A highly experienced property professional has launched a new business in Ipswich to take advantage of the growing number of people renting.
Entrepreneur Donna Turner, a former lettings manager for a well-known business in the town, has become a licensee for VeriSmart Inventories.
She compiles inventories for letting agents and landlords using a copyrighted system including the best in voice recognition technology – and intends to grow the business and create jobs.
The speed and accuracy of her reports saves landlords and letting agents a great deal of time and money as well as keeping them legal and their tenants are safe.
Prior to a property being rented the landlord or agent requires an inventory compiling.
Donna’s process is completely paper-free and the inventories are automatically emailed to agents and tenants for online verification.
Additionally, and in line with current legislation and the housing health and rating system requirements for landlords and their agents, Donna provides extra compliance services.
These include legionella and fire risk assessments, proper carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke detector testing (using synthetic smoke and CO), PAT testing and health and safety reports.
Donna said: “When I was looking at starting my own business I found VeriSmart Inventories and began to research it.
“Then I found that the chairman, Jonathan Senior, was the same person who had trained me more than ten years ago.
“That was before the company created its amazing software and rebranded – I knew then I had to invest in it and bring the brand to Ipswich.
“As everyone knows, it is becoming increasingly difficult for first time buyers to get on the property ladder and so there are more and more people renting, which is why I anticipate strong growth.
“After moving into lettings I found I missed doing inventories so I’m delighted to be back. The VeriSmart system is so much more advanced than what I worked with ten years ago.
“I can compile the reports incredibly quickly and accurately which agents and tenants appreciate.
“I know the lettings business in Ipswich very well having worked here for so long and I am offering a free inventory for potential clients to trial the service.”
VeriSmart Inventories is headquartered in Poole, Dorset.
Notes to editors:
VeriSmart Inventories was re-branded in 2015 after developing its unique smart verification software that allows for the paper-free inventories to be compiled with speed and accuracy. The company was launched 25 years ago in the Bournemouth and Poole conurbation in Dorset, where it is still headquartered. The new technology allowed the business to adopt a franchise model. Some of its licensees make a substantial six figure income. It operates across England and now Wales.
