Online Letting Agents

Online letting agents

The world of lettings is changing, for the letting agents and landlords!  There are some new kids on the block re-writting the rule book – Visum is one of the largest online letting agents in the UK and setting the trend.

Visum has been an online letting agent for some 6+ years now, helping hundreds of landlords at anyone time across the UK with a range of services from rental property advertising, tenant eviction, section 8 notices, section 21 notices, tenant referencing, rent guarantee insurance.  Online letting agents like Visum usually offer great value for money, being online you can expect the same great level of service and professional advice, but, as online letting agents are utilizing technology to reduce costs (such as old fashioned paper advertising) those savings get passed along to you, the landlord.

Like many online letting agents Visum do not insist you take a fixed product, we offer a range of services that you pick and chose from, take what you need and leave the rest.  This is great for all landlords, the less experience landlord has all the support they need and the more experienced portfolio landlord can just take the services they require like tenant finding.


Online letting agents – differences to the traditional

Online letting agents (well certainly Visum) differ from the traditional letting agent in that they tend to offer all the more remote services like rental property advertising (rightmove advertising etc), tenant referencing, credit checks, guarantor checks, landlord insurance, rent guarantee insurance, tenant eviction paperwork etc, but, do not generally get involved in the day to day management such as collecting rent, chasing rent, inspections, move in or move out etc.


Online letting agents – are they for everyone?

No, online letting agents tend to be the more techno savvey landlords out there, who are able to comfortably navigate a web site, open PDF files, and send/receive emails.  Also, due to the nature of an online agent offering more the remote services they are often tailored more for the hands on landlords.  This is not of course always the case, Visum will tailor it’s service to match your experience and needs.
