My Property Box has increased its portfolio of rental properties by 20 per cent following the completion of a takeover deal.
The move is part of the Darlington based letting agency’s plan to develop business throughout the Tees Valley and comes just seven years after the company was launched – and the number of homes on its books has grown following the takeover of Holt Estate Agents, which had an office in Thornaby. The new headquarters is on Grange Road, Darlington.
The company has created its own suite of software, allowing landlords to access contract forms via a smartphone as well as being able to photograph and submit required documents.
Tenants also benefit following the development of in-house application software ‘AppTrack’ which allows employment and landlord references, ID checks and credit checks to be gathered more efficiently, reducing the whole completion process.
Ben Quaintrell, Managing Director, said, “My Property Box has added more homes to its portfolio as a result of the takeover, which underlines our ambition to continue to grow and make our innovative and comprehensive services available to landlords and tenants across a much wider area.
“Having founded the business just seven years ago, I’m hugely excited at this expansion which allows the company to add to our reputation as a trusted lettings agency offering excellent service and expert advice.”
