Automated lettings platform PlanetRent has launched an app for tenants.

Through the app, tenants will be able to access important documents such as their tenancy agreement, gas safety certificate and inventory checklist.

In addition, users will be able to log repairs and maintenance requests directly through the app rather than having to call or email their agent or landlord.

The app will also directly notify the tenant when any maintenance or repairs have been completed.

Floorplans of properties and utility references are both accessible through the app.

PlanetRent has been developed in-house by residential property consultancy Ringley Group.

Mary-Anne Bowring, group managing director at Ringley and creator of PlanetRent, said: “Having launched PlanetRent earlier this year, we’re now delighted to bring our tenant-facing app to market.

“[The app enables] renters to access their portal directly from their smartphone, meaning they can do everything from requesting repairs to accessing key documents such as their tenancy agreement while on the move with a simple touch of a button.

“With another lockdown or further social distancing restrictions imminent, the ability to work remotely and seamlessly while minimising human contact will be crucial and PlanetRent will help landlords, agents, contractors and tenants do exactly that.”
