We are delighted to announce that we have agreed partnerships with Canopy and Fixflo, two pioneering services for the lettings industry. With new technology, changing requirements and younger tenants impacting today’s rental market, these latest pair of signings demonstrate that we are commitment to operating a forward-thinking, innovative lettings business as well as placing it at the forefront of technological advancements and delivering best-in-class service across all parts of the rental process.
National tech start-up, Canopy, aims to solve the growing deposit crisis for Generation Rent. It provides deposit-free renting and a unique rental passport for tenants in addition to comprehensive property protection for landlords. Fixflo provides a market-leading online picture-based reporting software, which allows tenants to report repairs in over 40 languages and provides the information needed by their property manager to resolve the issue.
Suzanne Diamond, Humberts Head of Lettings, comments: “We are delighted to be partnering with Canopy and Fixflo and put these new innovative systems in place for our landlords and tenants. The industry is moving at a rapid pace and it is vital that we offer state-of-the-art services designed to help ease the burden of financial deposits as well as improve daily life in a rental property.”
We launched our lettings division in August 2017, and it has been designed to offer landlords and tenants the ultimate in choice and flexibility along with the reassurance of a trusted brand with a 175-year heritage. The department consists of a traditional offering (Humberts Lettings), available in current branch locations, and online (Humberts Lettings Direct), accessible nationwide, allowing landlords to rent out their properties solely online.
Curran, McKay, Director of Business Development at Canopy, comments, "Canopy is proud to be working with such an established, highly regarded and innovative property company as Humberts. Our RentPassport and DepositFree offerings will now be made available to many more responsible, reliable tenants, and Humberts’ landlords will be given the comprehensive property protection that they rightly deserve."
Rajeev Nayyar, Fixflo’s Managing Director, adds: “Fixflo’s aim is to ensure that every tenant has the ability to submit comprehensive repair reports to make their lives and the lives of lettings agents and property managers easier. To that end, we’re very pleased to be partnering with Humberts to help them provide a best-in-class service for their lettings customers.”
