The successful property inventory company VeriSmart Inventories has launched a new business centred in Royal Tunbridge Wells.
It will help service the demand that the rapidly increasing growth in the rental sector has created.
Entrepreneur Louise Smith, who has previously worked in advertising and estate agencies, is now the local licensee for VeriSmart Inventories.
She compiles inventories for letting agents and landlords using a copyrighted system including advanced voice recognition technology – and is looking forward to growing the business and creating 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 safe.
Prior to a property being rented the landlord or agent requires an inventory compiling.
Louise’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 safety rating system requirements (HHSRS) for landlords and their agents, Louise 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.
Louise said: “After many years selling advertising for prestigious magazines I did some work for an estate agent and found I enjoyed being out and about dealing with properties.
“This is an excellent opportunity to start my own business in an industry I enjoy – I wish I had discovered it earlier.
“With the rental market growing and the increased emphasis on compliance it is a good time to be offering these services.
“VeriSmart appealed to me as it has an excellent reputation for providing a quality service to clients and has an extensive training programme.
“I felt it was a company I could be proud to be part of and I look forward to working with agents in Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas including East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Crowborough as well as all the villages in between.
“My customers will find that they can rely on me to give a professional service and work with them to make providing inventories as chore free as possible.
“The VeriSmart booking system is so quick and easy to use it helps to free up agents’ time.
“And the investment made by VeriSmart in the latest technology means agents and tenants will receive accurate, detailed inventories quickly – this speed of process allows me to work cost-effectively and therefore keep prices competitive.
“We have seen a huge increase in business across the Kent and Sussex area so now is the right time to have an office dedicated to Tunbridge Wells which is able to grow and meet that demand.”
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.
