CheckDocs takes the compliance strain of Hamptons

Published: 7 Jun, 2021
Today, pioneering property compliance firm CheckDocs announced that leading UK estate agency chain, Hamptons, has joined its growing portfolio of clients. With over 90 branches and a prestigious pedigree stretching back over 150 years, the Hamptons team understands the importance – and frustration – of managing compliance over a large property lettings portfolio.

Hamptons joins fellow lettings titans Countrywide and LRG in trusting market-leading CheckDocs to effectively manage their risk – today and tomorrow. With a raft of forthcoming regulation being added to the already overwhelming compliance burden, CheckDocs brings both operational efficiencies and peace of mind to the lettings sector. CheckDocs is the only packaged, unified solution for lettings agents and currently takes care of three key compliance areas: Right to Rent, Property Licensing and EPC Auditing.

Coming from the same stable as PropCo and Technology Blueprint, the CheckDocs team has unrivalled experience of both proptech and the lettings sector’s needs. CheckDocs identifies the client’s risk profile across their property portfolio via an interactive dashboard. Users can search for non-compliant properties with filters, and monitor licensing issues in one place, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual checks.

With close ties to the innovative PropCo CRM property management platform, CheckDocs is one of the only compliance management software that fully integrates into a CRM system for large property portfolios. This sophisticated integration solves one of the agent’s biggest headaches – managing compliance in HMOs. CheckDocs is able to constantly update information within PropCo, enabling agents to access all the information they need in one place, in a single view, slashing manual errors and avoiding duplication of effort.

“Managing compliance across a large portfolio is incredibly tough. The CheckDocs team, with extensive proptech experience and a deep understanding of the changing needs of the lettings market, was the clear choice to partner with Hamptons.”
Hamptons Compliance Manager, Sandra Donovan

Vik Tara, CTO of CheckDocs said,

“We are delighted to be working with another of the UK’s best-known property brands, Hamptons. It’s clear that the only way for large lettings agents to handle the ever-increasing compliance burden is for them to work smarter, helped by technology. Artificial Intelligence works away in the background, removing much of the boring, manual effort and ensuring that agents avoid regulatory gaps – and steep fines.”
