Many of you already know about the benefits of using Upad and how you can save thousands of pounds a year compared to high street letting agents. Aside from the cost-saving benefits, our technology ecosystem can also make managing your portfolio easier and your buy-to-let business more efficient and profitable.

Here are 5 benefits you can enjoy when choosing to use Upad to help you manage your property portfolio. 

1. Online Signatures for Tenancy Agreements

Upad’s Echosign technology allows the use of online signatures when signing contracts. This means that you and your tenant can sign the tenancy agreements online at a time that suits you. This saves a lot of time and hassle – you don’t have to organise a meet-up just for signing the documents. 

2. Legal and Compliance Documentation in the Cloud and Within Easy Access

Letting out a property involves a lot of paperwork. There are numerous legal and compliance documents you have to keep track of and provide to tenants before and during the tenancy. The Upad online account for landlords operates in the cloud, allowing you to upload all the documents into a single place with easy access to those files from wherever and whenever you need. You can ensure tenants are updated and have the correct information at all times. 

3. Rent Collections Through Direct Debit

Collecting rent is one of the main concerns landlords have. With Upad, you can set up a Direct Debit that makes this whole process straightforward. This system is not just simple but it will provide you with more security and peace of mind in terms of being paid on time. Each month, we’ll inform you when you are paid, or let you know if you aren’t paid, or if the tenant cancels the direct debit instruction. This way you can tackle any potential problems with rent payment as soon as possible, avoid tenants falling into arrears, and get your buy-to-let mortgage paid on time.

You don’t have to spend time checking your accounts, either. You can trust the system to alert you to anything you need to know. 

4. Comprehensive Online Account Management

Upad landlords get access to an online account that makes managing your properties and tenants easier. You can update your property details with just a few clicks of a button. All the information is available and any changes you make can be easily viewed through the system. The online account also allows you to market your property as many times as you want. Any information you’ve added and all the changes you’ve made remain saved – the next time your property is vacant, you can start advertising straight away, as all your details are right there waiting for you! 

5. Upad Landlord Club Benefits


Upad landlords can also join our Landlord Club for £149 a year and enjoy a wide range of benefits, including free access to helpful information and resources. Our free helplines include tax advisory services, mortgage brokers, and legal professionals. Upad Landlord Club members also get exclusive access to webinars and guides that make it easier to be a landlord.

These five benefits are yet another reason to choose Upad when looking for a letting agent. You’ll end up saving a lot of time and money. Our technology ecosystem removes a lot of the hassle of being a landlord and allows you to make the most of your buy-to-let business.
