Upad Upad began in 2007 and has grown into the UK's largest online lettings agency by offering a simpler, more cost-effective way to find tenants and let a property. This has proved equally popular among landlords who previously used a high street letting agent to find tenants as well as those who used classified channels. Last year, we helped rent over 10,000 properties: our biggest year so far.

We are different because instead of being a local lettings agency, we offer a national service that enables us to offer cost savings through economies of scale. We still provide expert support to our landlords over the phone seven days a week, while the tools and know-how we offer can be accessed online any time of the day or night.
Highlights

read more › Your ARLA qualified Account Manager and the rest of the Upad team are focused solely on helping you find the right tenants as fast as possible, 7 days a week. Over the past 5 years we've become the leading online letting agent. We learn from every property we let and continually update our services to make sure they deliver every time. View our properties. We are here to help you make the right choice but we believe you should meet your tenants and choose the right person for your property. Your personal landlord dashboard provides you with up-to-the-minute information on your tenant find, plus you can re-advertise at the touch of a button.

read more › After creating a property advert some checks are made to make sure it's as good as it can be. Then we'll ensure it's displayed on all the main UK lettings websites such as Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and others. Advert responses come into your Upad dashboard. Where you'll have everything you need to liaise directly with the prospective tenants, organise a viewing and show them around the property. Once you've selected your tenants, we'll handle referencing them. We'll check their credit history, ensure they can afford the rent and seek references from others (if required).

read more › We had looked into using the high street, spoke with a few agents, all very pushy, wanting to take photos and visit before we were ready. Not happy to provide us with cost prices/contracts upfront until seen the flat as they could then do a "deal". But mostly we discovered that they would take an annual fee/percentage of rent income EVERY YEAR - even if it was the same tenant. When asked why a continuing cost they could not answer. Fantastic, really good help from George, who discussed our advert, advised ways to re-word the advert and explained which photos to use in which order.

read more › Discounts for advertising multiple rooms. Advertising credits don't expire, so you can use them whenever you need to find a new tenant. We'll send our local, fully-qualified inventory clerk to create a full inventory and schedule of condition report. Essential when dealing with tenant bonds. Sit back and let Upad take care of all the admin! We will manage and complete an ARLA approved bespoke tenancy agreement, standing order, deposit, first month's rent and register your deposit ensuring you are legally compliant.

One of our core values is to never settle, we're constantly innovating to give you the best technology to make life easier. Simple plans with one simple aim, to save you time and money. We don't charge a high percentage of your income or make you pay for things you don't need. We believe that you should have the choice to pick a fairly priced monthly plan and then add any one off extras you may need.

read more › There is a legal duty for landlords to assess and control the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria in their rental property. The law is clear that if you are a landlord and rent out your property (or even a room within your own home) then you have legal responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of your tenants. Landlords are required by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure their tenants are not at risk. Legionella Risk Assessment: A risk assessment is carried out to identify and assess the exposure to legionella bacteria from water systems on the premises and any precautionary measures needed.
