New partner portal delivers multiple benefits for landlords and PBSA providers

  • Housing Hand reveals new portal, designed to reduce risk and increase revenue for accommodation providers
  • Partner portal is one of a number of new services being rolled out in 2021
  • Best-in-class solutions are raising the bar for rental guarantor services

UK rental guarantor service Housing Hand has launched a new partner portal to create a slicker onboarding experience for accommodation providers. The new feature supports providers to increase their revenue, by delivering more connections with potential tenants through Housing Hand’s House Finder Service, while decrease their costs thanks to the portals’ speedy process and ease of use.

Accommodation providers can also reduce their risk and enjoy peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that Housing Hand has paid out on 100% of all valid default claims over the past eight years.  

Housing Hand is the only award-winning provider of rental guarantor services in the UK. The trusted, insurance-backed company works with landlords, lettings agents, purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) providers, universities and others to support students and professionals into rented accommodation. It does so by acting as a guarantor for the tenant, removing the barrier that the absence of a guarantor would otherwise present.

The new portal, which is packed with video explainers and interactive features, will make it easier and faster for accommodation providers to work in partnership with Housing Hand to ensure that their tenants won’t leave them out of pocket.

The benefits of using a rental guarantor service extend to all those involved in the rental transaction. By making the process of working with our guarantor service even easier, we are reducing friction and risk at the heart of the rental process. This will enable landlords and other accommodation providers to maximise their revenue, while tenants can enjoy long-term peace of mind.”

Terry Mason, Group Operations Director, Housing Hand

Launched in early June, the new partner portal is one of a raft of new features being rolled out by the Housing Hand team in 2021, as part of the company’s significant growth during the pandemic. Newly appointed Head of Sales and Business Development James Maguire comments:

“We’re rolling out a range of improvements and new services over the course of this year, enhancing the user experience that accommodation providers and tenants have when they work with Housing Hand. We’re flexing the business in response to current and future market conditions, including addressing issues such as lifetime deposits and other aspects of the Renters’ Reform Bill. Watch this space for further developments!”

Landlords, letting agents, PBSA providers and universities are already benefitting from the new Housing Hand portal. As the country’s largest rental guarantor service, the company is keen to deliver best-in-class solutions for its partners, serving to raise the bar across the rental sector.
