a simple link. Throughout the tenancy, tenants can login to upload photos of repair issues, as well as track & rate existing repairs. They can also access related tenancy documents such as; contracts, inventories, meter details & service targets.

FREE repairs module. You & your tenants can photo log/track repairs in real-time. Manage your contractors and know for example if they do not ACCEPT a job within 2 hours. Input your own contractor target response times to manage service levels. Job well done? Then send 4*/5* ratings to a dedicated facebook page. Allocate preferred contractors to each property.

Reporting -Feel secure with our legal compliance report. Know exactly what has been sent, when and to whom. Use the compliance dashboard to keep your documentation up to date. A single tick in App Setup, will auto send the five documents you must legally provide to tenants - thereby avoiding potential fines for incomplete paperwork (some in excess of £20,000).

Protecting you. The app has a powerful built in rent calculator, taking the guess work out of knowing when you need a guarantor - they are automatically added to the referencing application if necessary. You are guided through the right to rent verification process. Comprehensive Move-in checks ensure that nothing gets forgotten, right down to photographing the keys.

Card payments & bank transfers are built into the app making the collection of deposit and move in monies simple and secure.

Referencing - You can use your existing VeriCheck account, or if you don't have one we offer £20 pay-as-you-go referencing. You can also carry out your own manual referencing. Either way you can click to invite tenants to the tenant portal to input their details.

DIY inventories are easy with our Quick Inventory App. If you prefer to use an Inventory Clerk we have partnered with Evolve who also use Quick Inventory and offer a national service. Either way your meter readings will auto feed into the PlanetRent's move in checklist.

Viewings solved.We have partnered with Viewber for national coverage. Carry out block viewings from £75 per hour or £35 for single viewings. So if you don't want to do viewings yourself, or have multiple properties in different locations, then just tick become a Viewber member in the App set up and you can book individual or block viewings.
