  • Package management in residential buildings has quickly become a hot topic. It seems like every day, the amount of deliveries your team has to handle just grows and grows.Naturally, this is having a huge effect on workloads, costing site teams countless hours over the weeks and months. Not only are they fulfilling their roles as managers and resident advisers, they’re on the fringe of becoming full-time postal workers, too.

  • Maximising rent collected in a residential building usually boils down to one core element: keeping the tenants in situ happy. The more “at home” they feel, the more likely you are to retain their custom, which means:

    • Accepting rent increases
    • Minimising revenue lost through void periods
    • You won’t have to spend time and money finding a replacement tenant
    • Your staff can continue to build on their relationships with existing tenants (which can be very useful for resolving issues quickly and calmly)
    For a great number of renters across PRS, PBSA and BTR, tenant amenities play a huge part in their happiness. According to research by Knight Frank and UCAS, 91% of students claimed the facilities on offer influenced where they chose to live.
