“To create a fairer, more equitable online marketplace for the UK’s private landlords and renters”

Our Vision

At HomeRenter we believe the traditional lettings model is broken and unfair to tenants and landlords alike. We believe tenants are sick and tired of property searches that feel like wild goose chases and culminate in rip-off ‘admin’ fees. We believe landlords are getting poor value and service from existing agents, not to mention a tough ride from the press and Government. What’s more, contrary to received opinion, we believe the rental market works best when you remove the middleman and allow property owners and renters to connect via a managed community and operate in harmony.

The vision, therefore, behind HomeRenter is to create an AirBnB-style marketplace for private rentals in the UK that delivers superior value to both landlords and tenants whilst putting right several of the imperfections of the current category.
