Have you changed the way you inspect properties? The coronavirus pandemic has led to massive changes in how we make use of technology and the property management sector is no exception. Lockdown restrictions mean that it has become much more difficult for landlords and agents to gain entry to tenanted properties in order to carry out standard property inspections. However, moving your business affairs online and taking advantage of sector-specific software could help you carry out your business as normal, just in a slightly different modern format!
What restrictions has the coronavirus pandemic caused when looking to inspect properties?
The coronavirus pandemic has caused an unprecedented level of disruption to all sectors, and the property sector is no exception. Restrictions on mixing between households have made things like property inspections, which involve going into tenants’ homes, impossible to carry out in person. However, rather than causing the sector to grind to a halt, the coronavirus pandemic has led to a fantastic amount of innovation within the sector, with new, helpful software being developed at an incredibly fast rate.
