Seedrs-backed startup launches app to bring students and landlords together
A London-based startup, SPCE, has launched today (November 8) addressing critical issues of students and their landlords in the rental market.
The company offers a student lettings app, which raised £280k on Seedrs this year, and aims to make provide university students find rooms or entire properties to rent.
The company has partnerships with many student accommodation providers as well as Experian, which is to work with SPCE helping students develop credit ratings whilst studying.
Leon Ifayemi, CEO of SPCE, said: “Anyone currently at university or who’s graduated in the past will be more than likely have their fair share of horror stories about finding, securing and living in rented accommodation.
“The truth is that many landlords will also have a tale to tell about renting properties to students. The launch of SPCE will change all this and I am delighted to unveil it today.”
SPCE has arrived on the market with 50,000 rooms for rent, and 15,000 students pre-registering to download the proptech app. The business has made agreements with six universities and has a presence in regions such as London, Newcastle and Manchester.
Ifayemi continued: “Not only are we going to make it easy for students to find properties and for landlords to locate new tenants, but we are also going to make communication between both parties throughout the tenancy absolutely effortless.
“Throw in the ability for students to build a credit rating and the fact that parent guarantors are kept in the loop, and we’re confident that SPCE is going to drag student lettings into the modern day.”
