Marks Out Of Tenancy is like TripAdvisor but for rental properties. We all read reviews of hotels before going on holiday we can rate an HDMI cable on Amazon so why can’t we research the place we want to call home before we start spending half our monthly income on it? We’ve got a worldwide rental problem: In Australia, almost 1 in 5 rental properties have major structural problems. In the UK, a quarter of all tenants have been evicted at least once through no fault of their own. In some of North America’s major cities, as many as a third of tenants can’t get adequate maintenance performed by their landlord. This is a global issue, so we’ve created a global solution but at the same time, never losing sight of each individual tenant. So how does it work? Let’s talk features: Every rental property in over 70 countries is researchable and rateable using our smart international address validation system. Open source mapping information provides the most up-to-date image of your local area. There’s an image and video gallery for you to store time-stamped before and after pictures We’re also writing a country-specific legal resource centre enabling you to find out what your rights are wherever you’re renting. and we’re dragging in useful school, transport, and crime data from all over the internet to paint the clearest picture of where you’re planning to move, before you move there. We’re leveling the field, restoring power back into the hands of the renters; providing the platform on which honest landlords and letting agents are encouraged and the terrible ones are made publicly accountable for their actions. But we need your help to take back control. Tell us your story at www.marksoutoftenancy.com, join the discussion on social media. Together we can make a difference.
