HMO support with multiple rentable rooms

HMO Landlords can now set up their properties with the layout of the rooms. You can add rooms using the intelligent room configurator or just single rooms as required. Just access via the “Multi Add” action menu item and based on the property type we will present you with a set of room types for that property which you can edit before finalising the generation of the rooms. You can then add further details about the room such as target rent and size.

  • Tenants, documents, and transactions can all now be recorded against these individual rooms.

  • Enable chat and communication between roommates and ensure everyone is up to date on your property and any maintenance issues.

  • Share documents with all your tenants with a single upload to your property.

In the future you will be able to perform inspections on your property based upon the rooms and equipment composition. We are working on this now so will have it with you soon.
