Property visits - Doing it the Viewber way

Posted on 4 Feb, 2019


Have you ever wished you could clone yourself or be in two places at the same time? That’s the issue with all things property - it’s a hands-on job that takes you away from your desk.

Whether you’re an estate agent, property manager, landlord or work in the home insurance industry, there will always be a need to visit properties and sometimes just a 10-minute cursory look can take up half a day, when you factor in travel and paperwork.

We have developed Viewber to give property-related companies another pair of eyes when they need them most – during periods when they need to concentrate on income-winning activities and not be away from the office.

Our Viewbers can visit any property in the UK to carry out a general inspection, fact check, take photographs and even create walk-through videos. We are happy to work with clients beforehand to ensure the visit is tailored to specific circumstances or agendas and a property report will follow shortly afterwards. There is a range of reports available to suit your inspection needs and our blog on follow-up reports details all the Viewber report packages available.

Why order a property visit?

To check if a tenant is still in situ – sometimes there is reason to check if a tenant is still living in the property – perhaps if channels of communication have broken down or if the rent has stopped being paid. A Viewber can carry out an inspection to check for signs of habitation.

To check the condition of a rental property – every tenancy agreement requires the tenant to take care of the property but unless you physically take a look, letting agents and landlords can be none the wiser when it comes to the property’s condition. When you book a property visit, the Viewber will look for signs of obvious damage and general standards with photo back up if necessary.

To monitor a vacant property – landlords, second home owners, estate and letting agents may all be responsible for an empty property - a visit by a Viewber provides peace-of-mind that the property is secure and stands in good condition, both inside and out.

When photographs are needed – many insurance claims and reports need photographs for third-party verification, and our Viewbers are happy to visit a property and document things like water or fire damage, vandalism or damage from a break in.

Give yourself the luxury of being able to concentrate on the really important tasks and send a Viewber to make a property visit instead. It’ll save you valuable time, and we all know time is money.
