We are thrilled to announce that Upad won this year’s ESTAS award for Best Online Agent!

This award means even more to us as it was voted by our landlords and we had an incredible rating score- proving our dedication to top notch customer service pays off.

Earlier in the year, Upad reported a record month and in May 2017 we can reveal that we are tracking to take 44% more revenue year on year. We’ve continued to see strong growth with new landlord registrations up by 76% and our level of revenue growth doubled year on year in Q1 of 2017. 

We also saw a huge return of repeat customers, testament to our obsession with providing an exceptional level of service to landlords, with 35% more revenue from returning customers.

With all these exciting developments, we are now very close to completing our £5 million investment round, in fact, we have more people interested in investing than there is space! Those investing include employees of Jefferies, several HNWs, a national top end estate agency, a London/SE centric estate agency, existing investors and Upad customers.


Because of the huge amount of interest from investors, we will be closing this round on Friday 26th of May. The final part of this round will close 4 weeks later, to allow additional time for due diligence checks from larger investors. 

We have also reached agreements with three regional newspaper groups: Trinity Mirror, Johnston Press and Newsquest, who will be promoting Upad in print and online editorial very shortly. We are very excited to be involved with these groups and marks yet another exciting development for Upad.

If you are interested in taking part in this funding round, we’d like to know your intentions so that the final weeks of this investment round work out for all those involved. For more information, do please contact James, our Founder and CEO at
