Dorset’s largest private landlord, DWP Housing Partnership, has launched an interactive app for its residents to manage their tenancies remotely.
The first phase of development allows users to pay their rent and browse available rental properties with the capability to report faults and maintenance issues to be added in the future.
Steve Wells from DWP Housing Partnership, said, “We have had plans for an app for a few years, but Covid led to us accelerating the roll-out.
“It enables tenants to manage their properties from their phone and means they don’t have to come to our offices… making lives easier for our tenants is helpful for them and of benefit for us, and the app makes it happen.”
Almost 15 per cent of DWP’s 3,000 tenants have already downloaded the app, which was created by B4B, an agency based in Poole.
