Automated lettings platform PlanetRent has partnered with legal firm LegalforLandlords, to help support landlords with their legal requirements.
The Warrington-based legal service has an in-house legal team, but also offers services from a selection of partners, which includes the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Equifax; it provides support from basic legal matters to advice on dealing with difficult tenants.
PlanetRent automates key processes in the lettings process such as compliance and marketing, and was developed in-house by residential property consultancy Ringley Group.
The announcement comes just a month after the business unveiled its partnership with The360View to offer virtual tours of rental properties.
Mary-Anne Bowring (pictured), group managing director at Ringley and creator of PlanetRent, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with LegalforLandlords, which will enable landlords to access legal advice for any problems they face.
“Landlords and agents who use PlanetRent will be able to directly access the services of LegalforLandlords through our platform.
“All landlords, whether large or small should always be able to access legal advice and support, and this partnership will enable landlords who use PlanetRent to use the services offered by LegalforLandlords.”
