*UPDATED 16th January 2020*
Following a recent announcement this week, it appears UPad have been purchased by Howsy.
While it’s great news to hear that many of the original staff will be re-employed, there are probably still many pre-acquisition UPad customer that would prefer to move elsewhere.
What do I do next?
For all of those landlords, we are here to help if we can.
Our service is very similar to that of Upad, and we can assist you with everything and anything you need from a simple contract, to a stress free take-over of your existing property management or rent collection service.
If you already have an existing management or rent collection contract with Upad, we’ll transfer you, free of charge, to our service.
To answer a few of the questions you’re bound to be wondering about us …
1. Are we any good? The reviews speak for themselves. In fact, we are the highest rated online letting agent according to Trustpilot. You can read all of our reviews here.
2. What’s stopping you going out of business? We’ve been in business since late 2011, and provide a full range of services at a fair price. We aren’t “bargain basement”, and have absolutely no intention of being so. We’ve seen many many online agents come and go over the years; the race to the bottom is not the way to go if you want a stable business.
We, unlike many online agents, don’t owe money to anyone; not lenders, not private investors, not even to our founding members. Because we have no debt, and are careful to make sure we don’t over-exceed ourselves, you can be sure we’ll be with you for the long run.
The fact is, the lettings industry is in a bit of turmoil at the moment, there are many well known high street agents putting out profit warnings and struggling to cope with all the new legislation and drop in demand. There are more casualties to come over the next few months/years and we don’t intend on being one of them.
We believe in a good service at a fair price, simple as that. We let hundreds of properties every month and manage properties all over the country.
