New deal means ‘we can make compliance easier for landlords’

Purplebricks believes that it now has an advantage over its competitors after signing up to use compliance platform Kamma.

With more regulation hitting the private rented sector, in the form of property licensing schemes and ever-tightening domestic Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), Purplebricks hopes that its new partnership with Kamma, previously known as GetRentr until September 2019, will better help the firm remain compliant.

The software continually tracks local laws and regulations, monitoring the compliance status of properties across the country.

The idea is that providing access to Kamma’s technology means landlords using Purplebricks will be able to minimise risk and maintain standards with real-time compliance requirements and status for any property in their portfolio.

Helen Ogden, head of lettings at Purplebricks, commented: “Our aim is to use technology to give our customers the best possible service – and this new relationship with Kamma will mean we can make compliance easier for landlords, saving them both time and money.”

Kamma CEO, Orla Shields, added: “Purplebricks is a market leader in the estate agency market and Kamma is proud to support their lettings service. Purplebricks customers will now be able to get immediate access to the information they need, supporting compliance and reducing risk of fines.”

    Pee Bee will be having a right old chuckle at this but pleased to see them  taking compliance seriously  whilst every single day on ZPL old chestnuts  reappear as freshly polished first  listed for Bricks.
      Helen Ogden .Head of Lettings must be rueing the day she left her position as MD at  Leeds based Haus who seem to be going great guns.
      Lettings inventory at Bricks has dwindled to just 172 nationwide ZPL

      Haus have 196 in the Leeds area alone !

      I sincerely wish I could.

      Clearly their attitude to “compliance” is to farm it out as far as possible and sit back thinking they are absolved from any responsibility to their paying clients or to those looking at the properties they list.

      This isn’t the industry I signed up to in the late ’70s.
