PropTech startup launches service for landlords


PropTech startup RentalStep has launched a service for landlords which enables them to professionally manage their portfolios from just £35 a month.


RentalStep is designed to help landlords navigate rising costs and increased compliance obligations and is being positioned as a low-cost alternative to letting agents.



The premium service is to be launched following the success of the company’s free service and includes a range of benefits including unlimited advertising on Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation.


The service also offers services including tenant referencing, credit check facilities, deposit protection, tenancy agreements, rent collection and an annual gas safety check.

The people behind RentalStep said the company was “created by landlords and tenants, for landlords and tenants. It was born out of the frustration of high costs and poor service from letting agents.”


RentalStep was launched in 2017 and is now used by almost 2,000 landlords and over 9,000 tenants.
